Talking Points: As you know, our company’s gone through an important evolution: We’ve tried to build our company to not just create private wealth, but to create a positive impact on the world through the power of our business. And part of that evolution has measuring what matters most to us: How we treat our employees, how we contribute to our community, and how we address our environmental challenges.

Talking Points: B Lab has also built tools to help you understand how you can implement some of the practices mentioned and improve your score. You can use the Customized Improvement Report to show you how much each question is worth and how many points your company earned, so that you can prioritize improvements. You can also use the Best Practice Guides that give specific guidance on how to implement a particular practice.
Talking Points:Why do this? It gives you the power to benchmark your performance against other 2500 that no other tool provides. It should give your employees an opportunity to lead and implement something – especially those that are in thankless roles – an opportunity to turn them into heroes. I guess the question is why not if its free! It is a public good that everyone aught to use.
