Tea with Intention: Our B Corp Story
At Choice Organics, we want to create a world that’s better off because we’re in it. We believe in the power of business to help solve social and environmental problems and we hold ourselves to some pretty high standards. Since 1989, we’ve put people and the planet first. We are committed to crafting premium organic tea while also developing mutually beneficial relationships with our tea growers. We seek out ways to give back to our communities, and make responsible choices for the environment. We are on a continuous journey, taking active steps to make a positive impact. We call this Tea with Intention.
Choice Organics became a Certified B Corporation in 2014. Joining this global movement means we are held to higher standards of social and environmental impact, transparency, and accountability to stakeholders. The annual certification process requires evaluation in five key impact areas: governance, workers, community, environments, and customers. This includes a B Impact Assessment and onsite audits that measure our overall company contributions and ongoing efforts. Points are allocated to determine an overall score with the minimum threshold for B Corps being 80 points. In our most recent assessment we proudly scored 105.6 points. As we move forward on this journey, we aim to continue improving that score each year.
Here’s a look at some of the choices we are making to help shape a healthier planet and build stronger communities, for a better tomorrow.
