VISTA, CA – Dr. Bronner’s, family-owned maker of the top-selling natural brand of soap in North America, has published its first annual All-One Report to document the company’s commitment to corporate responsibility and environmental sustainability. The report expounds on the ways in which Dr. Bronner’s honors these two statements from founder Dr. E.H. Bronner’s Moral ABC that adorns the labels of the brand’s renowned products: “We are all brothers and sisters and we should take care of each other and Spaceship Earth!” and, “Constructive Capitalism is where you share the profits with the workers and the Earth from which you made it!”
Dr. Bronner’s All-One Report is available in print and digital format. To view the first annual All-One Report, visit: http://www.drbronner.com/media-center/allonereport2015.
“We created the All-One Report because we wanted to articulate the inspiration we draw from our family company’s deep roots in corporate social responsibility, and honor the diverse ways in which members of our staff express their passions through their work,” explains Kris Lin-Bronner, Strategic Advisor and CSR Manager for Dr. Bronner’s. “The stories, facts and figures in the 56-page report document our past accomplishments, our present challenges, as well as our hopes and commitments for the future. We intend to use this document as a tool to help us measure and achieve our social impact and sustainability goals in a more systematic way going forward.”
Structured after the 6 principles that guide Dr. Bronner’s All-One mission, the report’s chapters focus on the company’s commitment to: Work hard and grow, do right by customers, treat employees like family, be fair to suppliers, treat the earth like home, and give and give!
Dr. Bronner’s All-One Report includes a collection of writings by company leadership, staff, and non-profit partners, providing information on the brand’s progressive business practices and sustainability programs, its commitment to organic and fair trade sourcing, as well as outlining future sustainability goals. The report also details Dr. Bronner’s financial contributions to charitable and activist causes for 2014, including GMO labeling, drug policy reform, animal advocacy, and the re-commercialization of industrial hemp.
Dr. Bronner’s commitment to healthy and sustainable agriculture, corporate accountability, and consumers’ right to know is part of the company’s mission to put into practice the social and ecological principles that inform Dr. Bronner’s philosophy printed on the company’s iconic soap labels.
