15 B Corp clothing brands for the best ethical styles

When looking for a brand’s certification to back up its environmental and ethical claims, you have likely come across the certified B corporations. The certification is one of the most trusted sustainable certifications out there. 

B Corp clothing brands have not only shown a willingness to adopt sustainable practices, but have made concrete and verifiable steps to creating a cleaner industry.

So what does B Corp stand for and why is it so highly regarded?

What is B Corp certification and Why is it so Good?

Originally derived from ‘Benefit corporation’ and now simply shortened to B Corp, this certifying body looks at the entirety of a company’s social and environmental impacts. The label is not exclusive to fashion brands, but operates across a variety of sectors. For each brand assessed, everything from supply chain practices, to materials used, to charitable giving is examined to determine its negative and positive impact.

To obtain this impressive label, a brand is assessed against an internal framework and must have met three key criteria:

  • Social impact and environmental performance: Shown a commitment to people with a high social and environmental performance. To pass the review a company must have achieved a minimum of 80 out of 200 points on the B Impact Assessment. 
  • Corporate governance: Review and change their corporate governance structure, making a legal commitment to be accountable to all stakeholders, not just financial ones.
  • Transparency: Allow their performance to be assessed against B Lab’s standards and available to consumers on the brand’s B Lab profile, demonstrating an attitude of public transparency.

A Holistic Approach 

B Corp measures environmental performance and social responsibility. B corp brands must have made a real commitment to act ethically, fairly and sustainably.

Unlike many other certifying bodies, this holistic approach ensures the entire company is acting in an ethical manner rather than just one area or aspect of a brand. Getting the certification is no mean feat, the current average score for brands trying to get certified is just 50.9 points, far below the 80 point minimum score for obtaining certification.
