Archus' commitment to communities recognised

A healthcare infrastructure consultancy has solidified its commitment to creating positive social and environmental impacts in the communities it works with, by becoming a certified UK B Corporation (B-Corp). 

Archus has been certified by B Lab, the not-for-profit behind the B-Corp movement, after meeting rigorous social and environmental standards which represent its commitment to goals outside of shareholder profit.

It joins a global community of over 1,500 B-Corps in the UK and 7,000 worldwide. 

Shane Dineen, Managing Director of Archus, said the firm was incredibly proud to have achieved B-Corp certification "with an excellent B-Impact score which is reflective of the importance we place on maintaining ethical business practices".

"At Archus, we have always believed that creating sustainable healthcare infrastructure is about far more than just physical structures," he said.

"This milestone reinforces our unwavering commitment to social and environmental stewardship, not only through the work we undertake within the healthcare sector but for the communities we operate in.”

Archus is committed to providing innovative solutions to healthcare organisations to help them in improving efficiency, sustainability, patient care and health outcomes.

The company's journey to B-Corp certification involved a detailed assessment of its operations, including its impact on workers, customers, community, and the environment and a legally embedded commitment to purpose beyond profit.

While the certification process requires a benchmark score of over 80 to pass, Archus achieved a score of 98.5. 

Chris Turner, Executive Director of B Lab UK, said “Being able to welcome Archus to the B-Corp community is hugely exciting.

"Their commitment to doing business differently will be an inspiration to others and really help spread the idea that we can redefine success in business to be as much about people and planet as it is about profit”.
