Bonterra Organic Estates Recognized as a 2022 B Corp “Best for the World”
Viña Concha y Toro´s Californian subsidiary received this recognition for its exceptionally positive impact on the environment.
This recognition celebrates Bonterra Organic Estates longtime regenerative business operations and puts the company in the top five percent of similarly sized global B Corps for positive environmental impact.
“Bonterra Organic Estates has championed regenerative organic agriculture and responsible business practices since our founding, and we are honored to be in this position of leadership within the global B Corp community,” said Giancarlo Bianchetti, CEO of Bonterra Organic Estates. “Looking ahead, we plan to build on this momentum and will continue to develop forward-thinking initiatives, both within the environment impact area and beyond.”
The Best for the World recognition is administered by B Lab, the global nonprofit network that certifies and mobilizes B Corps. B Lab annually grants the Best for the World distinction to Certified B Corps whose verified B Impact Scores in the five impact areas evaluated in the B Impact Assessment — community, customers, environment, governance, and workers — rank in the top five percent of all B Corps in their size group.
After being recognized as a Best for the World “Changemaker” in 2018 and 2019 for making the most positive improvements to their overall impact, Bonterra Organic Estates achieved an “Outstanding” New B Corp Score of 130 during its recertification in 2021, a notable 37% increase from its previous score. Now, the company adds the 2022 “Best for the World” in the Environment impact area designation to its accomplishments.
