Polaris Impact Assessment

Polaris Impact Assessment – powered by B Lab
Family Businesses as a Force for Good

To enable FBN members to measure and improve sustainability practices, FBN is partnering with B Lab to develop the Polaris Impact Assessment (PIA). The PIA is a version of B Lab’s Impact Assessment that has been specifically customized for family businesses. The standard version of the B Lab assessment is well-established globally, having been taken by over 40,000 companies in over 50 countries to drive sustainability performance and improve their impacts.

Studies have shown that companies that have sustainability at its core attract talent, build credibility and outperform competitors. So join fellow FBN members in accelerating your sustainability journey by taking these four simple steps.
