Danone NA Certified As Eco-Friendly B Corporation

April 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Danone North America, maker of plant-based milk beverages and yogurts, was recently certified as a B Corporation that has established standards regarding social and environmental performance. Recently renamed from DanoneWave, the company also changed its legal structure to become a public benefit company. There was some worry that B Corporation certification and environmental friendliness would be costly, but that has not proven to be the case. The company’s largest dairy manufacturing plant has cut water usage, for example, by using new technology. The plant now saves 250,000 gallons a day. The company is encouraging suppliers to adopt sustainable practices, noting that plant-based packaging saves money that can be used to pay workers higher wages.
