Video: The B Corp Movement Featured on PBS
This week has been a fairly significant one for the B Corp movement. On Wednesday, March 7, B Lab released their 2012 Annual Report and lists of “Best for the World” B Corps that are making a difference. On SocialFinance.ca, Joyce Sou highlighted the six Canadian B corps that made it to the “Best for the World” lists, and Alex Wood spoke about the evolution of capitalism in a thought-provoking post.
Last week, PBS NewsHour also featured this burgeoning movement, explaining what’s happening and featuring B Corps IceStone, Revolution Foods, and Warby Parker. Here’s their description, and the video:
