This is a very common point of confusion. For this reason, in these pages and in all of our communication with you, we will always refer to a Benefit Corporation or a Certified B Corp in an effort to maintain clarity.
Ask yourself are they referring to a legal form or are they talking about a certification process. If the company is a “legal B Corp,” then that company is a Benefit Corporation. If the company is a Certified B Corp, there’s your answer. If you’re still confused, contact us and we’ll help you figure it out.
