Toward B Corp certification

In this increasingly complex world, big brands and companies are fundamentally challenged as to whose interests they really serve. At Danone, we are convinced that addressing this issue in straight and simple terms is the best way for our brands and our company to reinforce trust with employees, consumers, partners, retailers, civil society and governments. That is why we joined the B CorpTM movement.

Certified B Corporations are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. They meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

Our ambition to obtain this certification is an expression of our long-time commitment to sustainable business and to Danone鈥檚 dual project of economic success and social progress.

It is a significant step toward making sustainable business mainstream鈥攁nd which we believe to be the future.

A rigorous B Corp鈩 Certification reflective of core commitments 

B Corp Certification is a mark of trust: a promise that a company is doing business in a way that meets rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and is certified by B Lab, a third-party non-profit.

To obtain B Corp certification, a company must complete a B Impact Assessment and earn an audited minimum score of 80 out of 200 possible points and recertify - with the aim to continuously improve - every two years.

Since 2015, Danone has partnered with B Lab to help define a meaningful and manageable path to certification for multinationals and publicly traded companies, as well as accelerate growth of the B Corp movement into the mainstream.

A total of seventeen Danone entities have now earned B Corp鈩 Certification, including dairy subsidiaries in France (Les Pr茅s Rient Bio), in Spain, in the UK and in Ireland, plant-Based brand Alpro, organic baby food brand Happy Family in the U.S., Aguas Danone de Argentina, AQUA in Indonesia, Danone North America,聽Danone Canada, Danone Egypt, baby food brand Bl茅dina in France, Nutricia聽Bag贸 in Argentina, Danone Manifesto Ventures, Grameen Danone Foods Ltd, Danone Waters of America, and Danone Waters Spain.

As a result, over 30% of Danone鈥檚 global sales are now covered by B Corp鈩 certification, marking significant progress towards Danone鈥檚 ambition to become one of the first certified multinationals.

What is B Corp鈩?

B Corp is a sustainable business certification launched in the U.S. in 2006 that has been gaining momentum around the world. In line with Danone鈥檚 vision, the B Corp movement works to drive a cultural shift to redefine business success. Today, there are more than 2,300 B Corps in 50 countries.

B Lab, a non-profit organization, accredits B Corp certification to for-profit companies that demonstrate high standards of social and environmental performance. Danone鈥檚 ambition is to be among the first food multinational companies to obtain a global certification. We are partnering with B Lab to build the roadmap toward this goal.
