About this Event

Certified B Corporations (https://bcorporation.eu) lead a growing global movement of people using business as a force for good. They believe that businesses can use entrepreneurship to solve social and environmental problems. In doing so, measuring the impact made is essential to ensure progress.

In order to become a Certified B Corporation, companies pass two requirements:

  • Meeting high levels of social and environmental performance by completing the B Impact Assessment (BIA) with a score of 80 points or more.
  • Adopting a framework of stakeholder governance, known as the B Corp Legal Requirement, to include the interests of all stakeholders in a company's purpose and decision-making.

B Lab has recently introduced the B Corp Legal Guidelines for companies in Belgium. In this webinar, we'll be zooming in on the implications of this legal change for the governance of a company, as well as the requirements for B Corp certification. To guide us through the legal framework, we have invited two wonderful guest speakers to share their insights:

  • Bram van Baelen - PhD Researcher Company Law at KU Leuven & Lawyer at Impact Lawyers
  • Marleen Denef - Founder Impact Lawyers, Director of ESELA - Legal Network for Social Impact & Prof. Dr. at KU Leuven.

In addition, the B Lab BeNeLux team will be available for all your questions regarding the developments of the B Corp movement in Belgium.
