Who governs the B Impact Ratings System?
The B Impact Ratings System is governed by an independent, Standards Advisory Council (SAC). The SAC is comprised of 14-16 members, each respected in the field for their wisdom and each with deep industry or stakeholder expertise.
Under the Standard Advisory Council's guidance, Version 1.0 of the B Impact Ratings System was launched in October 2007, using the best available open source performance standards and impact metrics from numerous sources, including the Global Reporting Initiative. Version 2.0 of the B Impact Ratings System was launched in January 2010. Prior to launching Version 2.0, the SAC engaged stakeholders in providing feedback on the B Impact Ratings System through both a private and public beta. Version 3.0 of the B Impact Ratings System is scheduled to launch in January, 2011.Current Standards Advisory Council Members Go>>
