We’re now B Corp certified!
We believe property management can be a force for good. That’s why we make buildings work, not just for profit, but for people and planet too. MAPP. Certified B Corp July 2021.
MAPP are proud to have become a B Corporation. This accreditation recognises that we meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
It follows a rigorous, year-long process which placed MAPP’s entire business operations under close scrutiny, covering the five key areas of governance, workers, community, environment and customers.
An early B Corp adopter, we have formally pledged to make buildings work, not just for profit, but for people and planet too. We will continue to hold ourselves accountable, this certification is just the beginning. MAPP will continue to be required to demonstrate consistent socially and environmentally sustainable practices are ingrained across our business.
What B Corp means to MAPP
We have always said we put ‘people first’, that we are ‘accountable’ and we are ‘authentic’ that we are managing commercial property differently. Now we can prove it.
Nigel Mapp, CEO, on the topic of B Corp said:
“B Corp provides us with the formal framework to continue to push the boundaries with how we deliver, measure and assess the impact we have with our people, partners, the community and environment, while empowering us to build on our progress and do even better.”
The B Corp movement
We are joining 4,000+ global businesses that believe in balancing people and planet with profit. Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and non-profits alone. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. It is a fast growing global movement, including leading ethical brands Ben & Jerry’s, Ella’s Kitchen, Innocent, the Body Shop and The Guardian. In the UK property sector, other B Corps are Igloo Regeneration, Newcore Capital Management and FORE Partnership.
