Agronutris has been awarded the B Corp™ label, which certifies that the company meets high standards in terms of environmental, social and societal impact. The company joins the exclusive community of more than 8,000 companies worldwide that are B Corp™ certified. This is the result of a several month-long in-depth audit carried out by the independent international NGO B Lab.
“We are delighted to welcome Agronutris to the B Corp movement. The development of a fairer and more sustainable food supply chain is a key issue for the future of the sector. Agronutris’ experience of shared governance is a model that we find particularly interesting: transparency, collaboration and interdependence are key values of the B Corp movement. By choosing to put people at the heart of its business, Agronutris is shaking things up!” said Augustin Boulot, CEO of B Lab France.
This certification confirms Agronutris’ strong commitment to the five "pillars" of environment, customers, employees, governance and communities; with a special mention for governance and the development of its employees.
“At Agronutris, we are trying to create a collective adventure that offers an environmentally virtuous circular economy solution. Together, we are building a collaborative culture based on shared governance and freedom, and aim to create relationships of transparency and trust with stakeholders. We believe that these are the ingredients for sustainable performance,” explained Mehdi Berrada, co-founder of Agronutris.
Since its creation, Agronutris has made sustainability the backbone of its entire venture. This holistic approach is based on a vision, a mission and values shared by all its employees. The "how" is just as important as the "why". People are at the heart of the company’s project, with particular highlights being paid to the development of its employees and the quality of its relationships with its partners.
