The Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corporation is proud to announce that we have officially joined the B Corp community, as a Pending B Corp. We are excited to join the group of global companies committed to using business as a force for good!

Pending B Corp

Our Pending B Corps status means that we have gone successfully completed the B Impact Assessment with the B Lab, and we meet or exceed requirements for certification.

What is B Corp?

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive, sustainable economy. 

What does ‘Pending’ mean?

Full certification to B Corp requires achieving a minimum score on the rigorous Impact Assessment, which analyses impacts from business operations from the last year. For companies who are under a year old and do not yet have a year’s worth of activity to assess, they can get on the path to full certification and earn the temporary Pending certification.

Why become a B Corp?

B Corps have the highest standards for socially responsible business and are pioneering innovative ways to harness the power of business as a force for good.

We believe the business and markets can work as a force of good and positive change. 

We are looking forward to partnering with our B Corp peers to find new and creative ways to address some of the world’s biggest challenges – climate change, deforestation, species and biodiversity loss, poverty, gender inequality – through putting a price on carbon and supporting the transition to sustainable land use.

At Fourth Estate, we are thrilled to join this community!
