OUR B CORP JOURNEY
In 2015, 7 years into our journey we made the commitment to become a B Corp after our Co-founder Jaron travelled to the USA & discovered the certification. We wanted to ensure the values that 4 Pines was founded on were not diluted as 4 Pines continued to grow. We had a very simple philosophy ‘do the right thing’. That includes taking care of our people and the communities we operate in and making choices that were light on the environment. In 2017 we celebrated becoming a B Corp
Since then, 4 Pines has been recognised as ‘B Corp - Best for the World’ in 2018, ’19, ’21 & ‘22 placing us in the top 5% of all B Corps around the world in the Environment Impact area.
We’re proud to be a part of a global community of over 6200 B Corps who are committed to using business as a force for good.
In the Aussie beer industry, we are joined by Stone & Wood & most recently Capital Brewing, Brick Lane Brewing, Heaps Normal & Young Henrys. Other businesses you might recognise include Ben & Jerry’s, Koala, T2, Patagonia, Keep Cup, Who Gives a Crap, Boody & Australian Ethical among many more!
