We are now a Certified B Corporation!

May 23, 2024

We are thrilled to announce that S+SA Architects has officially become a Certified B Corporation! This achievement marks a significant milestone for our practice. After a rigorous certification process, we are proud to join a global community of like-minded businesses dedicated to using business as a force for good.

What Does Being a B Corp Mean?
Verified by B Lab, the not-for-profit organisation behind the B Corp movement, this certification demonstrates that our practice meets high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. It underpins our commitment to goals beyond shareholder value, focusing on the broader impact of our work.

Our Journey to Certification
Over the past decade, S+SA Architects has grown and evolved, establishing a modern practice ethos that places people at the centre of its purpose. Our decision to pursue B Corp Certification was driven by our desire to align with other businesses that are committed to high standards of social and environmental impact.

The B Impact Assessment process involved significant self-reflection, evaluating our company’s direction and progress. We scrutinised how we articulate our ethos and align our staff and customers with our goals. This process reinforced that B Corp certification is just the start of a journey to empower our staff in various ways.

Looking Ahead
Becoming a B Corp reflects the main pillars that run through our business. Environmental responsibility is crucial in our sector, so we are continually reviewing and enhancing our carbon journey while supporting clients with their ESG commitments. Our staff and clients are core to our business, and we emphasise supporting one another to provide excellent service. This ethos extends beyond daily operations, helping staff achieve their life goals.

This significant milestone is just the beginning of our journey. As a B Corp, we are dedicated to ongoing improvement, empowering our team, collaborating with other forward-thinking organisations, and leveraging our expertise to create a more resilient built environment for future generations.

We look forward to sharing more about what it means to be a B Corp and our plans for the future. In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about the B Corp movement, you can visit the B Corporation website here.
