Matrix Booking achieves B Corporation certification
Matrix Booking, a leading provider of workplace management solutions, has announced today its certification as a B Corporation (B Corp). This accomplishment reflects the company’s dedication to social and environmental performance beyond profit.
As an employee-owned company, Matrix Booking has long been passionate about supporting both its customers and the environment. Becoming a B Corporation marks a significant milestone in the company’s commitment to corporate responsibility.
Applicants for this certification must score a minimum of 80 points overall to certify. While the median score for businesses completing the B Impact Assessment is 50.9, Matrix Booking scored 106.1 overall, putting the company in the top 20% of B Corporations.
Karl Breeze, CEO at Matrix Booking emphasised the importance of this achievement: “Joining the global B Corp community is a crucial step for us in an industry that increasingly focuses on sustainability. We’re now a certified partner for organisations that care about making the world a better place. Our customers can be assured that they are teaming up with a company that’s committed to doing the right thing—looking after our planet, treating people well, and operating responsibly.”
Matrix Booking underwent a rigorous evaluation process, meeting the high standards set by B Lab, the not-for-profit organisation behind the B Corp movement. These standards cover five key impact areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers.
The B Corp certification reaffirms Matrix Booking’s commitment to its five key areas of focus:
- High-quality internal labour and reward policies: Ensuring employees are fairly compensated and rewarded.
- Strong supplier policies for fair trade: Partnering with suppliers who share the same commitment to fairness.
- Charitable giving and volunteer efforts: Engaging with the community through volunteer initiatives and charitable contributions.
- Reducing the carbon footprint: Implementing strategies to mitigate climate change and protect the planet and local communities.
- Assessing key business decisions for social responsibility: Making thoughtful decisions that prioritise social responsibility.
