We're Australia's largest B Corp certified architectural practice.
The B in B Corp stands for “benefit,” and refers to businesses that benefit workers, the community and the environment. We have been a registered B Corp since 2016.
To gain certification, businesses must meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, to score at least 80 points out of a possible 200.
Being a B Corp is also about finding ways to ensure equal opportunities for all. From diversity of staff, ownership structures and engagement of third party suppliers.
To maintain B Corp status, businesses must re-certify every 3 years and improve on their score. In 2016 our score was 94.9 and in 2019 we re-certified at 117.4, placing us in the top 5% of Australian B Corps.
We became a B Corp to change the nature of business. For-profit firms often face pressure to forgo social and environmental goals in favour of maximising profits.
We believe businesses can be both profitable and ethical and we’re proof that it works.
