B Analytics incorporate individual IRIS metrics into its company assessment framework – the B Impact Assessment. As such, organizations that go through B Corporation certification or a GIIRS rating process are required to provide data that is aligned with individual IRIS metrics. Furthermore, through the platform investors can ask portfolio companies to collect individual IRIS metrics of their own choosing. B Analytics shares data from GIIRS-rated companies and funds and B Certified companies the GIIN for use in producing broad market intelligence as a public good.
