Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

In April 2017, Danone expanded its health, sustainability and social impacts by bringing together its U.S. dairy business and WhiteWave Foods to form what is now Danone North America. The Danone subsidiary incorporated as a public benefit corporation, meaning it is legally committed to balance shareholders’ financial interests with the social benefits it creates for people, their communities and the planet. It also set a commitment to become a Certified B Corporation® by 2020, an ambition the company met nearly two-years ahead of schedule thanks to the passion and perseverance of a cross-functional team of more than 120 employees who saw the tremendous opportunity to not only codify the company and its brands long-time responsible business practices but also make a meaningful commitment to continuously improve.

Danone North America aspires to nourish lives and inspire a healthier world through food. Its portfolio of beloved, trusted and pioneering brands in fresh dairy; organic dairy; plant-based; fresh foods; and coffee creamers and beverages sustain and delight people at any age and during any moment of the day. As a business unit of Danone, representing more than 15% of the global Danone business, it is one of the top 15 food and beverage companies; the top organic food maker; and a leader in plant-based foods and beverages in the U.S. Its brands include Silk®*, So Delicious®*, Horizon®*, Vega®*, Wallaby® Organic*, Earthbound Farm®*, Alpro®*, International Delight®, Activia®, DanActive®, Danimals®*, Dannon®*, Danino®, Light & Fit®, and Oikos®. The company has corporate hubs in White Plains, New York; Broomfield, Colorado; and more than 15 manufacturing facilities.

* These subsidiaries and/or brands have been reviewed and independently meet the performance requirement for certification and therefore are allowed to use the Certified B Corp logo and other associated Intellectual Property.”
