Recently we became a certified B-Corp, affirming that our philosophies of brewing good beer for the community and supporting the people who support us, while always looking at new ways to tread lighter on our Earth, are on the right track.
So, what is B-Corp?
B-Corp is an independent accreditation for profit businesses that meet rigorous standards set around governance, workers, community, environment, and business impact models. It certifies companies that are concerned for their communities and the environment.
What it means for Stone & Wood is that we’ve joined a growing global community of companies dedicated to being agents of positive change, including Patagonia, New Belgium Brewing and Ben & Jerry’s. These businesses have all proven that they meet high standards of social, economic and environmental accountability and transparency.
When we refer to brewing good beer, of course the quality of our product is our highest priority but ‘good’ goes beyond the rational attributes of our beer. It’s about what we do through our Ingrained (community), Green Feet (environment) and Brewlife (people) programs. We believe it is our responsibility, as the local brewer, to positively impact our communities.
We’re humbled to join a community of like-minded companies determined to set a new standard for how business can be used as a force for good.
