Latin American B Corp Sustainability Challenges 2015
With about 150 certified B Corps across six countries, the continent is the fastest growing B Corp region outside of North America.
Latin America has produced a fertile crop of B Corp enterprises. To explore the challenges and opportunities facing B Corps, NBS gathered a group of 22 B Corps from Chile, Argentina and Colombia to form the first Latin American B Corp council.
This report is the first outcome of the council’s work. It is a first step towards understanding, systematizing and using what happens in the B Corp world as inspiration and knowledge for a sustainable society. We invite you to be part of the next steps.
