In July 2020, after over two decades of turning spaces into places, Planit-IE became a certified B Corp, making a formal commitment to creating a more inclusive and sustainable economy through our work.
We are delighted to be supporting work by the charity Embassy, to help address homelessness in central Manchester. Embassy has adopted a pioneering approach to design a self-contained village. They plan to create 40 high quality modular homes from repurposed shipping containers, to deliver a safe and welcoming community for homeless and vulnerable men. This will provide them with their own accommodation and a supportive environment, to help remove the significant barriers that many will face during the transition from life on the streets to gaining that stable foothold in our communities.
As a recently certified B Corp we have joined a community of leaders, committed to using our business as a force for good. We consequently consider the environment in every decision we make. Our aim is to further show our commitment to the environment in all aspects of work we undertake.
We were proudly able to announce our position as a newly certified B Corp organisation in August 2020, formalising our commitment to putting people and planet above profit and using business for good. What we didn’t reveal at the time is the exciting news that the Old Bank NOMA – managed by creative studio Standard Practice – has become Manchester’s first B Corp Hub, reflecting the changing world of business and responding to the requirements of the city.
We are proud to announce that Planit-IE is officially part of the B Corp UK community!
After transforming spaces into places for people for over two decades, we’re excited to announce that we have become a Certified B Corporation, making a formal commitment to creating a more inclusive and sustainable economy through our work.
