Our purpose is to harness, while protecting, nature’s resources for the betterment of the world and its habitants by creating ethical, sustainable, better-for-you beverages and consumer products that not only uplift our communities, but that do right by our planet. Our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework is an articulation of this purpose and addresses key opportunities that are closely aligned with our business. For us, advancing projects in sustainability and social responsibility goes well beyond what we do but also understanding the effect it creates in our communities. That means measuring our impact in a quantifiable way—something we’ve coined as our return on impact. We have created a three pillar approach to addressing these opportunities for all stakeholders.
