Sustainability Watch: Are benefit corporations beneficial?

APRIL 16, 2020

Welcome

The genesis of benefit corporations has created much hype about remarkable firms and the potential for social change. In the U.S., the benefit corporation is now the most widely adopted innovation in state corporate law in nearly two decades. Yet little is known about the firms that incorporate as benefit corporations.

In this webcast, we discuss findings from an empirical study of benefit corporations that provides the most comprehensive count of benefit corporations available and original, data-driven analysis of benefit corporations’ national dynamics and organizational characteristics.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand what it takes to become a benefit corporation
  • Learn about the difference between benefit corporations and B Corporations
  • Advantages and criticisms of the benefit corporation
  • What role do they play in the age of COVID-19
