The best B Corp Office Providers
B Corporation is a business certification that recognises the positive impact that an organisation has on society as a whole. B Corps are required to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. To become a B Corp, companies must score a minimum of 80 points on the B Impact Assessment™ tool. Points are earned through factors like fair pay for employees, positive impact on the environment and society, transparent governance and business practices, and more.

In addition to meeting B Lab's standards for social and environmental performance, B Corps must recertify every three years and report their impact annually through B Impact Assessments. These reports measure impact across five areas: people (living wages), planet (environmental sustainability), public benefit (impact on communities), products & services (products that matter), and profits/returns (economic prosperity).

Many businesses are now actively looking to work from a B Corp-certified workspace. The environmental efficiency of a B Corps office is scored within the Assessment, so it’s important for these organisations to consider factors like this when choosing workspace. But more than that, B Corp offices are designed to be more than just a place to work: they're designed to be a community space where people come together to create positive change in the world. 

In this post, we explore some of the flexible workspace providers that have taken the leap to become B Corp certified:


From day one, X+Why has been driven by sustainability and the environment. They have done a lot to draw attention to the importance of sustainability in the workplace. It markets itself as ‘Flexible workspace for purpose-driven businesses.’

X+Why B Corp

Not only are they B Corp-certified themselves, but they encourage their tenants to get the certification also, through their ‘Mission Lit Programme’, they support members on their journey to becoming more responsible businesses and then recognise and reward them for their efforts. 

They design their spaces to be as sustainable as possible - from the chairs to the lighting, and even their living roofs.

X+Why have a growing number of offices in London and Birmingham - with new offices popping up across the country. Two of our favourites are People’s Mission Hall (residents get 5-7 B Corp points just by being in the building) in Aldgate and The Fulwood in Chancery Lane. 

If you are interested in an office space at any of the X+Why spaces - then let us know your requirements here.
