With the growing number of corporations which partner with the UN the Benefit Corporation ruse was created to capture smaller businesses.
There are two methods by which a business can become a hidden partner with the UN. First, there is the "B-Lab", a non-profit founded in 2007, a "certification" program where businesses agree to meet certain environment and social standards. It is funded by the UN NGOs Rockefeller & Skoll Foundations.
And its Board of Directors include:
Lorene Arey – worked for Cisco, UN business partner
Debra Dunn – former Senior VP Corporate Affairs and Global Citizenship at Hewlett Packard (HP), right here in Boise!
Jay Coen Gilbert – founder B Lab who in a video stated “Use business as a social change”, notice the reference to the Skoll World Forum, top left.
Andrew Kassoy – former managing director in Credit Suisse First Boston’s private equity department, UN business partner
Bart Houlahan - is a Henry Crown Fellow of the Aspen Institute, UN NGO.
A business applying for B-Corporation certification first completes a B Impact assessment. An analysis is done on the assessment and the business is given a GIIRS rating which will either qualify them as a B-Corporation or not. These certification programs are set up by the UN to control businesses through their sustainable development requirements.
The second method is through the development of Benefit Corporations. This is a major goal of B-Labs, to get legislation through states for Benefit Corporations. (Idaho succumbed to this corruption in 2015 with Benefit Corporation legislation.) Here are businesses that are B-Corporations.
One thing to remember, B-lab, B-Corp, and Benefit Corporations align with and promote Agenda 21 goals of corporatism control. Special tax credits are given, the businesses can take profits away from shareholders, the public is indoctrinated into thinking their business is more special, and wealth is redistributed.
