Our B Corp members form part of the community of 62 companies in Australia and 1297 globally. Big brands such as Patagonia and Etsy are also now B-corporations, proving that publicly traded or large companies can bring impact into not just the way they do business but why they do business.
Brad Krauskopf, CEO of Hub Australia, shares:
“We’re thrilled that Hub has completed their B Corp re-certification. As a founding Australian B Corp Third Spaces is committed to co-working and creating a community for growing small businesses and entrepreneurs, their work fosters other B Corps and we all work closely to redefine success in business.”
– Alicia Darvall, Executive Director of bLab in Australia
Creating value Beyond Profit is one of the core values of Hub (our others are Resourceful, Adaptable, Collaborative, and Accountable).
The B Corp assessment gives us a framework and guide to measure our success against rigorous values and responsible practices as we scale as a company.
In the swirl of being a fast-growing start-up, it helps us know if we are walking the walk or just talking about it. We look forward to deepening our impact as a BCorp and supporting our members to do the same.

Hub Australia national partner Clearpoint Counsel has also developed a program to help small business get certified. B Ready Program Director, Anna Reeves explained more about their initiative:
“B Ready Program was developed from our own experience of B Corp certification and taking our clients through the B Corp certification process. We realised it was a valuable framework for companies to build strong culture, governance practices and lay the foundations to meet the shift in customers, employees and investors expectations in the new economy.”
