LARKSPUR, Calif., June 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/-- O'Neill Vintners & Distillers, one of the fastest-growing wineries in California, announces today its B Corp Certification, which distinguishes companies that meet high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. This certification comes less than a year after O'Neill earned Wine Institute's Green Medal Leader Award in 2021.
O'Neill has excelled in meeting each standard as a leader in social and environmental preservation and joins over 5,000 companies across 80 countries and 155 industries in earning B Corp status. "Receiving B Corp certification is a testament to our team's persistent focus on continuous improvement to lead positive change in the industry. This is a profound achievement for a company of our size in an industry so closely connected to people and the planet," says Founder and CEO Jeff O'Neill. "We are honored to receive this distinction and become part of the B Corp community."
O'Neill is the 10th largest wine company in the US and now the largest B Corp Certified winery in North America. Caine Thompson, Sustainability Lead for O'Neill Vintners & Distillers notes, "B Corp Certification was a natural progression for O'Neill, who has been striving for environmental and social responsibility since its founding in 2004."
