The B Ratings System: version 1.0

The first step in becoming a B Corporation is taking the B Survey and seeing how you stack up against the new standard for social and

environmental performance. Taking the B Survey usually takes about 60-90 minutes. Once you’ve completed the survey, you will receive the

B Report that contains a composite score and if that score is above 80 (out of 200 points available) you will be eligible for certification.

Section 3: Products

This section focuses on benefits that inherently accrue to your stakeholders through the use of your products and services. It includes three areas: what you produce, how it is produced and who your target customer is.

Deliver Beneficial Products or Services

Does your Company deliver beneficial products or services? The main distinction we draw is between what you produce and how you produce it. These questions refer to the actual product or service itself, not the method by which it was produced.

Please list the types of products and/or services that your company produces.

Footwear

How do these products or services, through their usage, inherently create benefit for your customers?

Use Beneficial Methods of Production

Does the company use a beneficial method of production to deliver its products or services? This question refers to the method of production, not the actual product or service itself. Here we are concerned with how the product or service is produced, not what is being produced.

Products or services that have been produced using fair trade principles, and/or through environmentally sustainable practices create benefit as a result of their method of production. Companies that have locally sourced products or locally serviced customers (within 50 miles of company’s primary location) or hire from underserved communities also qualify as using a beneficial method of production.

What types of beneficial methods of production or service delivery does your company use?
