Certified B Corporations (B Corp) are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving of a global movement of people using businesses as a force for good.1
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 and sustainable economy.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.2
“The TAN2000 International Regulatory Corporation (TANRC) is the final pivot for a computer club that founder Alan Tan created in elementary school to help others improve their knowledge and opportunities. Previously, the Connecticut-based Benefit Corporation operated as TAN2000 International Holdings Corporation (TANHC), developing a highly structured entrepreneurial marketplace that assisted many aspiring entrepreneurs in honing their concepts and connecting with needed service providers and investors. In developing the voluntary processes that allowed them to run the marketplace, the founding team realized that those same processes were also able to spot fraudulent marketplace activity within the private equity market.”2
TANRC holds a rating of 82.0 by B Corp assessments, and was an honoree for Best in Governance awards in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.3
