Towards a Resilient and Sustainable Future
We work to the highest standards of environmental and social governance (ESG) to deliver our support in an ethical and transparent way.
Being a B Corp means working collaboratively to solve some of the world’s big problems – chief among them is, of course, Climate Change. It is also ensuring that we are contributing to a healthier planet, a great working environment and resilient, happier communities.
Why B Corp?
We are aligned to the B Corp mission of using business to be a force for good by:
- Being the change we seek in the world
- Conduct business as if people and place matters
- Through products, practice and profit aspire to do no harm and benefit all
- Understand that we are each dependent on another and so responsible for each other and future generations.
We were doing great things before B Corp – listening to our customers, encouraging our team to connect and support vulnerable communities and volunteer to protect the environment. But our mission is on a global journey and our commitment to achieving this is absolute – to do this we need to evolve our business and adopt a fully Earth and People-Aware culture.
We will be the leader for global environmental and climate insights to land and property transactions
To help our climate-challenged society make positive, sustainable and responsible land and property decisions.
B Corp - How we measure up
Total Score: 101.4
The threshold to achieve Certified B Corp is 80 and our score places us strongly in mid ranking at our first assessment. We are restless to develop in areas where we know we can contribute even further. Ever higher scores isn’t what this is about though – it’s about demonstrating our positive impact on communities, staff and the environment.
Our Climate Pledge
Climate Change is transforming and accelerating the environmental risks that affect our land, property and communities. We help property professionals make sense of how both the history of the land and its exposure to present and future threats including flooding, subsidence and contaminated land could impact on their clients’ enjoyment or value from their home or business. We make information more accessible to empower positive outcomes for our climate-challenged society.
As a business built on providing clarity on environmental and forward climate risks, we take our responsibility towards the planet very seriously. Our digital solutions and data integration with our clients means we have an almost zero paper footprint.
We also ensure that the expert advice we provide to our clients ensures that they can think positively and sustainably about their property transaction with a clear understanding of potential forward climate impacts.
B Corp Annual Impact Report 2022-2023
Becoming B Corp Certified has been less about developing new ways of working or new structures in the business. It’s more about the practicality of bringing together existing themes and activities in the business, formalising where necessary with policies in order to present a coherent and connected approach to people, society and the environment.
