Commitment to being a force for good has been a part of our company's identity and vision since starting the business in 1991, and becoming a Certified B Corporation in 2013 helped to further codify this long-held value.
B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We are proud to be a part of the B Corp movement, alongside like-minded businesses whose values-based missions ring true with our own. Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,200 Certified B Corps from 38 countries and over 120 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
Check out a snapshot of our B Corp score:
New Belgium knows that we are profitable, not in spite of our social and environmental efforts, but because of them. By gifting ownership in the company and investing in the happiness of our coworkers, the best of the best join our team and they give their hearts. A 93% retention rate is good for the bottom line. By reducing our water use and donating money to the research and repair of the Colorado River, we are increasing the likelihood that we’ll have clean and abundant water for many generations. Preserving our #1 ingredient is also good for business. And you know what?! We aren't alone. What we’ve been doing since Day 1 at New Belgium is now a movement, and that movement is B Corp!
