b&m are one of various organisations around the world that meet a standard of social and environmental impact in order to solve social and environmental problems.

Through our B Corp certification, we have obtained a worldwide respected certification.

What is B Corp

B Corp is a globally respected certification that has officialised the strong economic and social values that b&m uphold.
This certification leads b&m and other mission driven companies around the world by ensuring they meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

B Corp™ Movement

The B Corp movement is a global movement of People Using Business as a Force for Good®. Together, we are shifting our economic system from profiting only a few to benefitting all, from concentrating wealth and power to ensuring equity, from extraction to regeneration, and from prioritising individualism to embracing interdependence.


Accreditation Process

In order to reach B Corp certification, b&m underwent a rigorous accreditation process, where our performance was assessed using a point system and measured again 5 key categories: Governance, workers, customers, community and environment.

Striving for good

The extensive assessment process highlights b&m’s weakness regardless of our strengths. This determines a clear roadmap of improvements considering positive sustainable practices that should be carried out in the future in order for b&m to continue to strive for good.

Ethical Excellence

Maintaining ethical excellence is closely monitored by B Lab. As a B Corp certified company we must regularly submit impact reports and commit to retaking a certification every three years. The aim is to ensure progress within ethical boundaries.

Every B Corp™ is scored using the five impact areas in the B impact assessment


How is your company taking care of your workers, improving their lives and well-being?


How is your company prioritising and taking care of the planet?


How is your company having a positive impact on your customer's lives?


How is your company giving back and contributing positively to the community?


How do you make sure your company's governance considers all stakeholders?
