Businesses need to future proof themselves in an ever-changing world. To me the answer is simple, businesses need to integrate sustainability within the core of their organisation. This is why I have chosen to work at Nexio Projects, and in my role have become an ambassador for B Corp. I joined Nexio Projects in August 2018, and throughout my years working here I have become more inspired by sustainable initiatives out there.
One of these great sustainable initiatives is B-Corp, a community of leaders driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The mission and values of B Corp align much with the mission and values we uphold at Nexio Projects. Therefore, in 2019 we decided to complete the B Impact Assessment ourselves. In 2020 we decided to more actively participate in the global movement. One of the most recent successes is that Nexio Projects became a partner of the B Corp Way, matching purpose-driven business with leading B Corp consultants.
For me, one of the key success areas of B Corp is the B Corp Community. The community stands for sharing knowledge, experience, and success stories, and in my eyes, this leads to great inspiration and motivation to drive change. The B Hive is a great tool to connect with other B Corp leaders worldwide and allows for collaboration with peers across the movement to amplify impact. Since sustainability is ever-changing, it is in my opinion good to talk with others about their experience and things they are struggling with. The community drives transparency and allows for a wide range of companies to do better, including yourself. This is what B Corp has taught me most, just start the conversation and see where collaboration can drive change, you do not have to reinvent the wheel yourself.
Together with my inspiring colleague Faye Lambley, we try to be part of the solution. Regarding B Corp we stimulate the increase of knowledge and awareness about its benefits, and what it can do for us. Moreover, with Nexio Projects being part of the B Corp Way we hope to broaden our mission of simplifying sustainability, making sure that companies will implement sustainability and drive meaningful change.
