OUR B CORP™ JOURNEY

Synlait’s commitment to elevating people and planet to the same level as profit was recognised in June 2020 when it became part of the B Corp™ community.

B Corp™ is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Certified B Corporations™ consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.

This movement resonates strongly with Synlait’s purpose to Do Milk Differently For A Healthier World. Learn more about what being a B Corp™ means for our people, our community, and our customers below.

Why is being a B Corp™ important to Synlait and our customers?

“Synlait’s mission is to be a catalyst for change. Becoming a B Corp™ commits us to balancing purpose and profit. We’re creating a new benchmark for our company, our customers and our community.”

– Synlait CEO Leon Clement

“Sustainability isn’t just a catch phrase for us. It’s what we do every day, all of us. We firmly believe that business can be a force for good in the world. B Corp™ certification and our on-going B Corp™ scorecard, is the ultimate measure of our environmental and social performance.”

– Synlait Director Sustainability and Brand Hamish Reid

“Customers’ expectations have changed. The customers and consumers that we target to work with are justified in demanding transparent and ethical supply chains. Synlait’s purpose, values and business practices reflect these changes. We are delivering on that.”

– Synlait Director Business Development & Sales            Martijn Jager

“Danone is a passionate member of the B Corp™ movement. B Corp™ companies are taking a significant step towards making sustainable business mainstream, and we are excited to see Synlait, a key supply partner for Danone Early Life Nutrition in New Zealand and Asia Pacific, publicly pledge to use its business as a force for good.
