At Cabot, we greatly value multiple bottom lines, healthy natural resources, human well-being and, by extension, our Cabot community.
We are committed to the principles of cooperation, and support our communities. Our co-operative's typical member is a multi-generational dairy farm family, a trend we endeavor to extend for a long time to come.
As a cooperative, the scope of our sustainability work is very broad - we recognize our impacts from cow-to-creamery-to-customer.
Our diagram depicts what we see as our scope, both on the Farm or cooperative side (cow-to-creamery) and on the Brand or commercial side (creamery-to-customer).
We are proud that our Cabot fans are interested in all of these elements as they choose to support our brand with their purchases.

Cabot Creamery Co-operative is the world’s first dairy co-operative to achieve B Corporation Certification, a validation of its attention to environmental and social impacts on stakeholders.
We are turning waste to energy from cow to consumer so that cows in our co-operative provide cream AND electricity for the Cabot butter we churn.
Many of our farmers are using a Sustainability Scorecard to measure what matters. Here are profiles of a handful of our dairy farmers with particular focus on how they ensure what more than just their pastures are green.
Cabot's Commitment to Sustainability
In our commitment to our community, to our Farmers, and to our consumers, Cabot Creamery Co-operative is committed to sustainability.
Context-based Sustainability (CBS) prescribes that, in addition to measuring our own impacts, we must compare our results to appropriate thresholds or standards of performance for those impacts.
