Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on all their stakeholders. B Corps make this legal change by updating their articles of incorporation, reincorporating as benefit companies, or making other structural changes. The B Corp legal framework helps companies protect mission through capital raises and leadership changes and gives entrepreneurs and directors more flexibility when evaluating potential sale and liquidity options.
