B Mis­sion Driven

True to O’Neill’s core val­ues, the mis­sion behind B Corp is cen­tered around long-term vision and con­tin­u­ous improve­ment for the ben­e­fit of all. As an indus­try so close­ly con­nect­ed to peo­ple and the plan­et, O’Neill fos­ters a com­pa­ny cul­ture that empow­ers a holis­tic approach to solv­ing busi­ness challenges –

Regen Reduced

B Green

From grape to bot­tle, O’Neill focus­es on reduc­ing the envi­ron­men­tal impact our prod­ucts car­ry at scale. We’ve decreased nat­ur­al gas usage in the dis­til­la­tion process, sourced recy­clable, light­weight bot­tles and pack­ag­ing mate­ri­als, and saved over 500,000 glass bot­tles from pro­cess­ing plants.

Addi­tion­al­ly, we’ve intro­duced a pro­gram that assists our grow­er part­ners in their jour­ney to get their sus­tain­abil­i­ty cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. To date, over 85% of our grow­ers are cer­ti­fied as part of our goal to pur­chase 100% of our grapes from cer­ti­fied sus­tain­able grow­ers by 2023.

B Regen­er­a­tive

We rely on our plan­et to pro­vide the fruits for our labor – as such, we remain stead­fast in inno­vat­ing and adopt­ing sys­tems that replen­ish the environment:

  • 40-acre Regen­er­a­tive Viti­cul­ture Study to learn ways of con­vert­ing farm­ing & wine­mak­ing prac­tices at scale.
  • Over 5,000 solar pan­els dri­ve a 740KW solar sys­tem that ful­ly pow­ers our bot­tling and ware­house operations
  • BioFil­tro BIDA Sys­tem recy­cles 80MM gal­lons of water each year for vine­yard irri­ga­tion and gen­er­ates 1,225 dry tons of worm cast­ings to boost the soil health of 500 acres of farmland.

B Diverse & Equitable

To ensure every­one receives an equi­table pour, we must address the chal­lenges and inequal­i­ties pre­vent­ing advance­ment and oppor­tu­ni­ties in our indus­try. Inter­nal­ly, 45% of our employ­ees are female, with 40 women serv­ing in lead­er­ship roles across depart­ments. Fur­ther ini­tia­tives include:

  • Charles Wood­son & O’Neill Fam­i­ly Wine Schol­ar­ship which aims to recruit and retain high-achiev­ing Black, Indige­nous, Peo­ple of Col­or (BIPOC) inter­est­ed in pur­su­ing a career in the wine industry.
  • Women of the Vine & Spir­its Gold Mem­ber, which pro­vides our employ­ees access to infor­ma­tive ses­sions on diver­si­ty, equi­ty, and inclu­sion to address the par­tic­u­lar chal­lenges that face women in the alco­hol bev­er­age industry.
LEAN

B LEAN

Since 2017, O’Neill has adopt­ed LEAN sys­tems to ensure con­sis­ten­cy in oper­a­tional out­put and prod­uct qual­i­ty. These prac­tices empow­er our pro­duc­tion team at all lev­els to iden­ti­fy oper­a­tional oppor­tu­ni­ties and work towards action­able solutions.

With the imple­men­ta­tion of LEAN man­u­fac­tur­ing, O’Neill has

  • Reduced pro­cess­ing errors by 80%
  • Increased cel­lar pro­duc­tion by 35% 
  • Improved cross-func­tion­al aware­ness and align­ment reduc­ing pro­cess­ing times and pro­duc­tion expectations
  • Improved employ­ee engage­ment to report oper­a­tional inefficiencies

B Peo­ple Focused

We have an ongo­ing respon­si­bil­i­ty to serve and uplift the employ­ees, com­mu­ni­ties, cus­tomers, and con­sumers inter­re­lat­ed with O’Neill. We have fol­lowed sus­tain­able sourc­ing and oper­a­tional prac­tices at the local and nation­al lev­els to sup­port pur­pose-dri­ven brands upheld by an unwa­ver­ing pil­lar of com­mu­ni­ty service.
