Luke’s Lobster has been a Certified B Corp since January 2018. B Corp is a certification program with a rigorous assessment to prove your company achieves social and environmental good, not just profit. Our commitment to the wellbeing of our team, our community, and the environment makes us one of the only restaurant groups in the world that “walks the walk” enough to earn this certification.
Our B Corp ethos is woven through how we do business--elements like sourcing sustainable seafood from co-ops, buying 100% renewable energy, and giving our team growth opportunities and agency in guiding our business--as well as what we do outside our day to day--investing in scientific research on ocean acidification, helping lobstermen shrink their greenhouse gas emissions, or contributing food to a network of community fridges. We see B Corp as the embodiment of the “rising tide lifts all boats” mentality: when we work for the benefit of all our stakeholders and the environment rather than just our own profits, we all grow stronger and succeed together.
In 2021 we went through a three year recertification (no resting on your laurels!) and true to our goals, we increased our score over 30% from 80.1 to 104.5, reflecting our dedication to improving our impact despite the challenges of a global pandemic. As of our recertification date we became the highest scoring restaurant group and seafood company in the US!
