Today, the efforts of our Champagne House were recognised as we became B Corp Certified, joining a community of companies that are leading a global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy.
Acquiring the certification is an extensive process involving the assessment of each brand’s social and environmental influence with more than 200 questions as defined by B Lab, covering governance, employees, communities, and the environment.
Practices and policies related to Piper-Heidsieck’s mission, ethics, accountability, and transparency.
Financial, physical, professional and social well-being of Piper Heidsieck’s employees.
Social and economic good of the communities in which Piper-Heidsieck operates.
Value created for direct customers and consumers of Piper-Heidsieck’s products and services.
"Achieving B Corp certification reflects our pioneering ethos and daring initiative to be a driving force of change within the Champagne industry. This certification not only recognises our environmental impact in the vineyards, but extends to our entire winemaking ecosystem, our community and our workplace."
"The B Corp Certification serves as a recognition to the collective efforts of our teams, spanning from our wine-growing partners to all our suppliers.
This holistic approach encourages us to integrate environmental, social, and societal considerations into each step of our decision-making process.
Rather than being an end in itself, this B Corp Certification serves as a catalyst for our ongoing journey towards continuous improvement and unwavering transparency.
We hope that our approach will inspire other winegrowers, other oenologists, other vineyards in Champagne - but also globally - encouraging them to embrace the B Corp movement."
