Sharing Information

We educate businesses, associations and the public on the impact of sustainable business practices and how to make good choices in the marketplace.

Promoting PSI and ES

We actively promote positive social impact (PSI) and environmental stewardship (ES).

About Us


BCSI is committed to radical transparency. Our standards setting processes are ISO 65 compliant and we closely follow guidelines in the benefit corporation statutes.  We use guidelines established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and will be applying for ANSI accreditation.

We know there are lots of standards to choose from. Our advantage is in developing realistic, achievable standards out in the open with the backing and support of the association community. At the same time, the standards have a high level of credibility because we ensure no one group has undue influence.

Our Approach

We Build Bridges

Our 501(c)(3) (application pending) builds bridges between the not-for-profit and for-profit communities. We believe the participation of trade and professional associations in the development of benefit corporation standards are the keys to legitimacy, practical implementation and widespread adoption. We also believe consumers need to be educated on sustainable business practices in order to make good choices in the marketplace. Join the effort!
