B Corps also meet high standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

On supporting businesses like BLK & Bold and other companies through the “Lift as We Climb Initiative,” Union noted, "We fully intend to support black-owned entrepreneurs in meaningful ways that lead to growth while encouraging and recycling the Black dollar in our community.”
