Corporate citizens paving the way for others

Danone North America is now the largest B Corp and Benefit Company in the world

In just one year, Danone North America (previously DanoneWave) has achieved B Corp certification, with a B Impact Score of 85.

‘To B or not to B Corp: that is no longer a question’, the powerful announcement by CEO of Danone Emmanual Faber was published following Danone North America’s B Corp certification. He said “it is now proven that it is possible to certify as a B Corp for large organizations that are committed to being change agents, for business and for the world we live in.”

With Danone North America and other subsidiaries already certified, Danone is now aiming to be the first multinational corporation to earn B Corp certification worldwide.
