What is B Movement Builders?

B Movement Builders is a program for multinational, public companies to come together to lead systems change alongside and in support of the B Corp community, building a new narrative about the purpose of business. We are proud to announce that Givaudan is a founding member of B Lab's B Movement Builders connecting Switzerland to join forces with other purpose-led companies to drive the global movement of business as a force for good, and aligned to our journey to become B Corp certified.

Who are the B Movement Builders?  B Movement Builders are a coalition of leading, large companies who are scaling and accelerating global systems change to support long term value creation for all stakeholders. 

All B Movement Builders are publicly traded companies with at least $1 billion in revenue. They are committed to the principles of the B Movement and take individual and collective actions that bring those principles to life.  B Movement Builders aspire to increase their impact by learning from and collaborating with the global community of Certified B Corporations.  Together, B Movement Builders leverage their size and influence to move business farther and faster toward creating shared and enduring prosperity for all while driving their individual growth, culture and impact.

Join Us The B Movement Builders program is designed for companies who are genuinely committed to the principles of the B Movement.  Before joining B Movement Builders, companies must undergo a Risk Review to determine if they are involved in activities that are against the values of the B Movement, in which case they are ineligible.  The B Movement Builders program is not the same as B Corp Certification. Therefore, companies participating in B Movement Builders will not necessarily meet the same social and environmental performance standards as Certified B Corporations. However, as part of their participation and ongoing eligibility in the program, B Movement Builders need to make meaningful progress on key goals related to their social and environmental performance as overseen by B Lab’s independent Standards Advisory Council.
