Our third interview is with David Bronner, Cosmic Engagement Officer at Dr. Bronner’s, winner of the 2019 Outstanding Company Award.
Congratulations on winning a 2019 National Co+op Grocers Climate Collaborative award! What are you most proud of when it comes to your company’s climate work?
David Bronner: We are looking at every aspect of our soapmaking: ingredients and supply chain; the manufacturing process; efficiency at our facility; packaging and the end cycle of the product. We’re asking ourselves how we’re impacting the climate at every stage of soapmaking, both in terms of sequestering carbon and reducing emissions. We’re proud to be a leader in regenerative organic agriculture and fair trade supply chains.
What were the key factors to success in getting you where you are today on climate?
DB: Environmental stewardship has always been a company value from the beginning.
