How is B Corp different than USDA certified organic? Is one better than the other?

The USDA certification for the milk we use to make our yogurt ensures that the farmer adheres to organic standards like not exposing the cows to toxic persistent pesticides, antibiotic or hormones. The USDA is a government agency and regulatory organization that assesses adherence to regulatory standards.

B Corp Certification is an ongoing process. B Corp is a certification given after a company’s impact has been measured against the B Lab® impact assessment. The assessment has been developed to Measure What Matters and allows B Corps to compete to be the Best for the World®. A company must have and maintain a score of 80 or above to receive B Corp Certification.

B Corp certification is not a one-time review, it is an ongoing framework and evaluation for improvement. Together, Certified B Corporations® are redefining what success in business means.

Ben & Jerry’s has been B Corp certified for quite some time. Why has it taken Stonyfield so long?

At Stonyfield, we already think about the impact of everything we do--from what’s in the cup and how it’s made, to how it gets to you. We’ve been on a mission to create food that’s good for us, our kids and the environment all along.

We’ve been considering B Corp certification for some time, but we’ve been busy making yogurt. We knew we were already doing the work that the assessment measures. We felt that now was the time to formalize our commitment and join the global movement. We are excited to have taken this step in using business as a force for good.

Will your score always be the same?

It shouldn’t be. B Lab® audits our practices and policies to ensure that we meet minimum standards for environmental responsibility, corporate governance, worker engagement and transparency. We are audited every other year, and our score may go up or down depending on how we have changed over that time. Regardless, we must maintain a minimum score of 80 to be certified. We have committed to continual improvement against the B Lab® Assessment, so you should see our scores get even better over time.

Will you be communicating changes to your score in the future?

Yes! Our score will be revised every two years as we continue to re-certify. Our simple scorecard will be available on the B Corp landing page.
