[“Don’t Bet on Dinosaurs – Good Business is Good for Business!”] Nathan Stuck, Founder of Profitable Purpose Consulting, discusses his deep expertise and extensive global network in the triple bottom line business movement now sweeping the planet – especially the B-Corp / B-Certification credential that has been earned by thousands of conscious companies throughout the world already, and that thousands more companies are endeavoring to earn in the next three years. Developed and administered by B-Lab, the B-Certification is among the most comprehensive, independent third-party business credentials that indicates extensive vetting and verification across social, environmental, governance, and community impact KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). In other words, companies that earn the B-Certification have shown that they are out-competing their conventional, “single-bottom-line” counterparts across a variety of essential criteria, and, as the world’s citizens (sometimes referred to as “consumers”) are increasingly demanding products and services from companies committed to strong environmental and social stewardship practices, B-Certified companies are realizing increased competitive advantage, talent retention, earned media, and profitability as a result. And, Nathan is one of the premier corporate consultants in this rapidly growing global ecosystem, helping companies prepare for, attain, and maintain their B-Certification credentials. Through Profitable Purpose Consulting, Nathan and his team of experts are among the best to get your company “vetted and vouched for” through B-Certification.
