B Corp certified, aspiring to use our business as a force for good
At Volvic, we care about people, and we care about the planet. That’s why for us, B Corp certification is so much more than a certification. It’s about using our brand as a force for good.
The Volvic global brand is now the biggest natural mineral water brand with a B Corp certification in Europe*. We have joined more than 3,000 certified B corporations around the world that aim to balance impact with profit and contribute to a more ethical economy. Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. As part of this community, we are committed to continuously challenging ourselves and improving our environmental and social practices to make sure we follow the highest standards.
*B Corp Certification: Volvic global brand is the biggest natural mineral water brand (revenue based) to receive this distinction in Europe.
‘B Corp’ is shorthand for ‘Certified B Corporation’, an organization that’s part of a global movement dedicated to using business as a force for good. B Corps take the lead in doing business responsibly and meaningfully, considering the impact of their decisions on everyone and every stakeholder: their workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment.
Like the other businesses in the B Corp community, we’ve had every area of our organization intensively assessed and we passed a verified score. It’s up on the B Corp website for all to see. What’s more, if you were to read through our legal governing documents, you’d find our commitment to balancing profit with purpose right there, set in stone.
For us, our B Corp certification is a way of challenging ourselves to improve how we do business. It means that using business as a force for good is now written into our mission statement. We will continue to take responsibility for our actions by helping to preserve Volvic’s water source, investing in local projects and promoting local employment. And we will continue to find ways to have a positive impact on the world around us.
