B Corp Climate Action Group Survey
The B Corp community aspires to take more urgent action to combat climate change and build resilient businesses. In 2019, B Corp launched a Measure What Matters Work Group and Guide with the goal to have every B Corp estimate their carbon footprint and take at least one new Climate Action by June 2020. Moreover, more than 500 B Corps committed to Net Zero by 2030. This Survey aims to understand your perspectives and potential barriers to measuring your Carbon Footprint and taking action to address it. Information gathered in this survey will allow us to craft resources specific to the needs of B Corps and make it easier to get started with measuring, making goals, and taking Climate action. Thank you for your time, your feedback is imperative to our success.
