Danone director: Being ‘good’ is not good enough for post-Covid businesses

Danone factory

Like so many other companies across the UK, at Danone, we have been working hard to get urgent help to people affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Although the emergency response to the crisis might be over, now is not the time to stop. Businesses must continue to step up and play an integral part in building a more equitable and sustainable future. To build back better, leaders should consider becoming a B Corp.

Danone is built on the concept that for the company to thrive the rest of the world must be thriving too, and the past 14 weeks have certainly reinforced the critical link between business and our communities.

As with other companies, employees across Danone have been playing their part to get critical help to people in greatest need since the crisis began. This includes more than doubling our supply of medical food to the NHS to support patients, getting immediate donations to grassroots charities across the UK and distributing food to food banks and other community causes.
