B Corp in Champagne
Piper-Heidsieck and Rare Champagne are the first Champagne houses to carry the prestigious B Corp certification, a sustainability credential for the highest standards of social and environmental performance, corporate responsibility and transparency.
With the certification, which was granted in August 2022, the two iconic brands of the Champagne region committed to upholding the highest social and environmental standards. This is an important step in realigning their business practices and having a positive impact on society and the environment.
The B Corp certification is one of the most demanding assessments ever. The B Impact Assessment includes over 200 questions formulated by B Lab that assess the social and environmental impact of each brand in the areas of governance, employees, society and the environment. B Corp certification also comes with transparency and accountability requirements to all stakeholders – not just shareholders. All results of the B Impact Assessment measured are publicly available on the B Lab Profile website for everyone to see.
B Lab certification is not just about assessing a product or service. It is about assessing the company’s global positive impact and its efforts to continuously improve.
