Engagement

At New Seasons Market,we’re all about showing up for our planet. That’s why environmental sustainability is one of the key pillars of our commitment as a neighborhood grocery store, deeply rooted in our values.

As a certified B Corp grocer, a major cornerstone of our sustainability mission is championing environmental stewardship. We do this through engagement with our staff, decision-makers, customers, and community members—and by partnering with local producers, farmers, ranchers, and nonprofits who share our commitment to a sustainable future. We also advocate for government policy changes that benefit our people, partners, local communities, and the planet. 

Here are just some examples of our sustainability engagement: 

Staff  

We often hear from staff that they chose to work for New Seasons because of our mission and focus on sustainability—whether that be waste reduction, companywide initiatives to reduce emissions, supporting sustainable food systems, or all the above! 

Our staff are some of the biggest advocates for the products we carry and engage customers with the stories of what makes the producers, farmers, and ranchers so exceptional. 

Outside our stores, our staff use their Lend-a-Hand benefit (8 hours of paid volunteer hours, annually) to volunteer with organizations that clean up neighborhoods, restore habitats, and provide food access and equity. 

Customers 

New Seasons customers care about what they eat and where their food comes from and actively engage in the stories behind the products they buy and feed to their families.  

This level of dedication and selection makes our customers advocates for building a more sustainable and resilient local food economy.

Community 

New Seasons is a proud member of the B Corp community. We carry over 50 fellow B Corp certified brands on our shelves and work within the local B Corp community on volunteer events and staffing events. As well as working in partnerships with other value-driven brands like Tillamook, Hopworks, and Stumptown Coffee to create awareness around the B Corp movement.  

New Seasons Market is also involved in multiple environmental-facing policy networks in Oregon—and as a member organization, we're advocating for environmental policies relevant to our business, including partnerships with the following:
