We are striving to become a world-class purpose-driven organisation.
To achieve this, we are seeking external accreditation for our Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability programme using a ready-made framework for excellence from B Corporation.
By mid 2022 we hope to be awarded the accreditation and join a community of over 4000 registered ‘B Corps’ globally. On achieving B Corp status, companies are required to legally change their statutes so that society and the environment become a core part of the company mission.
After extensive analysis and research, we decided B Corporation was the right accreditation to pursue as it is both comprehensive and rigorous, covering all business areas from Environment to People and with a thorough 200+-question assessment.
For us pursuing B Corporation accreditation isn’t just a tick box exercise to get the accreditation and pat ourselves on the back.
The B Corporation framework will provide us with a roadmap, that will see us making changes year on year to positively impact the environment, society and our people.
A pioneer future-B Corp in the wine and spirits industry
“Mirabeau is following in the footsteps of only a handful of winemakers and vineyards in Europe who have achieved B Corp status. The B Corp accreditation is not just about Mirabeau monitoring and improving our own business practices, such as setting annual targets to reduce our environmental impact, but also about us influencing our supply chain. This is both the most challenging part of the B Corp accreditation, and perhaps the area that excites us the most. By requesting our supply chain to track their environmental footprint in the context of the B Corp framework we hope to have a far greater impact than we could do alone.”Stephen Cronk, Maison Mirabeau CEO and Co-Founder
