We are excited to announce our recent accreditation as a Certified B Corp.
B Corporation is a global community of for-profit leaders who pledge to use business as a force for good, a philosophy that seeks to pursue stakeholder – not just shareholder – value.
Administered by not-for-profit B Lab, the certification is awarded to businesses that voluntarily meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, balancing profit and purpose.
From our Managing Director, Michael McCormack:
“We’ve always been a purpose-driven business and having B Corp certification has applied a whole new layer of accountability and forward thinking to each decision we make. We’re doing this because it is important to us, but also because it is undeniably what homebuyers want”.
