Certified B Corporations are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. B Corps aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problem.

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. B Lab, a third-party non-profit certifies it.

To obtain B Corp certification, a company must complete a B Impact Assessment (BIA) and earn an audited minimum score of 80 out of 200 possible points and recertify - with the aim to continuously improve - every three years. Visit B Cop™ website

"We have a dream.That one day, all companies will compete not only to be the best in the world but the best for the world." B Corp™

DANONE'S B CORP AMBITION

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.

This goal is supported by Danone’s recent decision to become an Entreprise à Mission (2020).

It is also an expression of our long-time commitment to sustainable business and to Danone’s dual project of economic success and social progress.
