What makes B-Corporations—organizations who are certified to meet higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance—uniquely positioned to create shared value? In the new webinar, "Business Unusual: How B-Corporations Create Shared Value," experts from B-Lab and the Shared Value Initiative will discuss concrete examples of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who are creating shared value, as well as the tools they use to manage both social impact and financial returns.

Join the executive director of the Shared Value Initiative, Justin Bakule, in conversation with B Lab co-founder Andrew Kassoy, Hardik Savalia, B Lab Senior Associate, and shared value innovator Mark Kramer, to learn how the B-Corp movement is helping SMEs create shared value.

In this webinar, we'll explore: 

  • What are the fundamental values behind shared value and how do they manifest within B Corps?
  • What B-Corp certification components overlap with the concept of shared value and what are the differences? 
  • What are the tools that are helping the B Corp Community balance and manage their impact and returns? 
  • What are examples of SMEs creating shared value? What strategies are unique to SMEs?
  • What are the biggest challenges to adoption?
