Stonyfield Farm

Stonyfield Farm is the world's leading organic yogurt company. Its certified organic yogurt, smoothies, milk, cultured soy, frozen yogurt and ice cream are distributed nationally. The company advocates that healthy food can only come from a healthy planet. Its use of organic ingredients helps keep over 180,000 farm acres free of toxic, persistent pesticides and chemical fertilizers known to contaminate soil, drinking water and food.

To help reduce climate change, Stonyfield offsets all of the CO2 emissions generated from its facility energy use. The company also started a nonprofit called Climate Counts, which shows people how they can help fight climate change by the way they shop and invest. Stonyfield also donates 10 percent of its profits to efforts that help protect and restore the Earth. Stonyfield said it joined BICEP in 2009 because "with global warming now approaching dangerous levels, we want Congress to move expeditiously to control greenhouse gas emissions, and we recommend that it look less at economic models and more at economic reality – what the actual, on-the-ground experience of pro-active entities like the BICEP companies shows.”

Stonyfield Farms on BICEP

"Smart businesses have done a lot on their own to address climate change, but they can only do so much.  At this point, the rules need to change: there needs to be a price or tax on carbon. This incentive for genuine innovation needs to be firmly in place in order for the US to compete effectively in the global race to a clean energy economy."
