Positive impact : 37% of Bonduelle Group’s revenue is B Corp™ certified
In 2018, the Bonduelle Group announced its ambition to become a certified B Corp™ company by 2025. This ambition involves each of its entities obtaining certification one by one.
Today, a major step is taking shape with the certifications of Bonduelle in Italy and Bonduelle Fresh Americas in the United States.
The two Bonduelle Group entities are the first to meet B Lab’s demanding standards for social and environmental impact. They join the growing community of B Corp certified companies that are working collectively to make the global economy more respectful of the planet, more inclusive and more fair every day.
Positive impact, at the heart of the business model
These two certifications illustrate the Bonduelle Group’s determination to put positive impact at the heart of its business model. Bonduelle’s commitment over the last few decades has been reflected in concrete actions from field to fork, in all of its businesses and throughout the world. It has been formalized since 2020 through a roadmap called the B!Pact, based on three pillars:
- Food: our commitments to the plant-based food transition
- Planet: our commitments to protect the earth
- People: our commitments to the well-being of everyone
It sets the course for the key dimensions of positive impact, and defines the objectives and trajectories for achieving them. In 2022, this B!Pact roadmap has been revisited to remain consistent with rapidly changing social and environmental expectations. The B Corp certification process will accelerate the commitment and mobilization of all of the company’s businesses around the Group’s positive impact programs, such as inclusive recruitment practices, civic engagement actions, regenerative agriculture or the contribution to carbon neutrality.
