WHY WE ARE SUSTAINABLE
Our mission is to make affordable, organic, healthy, sustainable soft drinks that are good for you and the planet.
We create organic, living drinks that add life and vitalise everyone that drinks them.
In September 2020 we were proud to be the first kombucha company in Europe to certify as a B Corp!
What is B Corp?
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
“We were founded on the vision that ethical, living products like Kombucha can make a massive difference to people all over the world. We really care about having a positive impact socially, environmentally and economically and have this ecosystem of impact central to our vision, purpose and execution. We don’t shy away from difficult to tackle challenges and instead come together as a team to tenaciously find solutions that benefit everyone. We really care and for me this is rare.”
People and Sustainability @ Equinox
80% of our employees live in the area local to our brewery
Equinox Kombucha was founded in the Calder Valley, West Yorkshire and this is where we are going to stay.
80% of our employees live in the area local to our brewery. Our community there is vital to our wellbeing.
Our community helps us to evolve our products and services based on the highest need and biggest opportunity to make a real and lasting difference.
It important to us that as many people as possible get to try and enjoy a healthy, living, soft drink. That’s why we are committed to produce our drinks at reasonable price.
Everything we do has a social and environmental opportunity. By giving back and helping the communities where we have our factories, we can help them to prosper in the future.
Our Equinox culture is important to us, we respect and help each other to become better and stronger.
We are still learning, we don’t always get it right the first time. But as we grow we are evolving, innovating and improving our company, manufacturing process and our products.
