Brewer Science, a global technology company has announced it is now a Certified B Corporation. As a B Corp, Brewer Science is committed to achieving the highest standards of corporate, social, and environmental performance, along with transparency and accountability.

The rigorous certification process recognizes for-profit companies who utilize business as a force for good through exacting standards for social and environmental performance. Brewer Science is the first company in the semiconductor industry to earn this certification and the seventh in the state of Missouri. Brewer Science joins a worldwide network of almost 4,000 Certified B Corps to date, from more than 60,000 applicants across 150 different industries and 74 countries, with one unifying goal: to redefine business success.

“Becoming a Certified B Corporation exemplifies our commitment to our mission to continuously evolve our global footprint to the benefit of our employees, community and customers, adding unexpected value throughout the world,” said Terry Brewer, CEO and Founder of Brewer Science. “Brewer Science has been externally reporting environmental, safety and health performance every year since 2006. Earning the prestigious B Corp Certification recognizes the company's and stakeholders' efforts in not only being a world-class manufacturer, but by having ethics and social responsibility in mind as we do it. As a Certified B Corporation, we have data and statistics ensuring we are ‘walking the talk' and achieving the highest standards of social responsibility.”

Brewer Science completed a meticulous assessment process conducted by B Lab, the governing body of B Corps, which examined over 170 factors while reviewing Brewer Science's customers and vendors, record of inclusion, community involvement, corporate governance and environmental impact. Key elements such as average employee tenure, charitable giving, energy savings plan, recycling policies, employee volunteer service and employee upward mobility are also analyzed. Brewer Science will hold B Corp certification for three years before submitting to a renewal process.

Environmental impact is one of the highest factors Brewer Science scored, valuing the company's efforts in its environmentally innovative manufacturing processes. “Brewer Science remains committed to protecting the environment, conserving resources, and providing a healthy, safe and secure workplace. Environmental responsibility is an ongoing priority at Brewer Science and we are targeting a carbon-neutral footprint by 2030,” said Dan Brewer, Chief Resources Officer at Brewer Science. “In addition to training and active employee engagement in proper disposal techniques, Brewer Science promotes an annual community collection program, partnering with waste disposal companies and volunteer crews to prevent community e-waste from becoming a part of a landfill.” You can learn more about Brewer Science's sustainability initiatives, including its six-year track record of earning GreenCircle Certification, by visiting its Going Green page.
