At BIM.Technologies and across the wider Space Group family, we are thrilled with the news and recognition of our commitment to people and the planet. We are incredibly proud to be a part of this like-minded community, sharing a joint mission of utilising business as a force for good.
Rob Charlton, Chief Executive at Space Group, commented:
“Space Group and our people have always cared deeply about the impact the built environment has on the people who live, visit, learn, work and play in the spaces we create and transform.”
Certified B corporations meet the highest verified social and environmental performance standard, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. Household names, including Body Shop, Patagonia and Innocent Drinks, are among those to have been awarded B Corp status.
Rob Charlton added:
“From our carbon reduction strategies - and the technologies we’ve developed to support the race to Net Zero - to our caring, accountable culture - B Corp status felt like a natural progression. It has allowed us to ‘officially’ measure and evidence our best practice around sustainability, environmental management and ethical design, which have always been part of the Space Group DNA. B Corp is rigorous and evidence-based - there is no easy way to get through the assessment process, and it holds great credibility. We’re very proud to have achieved B Corp status, and I would like to say thank you in particular to our dedicated team who believe in our purpose and continually push the boundaries of what is possible.”
