B Lab Co-Founder Jay Coen Gilbert

Activate World

The benefit corporation form was first created in Maryland in 2010. Later, Conscious Capitalism became a movement based on a 2013 book co-authored by John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods. Together, capitalism and business models require more than just maximizing shareholder value. Senator Elizabeth Warren has recently proposed new legislation on accountable capitalism that will present new opportunities and challenges for business leadership.

Jay Coen Gilbert - Co-Founder of B Lab and the B Corp Movement

Sustainable Nation

Jay Coen Gilbert joins Sustainable Nation to discuss: Creating and growing the B Corp movement Updates on the state of B Corp worldwide The importance of an inclusive economy Advice and insights for sustainability leaders Jay Coen Gilbert Final Five responses: What is one piece of advice you would give other sustainability professionals that might help them in their careers? Reach out, reach out, reach out. There's power in community that doesn't exist inside your company and seek out or build for yourself a robust community of practice that can help you accelerate your learning and the progress that your company will make. You'll move much faster when you're working with people than if you're working on your own. What are you most excited about right now in the world of sustainable business? Actually, I would say what I'm most excited about is the work around building an inclusive economy. I think that the work in sustainability is beginning to orient itself more directly and clearly and explicitly with the here and now needs of everyday people who are feeling left behind. I think that's one of the most exciting things that I see happening right now. And I see that leadership coming not just from sort of social first B Corps, but even from folks who are considered to be a sort of an environmental first B Corp are beginning to do work to build an inclusive economy in their businesses and their supply chains in a way that I hadn't seen two, three, five years ago. What does one book you would recommend sustainability professionals read? What is one book that I would recommend sustainability professionals read? You know what, it's a great question. I don't think it's a book about sustainability. And I think that the most important things that I've read have been things that reminded me about the "why" we're doing this and not the "how." So I think one of the most important texts that I think that has been read is Martin Luther King's Letter From Birmingham Jail. I think it's one of the most important pieces of writing in the twentieth century. And I think it speaks to this particular moment in history and not just to one from 55 years ago. It really issues a clear call to action, and asks us to really question whether we are being to moderate in our demands of ourselves or companies, or the companies that we are doing business with. And so for me, that's not a book, but since most people don't have time to read whole books anyway, I would say, get yourself a copy. Google "letter from Birmingham jail." Read that. And think about how it's calling us to move from a place of moderation to a place of being drum majors for justice and sustainability and what that means in our current environment. What are some of your favorite resources or tools that really helped you in the work that you do? I'd say the most important resources or the people that I work with every day. I learned a ton from the folks at B Lab, not just in our North American organization but through all of our global partners. And so the most important tool I have is the phone and the computer, so that I can be in touch with leaders around the country and around the world who can tell me all the cool things that they're doing, and then I can benefit from their wisdom and their innovation. And finally, where can our listeners go to learn more about you and the work that you're leading? Bcorporation.net

Episode 40: Interview with Jay Coen Gilbert on the growth and success of B Corps and how the movement aims to re-define success in business

The Sustainability Agenda

Jay Coen Gilbert is co-founder of B Lab, the non-profit organisation that serves a global movement of people using business as a force for good. B Lab certifies B Corporations, companies that meet the highest standards of verified, overall social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.Since its inception in 2006, the B Corp movement has grown so that there are currently over 2,300 certified corporations operating within 150 industries in 50 countries. Jay also serves on the board of Investors’ Circle, an organisation dedicated to the acceleration of patient capital markets towards a sustainable future. Prior to founding B Lab, Jay enjoyed a successful career in the private sector, notably through AND 1, a 250 million dollar basketball footwear and apparel company which he co-founded and later sold.In this encouraging interview, Jay provides some fascinating insights into an exciting global movement that aims to re-define success in business. He describes how institutions are typically slow to react to social change and how there is ample opportunity to cater to millennials’ greater concern for social and environmental issues, both as consumers and as a workforce. He outlines how B Corps unlock the full potential of business by harnessing the power of competition so that businesses not only compete to be the best in the world but “the best for the world.” He also describes the “B Impact Assessment,” the comprehensive accreditation system which accounts for supply chains, workers’ rights, the environment, community engagement and governance, thereby providing a holistic and genuine picture of a company’s impact. This assessment is fully transparent and is regularly updated through solicited public engagement. Joel also touches on B Corps’ relationship with finance by describing how larges investors can use B Corps as a blueprint for managing systemic risk. Joel is optimistic about the prospects for expansion of the movement, pointing to Danone as the first Fortune 500 Company with aspirations to join, but stresses how the ultimate goal is to change attitudes in the business community. Finally, he outlines the need for a more inclusive and distributive form of capitalism, stressing how the rise of populism is symptomatic of a growing disenchantment with an economic system that rewards an ever shrinking portion of the population.The post Episode 40: Interview with Jay Coen Gilbert on the growth and success of B Corps and how the movement aims to re-define success in business appeared first on The Sustainability Agenda.
