Full Fibre Broadband ISP Connexin Joins the B-Corp Certified Club

Broadband ISP Connexin, which is aiming to deploy a new 10Gbps capable full fibre (FTTP) network across 500,000 premises in East Yorkshire and beyond (England), has announced that they’ve become the next UK alternative network to be certified as a “B Corporation” (i.e. meeting key social and environmental standards).

In case anybody is unfamiliar with what being certified as a B Corporation actually means. In short, this reflects for-profit companies that have committed to create a positive impact on society and the environment through their operations (i.e. businesses that want to do some good in the world, beyond simply making profit).

NOTE: Connexin is backed by an investment of £80m from PATRIZIA and currently has 25,000 customers (May 2023).

At present there are known to be over 8,000 Certified B Corporations in more than 93 countries around the world, including over 2,000 here in the UK (e.g. Ben & Jerry’s, Patagonia, Zen Internet, iDNET, Wildanet). The certification requires firms to meet strict standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Furqan Alamgir, CEO at Connexin, said (Fibre Provider):

“Becoming a B Corp is further validation of our sustainable practices and our ongoing commitment to create positive social impact. We have always lived by the principle that businesses should be a force for good, and we practice this belief through everything we do, from our business strategy, product sets, to our operational practices.”

Admittedly some may view all this as a form of virtue signalling, but on the other hand it’s nice to have practical business virtues worth signalling in the first place, as opposed to none. The company is currently committed to becoming Net Zero by 2040 (i.e. removing as many emissions as they produce).
