B Lab East Africa is a nonprofit organization that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good. B Lab’s vision is that one day all companies will compete to be Best for the World, and as a result society will enjoy a more shared and durable prosperity. B Lab implements its work through four complementary initiatives:

  1. building a community of leaders, certified B-Corporations;
  2. helping all companies to measure and manage their impact on the people, communities and ecosystems they touch;
  3. creating an enabling policy and legal environment for mission-driven companies and their investors;
  4. including the development of a new corporate form (the benefit corporation) that removes impediments to creating social benefit alongside shareholder value.
