Triple Bottom Line

B Local Asheville & WNC

We believe in the power of business and social enterprise to build stronger communities and advance solutions to shared challenges like climate change and economic inequality. B Corp certification is a global standard and continual improvement framework for companies wanting to be a force for good. We’re proud to be a founding member of the B Local Asheville + WNC network of B Corps and to regularly offer learning programs to help all businesses build their capacity to deliver real impact.

Why we need more B-Corps in this region?

Our region is home to people and companies that care about the triple bottom line: not just the financial impact of their life and business, but also the oft-overlooked social and environmental impacts. That’s what being a B Corp is all about: B Corps aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.
