VANKLEEK HILL, ON – Beau’s All Natural Brewing – a company known almost as well for its charitable and environmental work as it is for its beer – announced today that it has become the first Canadian brewery to be officially certified as a Benefit Corporation or “B Corp“.
According to the announcement, a Certified B Corp is “a for-profit entity that has achieved very high levels of social and environmental performance, and has chosen to consider benefit to community and the environment in business decision-making processes, instead of simple profit.”
Beau’s joins New Belgium Brewing of Colorado and Bison Brewing of California as the only three breweries in the world to receive B Corp certification, an honour that Beau’s co-founder Steve Beauchesne describes as being “about making a public commitment to maintaining our high ethical standards, and to being open and honest with the people in our communities who buy our beer.”
