PRP awarded BCorp certification

PRP is proud to announce that they have been awarded BCorporation certification, joining the distinguished list of companies in the built environment to achieve this milestone. Certified B Corporations are businesses that are meeting high standards of performance, accountability and transparency on a variety of factors and are rewarded by B Lab with the prestigious BCorp Certification.

PRP is known for having designed and delivered high quality buildings and places that enrich the lives of users and their communities since 1963. From regenerating inner-city estates and masterplanning new neighbourhoods to designing commercial and industrial buildings or homes for older people, our ethos is always the same – intelligent, responsive and sustainable solutions, delivered with professionalism and total integrity.

By achieving BCorp certification PRP has demonstrated a high level of social, environmental and legal commitments, benchmarking their progress against other companies in the sector and identifying growth opportunities for the future. PRP was evaluated in five key areas: governance, workers, customers, environment, community.

Scoring highest in the ‘workers’ and ‘customers’ categories, PRP continue to show their commitment to creating a positive and ethical work environment and going above and beyond when serving their clients.

Andrew Mellor, Partner at PRP, said:

“PRP has been assessed by B Lab to have high ethical and environmental standards as well as providing many social benefits for our employees and in the wider communities in which we work. Gaining certification is an important step but being a BCorporation requires continued review so we will not be stopping, we are committed to ensuring that we continue to improve and we will work hard to do so.”
