Danone Dairy Ireland has won accreditation from B Labs, a US non-profit that promotes social and environmental responsibility, in recognition of its commitment to green causes and progressive labour practices.

The "B Corp" honour has gained traction in many parts of the world as part of the wider corporate social responsibility (CSR) movement but not yet in Ireland, where only one other company, energy efficiency firm UrbanVolt, has achieved B Corp status. The B stands for "beneficial".

As part of a three-year assessment, Danone Ireland said it provided evidence of its policies on waste disposal, use of energy and water, worker compensation, staff diversity and corporate transparency.
