Published Tue 12 Dec 2023

We are thrilled to share that Hadley Property Group has officially become a B Corporation (B-Corp), joining a fantastic community of companies dedicated to redefining business with purpose beyond just profits

Certified by B Lab UK, the non-profit driving the B Corp movement, we've met rigorous social and environmental standards, showcasing our commitment to more than just shareholder profit. Since 2003, Hadley has been all about delivering social value and operating sustainably across our three key pillars: protecting the planet, stimulating economies, and empowering communities. In 2023, we're still on track, tackling social, economic, and environmental challenges in the UK development and construction industry as part of the global Race to Zero.

The B Corp certification addresses the entirety of a business’s operations and covers five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. The certification process is rigorous, with applicants required to reach a benchmark score of over 80 while providing evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices relating to energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity, and corporate transparency. We've not only met the benchmark but gone far beyond it, excelling to rank in the top 5% of businesses across all impact areas.

Being part of the global B Corp community of 7,000 businesses, and in the UK with over 1,500 companies, including names like The Guardian, innocent, Patagonia, The Body Shop, and Abel & Cole, is an honour. Recent attention on the real estate sector makes Hadley Property Group’s B Corp certification a notable step and signals a shift towards greater accountability and transparency in the industry.
