Peace Coffee was one of several Minnesota companies named to the 2018 ‘”Best for the World’ list among 2,400 so-called “Certified B” corporations chartered to do business for the common good, according to the annual assessment of B Lab, a nonprofit consultant and analyst.
The 240 winners set a “gold standard” for how business can be a force for good in communities around the world.
Peace Coffee made the list thanks to practices such as investing in low-income farmer cooperatives, forming long-term trading relationships, minimizing environmental impact by delivering coffee via bicycle, composting waste, and using intermodal transit.
The other Minnesota companies include Last Triumph, TheDataBank, CR-Building Performance Specialists, Globabl Gaming Initiative, Russell Herder and Sunrise Banks.
