Choosing to “B” Better: Celebrating B Corp Month

Being present. Volunteering. Remembering birthdays. Celebrating friends’ accomplishments. Caring for our health. These everyday efforts create extra goodness in the world—which is exactly what earns businesses a B Corp certification.

What is B Corp?


Yogi’s purpose aligns with B Corp’s: to make business a force for good. For us, this means that every cup of tea you brew contributes to agricultural regeneration, sustainability, and social responsibility at a local, national, and global scale.


B Corp prospects are evaluated in five impact areas: governance, workers, community, environment, and customers. This process includes an onsite audit and a 250-question assessment in which a company must score a minimum of 80 points in order to receive certification.




B Corp Month


B Corp Month is the annual celebration of Certified B Corporations around the world. Every year in March, B Corps address the positive impact they have on their stakeholders - workers, customers, the community, and the environment. This year’s motto of B Corp Month is Progress. Because B Corp Certification isn’t a destination. It’s an invitation to join the journey to better business. If you want to learn more about our progress and the impact on our stakeholders, check out our DO GOOD Section on the blog.




Our Certification


Our Eugene, Oregon facilities are no stranger to B Corp Certification, maintaining excellent scores since 2014—but our 2023 score was a personal best: a whopping 129.3 points! And over the years, we’ve picked up several accolades:


• Best For The World: Overall 2019

• Best For The World: Changemakers 2019

• Best For The World: Changemakers 2018

• Best For The World: Changemakers 2017





2023 was also the first year our entire company – including our European offices in Germany and factory in Italy received B Corp certification, respectively earning 117.6 and 108.5 points. These numbers make us extremely proud—but they’re not the point; the impact behind these results is what it’s all about.


We pore over every surface of our packaging, improving recyclability and reducing weight to lower our transit carbon footprint. We visit farms all over the world to understand farmers’ challenges and co-create solutions with them. We monitor our factories’ energy usage and waste production, chasing down every last improvement to work in harmony with and respect for nature. We care for our own workers, providing world-class benefits and promoting work-life balance.


The B Corp community is dedicated to proving that businesses can – and should – be a force for good; that business can thrive while putting people and planet before profit. From ethical sourcing practices to environmental conservation, pioneering sustainable packaging innovations and leading industry collaborations, every cup of YOGI tea you drink is doing its part to change the world. For that, we thank you.
