Who can see your viewing activity?
Will this recording be made available later?
Hi B Lab Team - will the recording be made available after the call?
Dan said it would be recorded.
How will these changes affect those already in the certification process?
Hi Mariana - would you mind posting your question in the Q&A? (see below on your screen). This will help us keep track of the incoming questions. Thanks!
Thanks, just posted!
I recently did the recertification. I think there is a problem with gas sales in Europe. The new rules require not to sell gas by 2030 if I am not wrong (for utilities companies). But if gas is still a relevant commodity consumed in Europe which is the advantage if a BCorp doesn't sell it? Doesn't change the overall usage of gas (someone else will sell it) nor the emissions, because the problem is infrastractural not a free of constraints choice. I would always prefer a BCorp to sell it instead of another company because we could do compensation strategies. Thanks
Hello! To who wrote the above message, just wanted to point out that there might be a technical issue as the message seems linked to my name (Valentina Zanini) but I did not send it - might be a case of homonymy, but I thought I'd give you a heads-up just in case
ok I'll post it in the question section. Don't know about the technical problem. Massimo Bello here. Thanks!

As a B Corp, we like that it took us quite some time (like over a year) to get minimum points to be certified. It made us improve our strategy and further solidify it to be long term. Now we are getting over 100 points regularly and winning awards for our impact
There are certain industries that have multiple impacts, and with some impacts there are negative consequences in other areas. Do you see the potential to include negative/positive risk factors that can change scores? Also, I see a lot of Real Estate Investment Companies popping up, receiving high scores and the certification, however given the nature of the business, may need a longer evaluation period than what is shown.
Will the performance review for B Corp Certification result in all industries having the same pathway of questions? Currently we see that different BCorp's have very different maximum achievable scores (e.g. in the environment section).
Do you think that in the future it will be possible to create peer groups of bcorp's so that we can have benchmarks between bcorp's in the same industry, or in the same country, etc.?
will the integration with GRIs be through the offline interpreter you have prepared in excel or will there be an online tool in the future?
Will SDGs Action Manager be able to be used as a standard for Global Compact's Communication On Progress in the future?
Wanted to amplify this question: Please can you share plans/thoughts about B Corps who are the subject of negative press? There have been some high-profile cases in the past few months which have caused B Leaders and B Corps a number of problems when discussing value of the certification.
Any recommendation to online services. (decentralize manufacturing & distributed design) How the B-Corp can be archived?
