From the volunteer work we do locally to the way we source ingredients globally, our commitment to the communities we touch is an important part of who we are. Globally, this means sourcing organic and sustainably grown food. For example, our cacao and palm oil are Rainforest Alliance Certified™. The Rainforest Alliance supports a healthy environment, promotes the well-being of workers and their communities, and strictly prohibits child labor.
We also created In Good Company® – an alliance of values-driven businesses working together for a shared purpose. We listen to people in local communities define their needs, and then volunteer out time to tackle projects focused on food, housing, and environment restoration.
Last but not least, CLIF® CORPS encourages Clif employees to volunteer their services in the community on company time (we totally crushed our 11,400 hour goal for 2016).The way we see it, cultivating community together makes us stronger as individuals and as a company. When we prioritize community daily, we see a world of difference.
Our Sustainability Journey
We’re working to reduce our ecological footprint in everything we do – from the field to the final products. This means that, in our day-to-day work, we’re thinking about more organics, less packaging, more planet-friendly transportation, less landfill and partners that keep us on our toes.
