B Lab's work would be impossible without the vision and generous support from its community of funders & partners. To all of you, we say THANK YOU. We are humbled by your leadership and commitment. If you're interested in discussing a partnership opportunity, please get in touch.
B Lab Australia & New Zealand is thrilled to welcome Beyond Bank as our first Community Partner. As a certified B Corporation, Beyond Bank is already a leader of the for-purpose business movement. With this partnership, we will work together to grow and support the B Corp movement and highlight their leadership as a business that's striving to be both the best in and for the world.
“Community is in our DNA. It speaks to our purpose and who we are as a business. So being able to support our B Corp community, to grow this important movement and deepen the positive impact that we all can have, is a privilege. We are thrilled to be on-board as the first Community Partner to help this community flourish”.
Peter Rutter, General Manager of Community Development
B Lab Co-Founder Andrew Kassoy met Danny Algamor, CEO of Small Giants at the Skoll World Forum in 2012. Danny committed Small Giants to becoming the first B Corp in Australia and, as impact investors, went on to require all of Small Giants investments to become B Corps. With the enourmous support of Small Giants, B Lab Australia & New Zealand was created in 2013, with a launch event in 2014.
Partnerships are with B Lab Australia & New Zealand and are entirely independent of B Corp Certification.
