We’re Proud to be B Corp Certified
Brew Dr. is proud to be the first major kombucha company to become B Corp Certified!
What is a B Corp?
Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are on a mission to do business better, meeting the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
The process to become a Certified B Corporation requires completion of the B Impact Assessment. This rigorous, tailored evaluation measures a company’s impact on its workers, community, environment, and customers. It shows companies the areas in which they excel and provides a roadmap for continuous improvement. The threshold to become a Certified B Corporation is 80 points. Brew Dr. scored a 91.3, and we are dedicated to continually making business decisions that help this number grow.
Today, there are over 3,700 Certified B Corpations around the globe, including New Seasons Market, Miir, Ben & Jerry’s, and Patagonia, to name a few. You can find an inclusive list of B Corps here.
Good For People, Communities, and the Planet
At Brew Dr., we’re proud to focus our efforts on sustainability innovation and community giveback. Our 100% renewable energy initiative saves 1.42 million pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere every year. That’s equivalent to taking 140 cars off the road annually. We source our ingredients and packaging from the Pacific Northwest whenever possible, which reduces carbon emissions and keeps money in the local economy. We also repurpose 100% the alcohol distillate from our brewing process into bioethanol for fuel, in partnership with Oregon Clean Fuels Program.
We strive to be an ally in our community too. We joined 1% For The Planet to support environmentally-driven nonprofits. We established ‘Local Love,’ a paid day off program for our employees to volunteer at an organization of their choice. In 2020, we began donating 1% of the revenue from our Uplift products to organizations focused on racial justice.
At Brew Dr., we believe in using business as a force for good, making decisions based on the belief that people and planet are just as important as profit. We’re honored and excited to become a Certified B Corporation, and strive to be the change we seek in our world, balancing profit with purpose, and considering people and place in every decision we make.
