bimstore is incredibly proud to announce that Space Group has recently earned B Corporation certification.
Space Group, which incorporates bimstore, BIM.Technologies, SPACE Architects and Twinview, scored a 92.6 B Impact Score, following a rigorous assessment process.
At bimstore 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 delighted to join the B Corp community and to share our 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. We design with people and the planet in mind, and always have the communities our buildings serve at the heart of our design philosophy.
B Corp is a global movement designed to highlight those organisations that reach the highest standards of ethical business. The assessment measures and verifies organisational performance, accountability and transparency, including how it contributes to environmental sustainability, treats its employees and suppliers and its charitable giving. 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.
We believe that as a built environment business, we have a responsibility to operate in a way that prioritises the decarbonisation of industry alongside broader responsibilities to employees, customers and our community. Being a part of the B Corp community allows us to share ideas, learn from other initiatives and build on what we’ve achieved so far.
