Kombucha and specialty tea display along the perimeter of the deli section as shoppers likely pair something to drink with their tasty on-the-go selections. Consumers seeking selections that are more eco-friendly can look to Brew Dr. Kombucha, as the company plans to become carbon-neutral by 2030.
“Certified B Corps are considered leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy, and we take that responsibility very seriously,” said Dan Stangler, Chief Executive Officer of Brew Dr. “Adjusting our operations to achieve carbon neutrality is the clear path for Brew Dr. to continue proudly upholding our mission of doing our best for people and the [planet].”
The company’s announcement to prioritize carbon-neutral operations is part of several Brew Dr. initiatives currently underway in celebration of B Corp Month in March. According to the release, the company states it is the first major kombucha company to become B Corp certified.
Currently, Brew Dr. offsets all scope 1 and 2 emissions for operations. The brand plans to cover 15 percent of the larger scope 3 neutrality by the end of 2022, and entirely offset scope 3 emissions by 2030.
The company has also set a goal to complete 100 hours of community service in March for B-Corp Month, including teaming up with fellow Certified B Corporation, Patagonia, and local nonprofit, Willamette Riverkeepers, for a Day of Service on March 30.
