As we wrap up Earth Week at WhiteWave, we are excited to share the below Sustainability Infographic for 2015 that highlights many of the successes we have achieved in the last year. For example, we established a path to reach our goal of sourcing 100% sustainable cocoa powder across North American brands, an accomplishment we are incredibly proud of. We also scored a 99B from the CDP on our climate disclosure, earning us a place on the Climate Disclosure Project leadership index. We are constantly working towards our goal of changing the way the world eats for the better® and the this infographic is a true testament to this commitment.

Check out the FINAL 2015Infographic to see our work and progress in other sustainability focus areas.

In an effort to continue our focus on overall health and wellness at WhiteWave we had Brendan Brazier, Cofounder of Vega, and Bestselling Author of the Thrive Book Series, along with Jenn Rendazzo, Registered Dietician, present on plant-based nutrition to employees.  Those who participated in the event earlier this week were given a signed copy of Brendan’s book and spoke with Jenn on how to make simple lifestyle changes to encourage wellness.

In addition to the above employees were given the opportunity to learn more about fitness, organic gardening, WhiteWave benefits and much more.
