B Corp

We are pleased to announce we have earned B Corp™ Certification following a rigorous social and environmental impact evaluation, a rarity for technology and service-led providers. The certification places us amongst some of the most respected and loved brands globally, including Patagonia, Divine Chocolate, Octopus Energy, and Innocent Smoothies.

Businesses certified by B Lab™, a third-party non-profit, are leaders in the global movement for an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economy. B Lab measures a company's entire social and environmental impact and attaining B Corp Certification means a company meets high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Founded in 2006, Connexin offers services across three areas: broadband, smart solutions, and digital training. Our mission is to connect the real world to the digital world to improve the way people live. The commitment to use technology to create positive and long-lasting social impact is rooted firmly in our DNA.

Our smart water metering services enable our utility customers including Essex and Suffolk Water, Yorkshire Water, and Severn Trent Water to rapidly detect water leaks across the UK. This helps reduce water wastage and carbon emissions from manual meter readings. Working with city councils, Connexin’s Smart City solutions help to build more efficient, sustainable, and better-connected communities.

Our education and training division, Connexin Academy, consistently demonstrates dedication to narrowing the growing gap in tech skills across the nation. By offering training bootcamps ranging from Cybersecurity, IT Skills, and Advanced Fibre Engineering, Connexin Academy upskills individuals and businesses with a constantly updated curriculum and new courses for emerging markets.

Through our Connexin Cares scheme, we donate up to £20 to a local charity for each new customer that signs up to its fast full-fibre broadband deals.

“Becoming a B Corp is further validation of our sustainable practices and our ongoing commitment to creating 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, and product sets, to our operational practices. We are honoured to become part of a global community that shares this belief” says Furqan Alamgir, CEO at Connexin.

The B Corp Certification follows in line with Connexin’s commitment to become Net Zero by 2040 and achieving a 5-Star ESG rating awarded by the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB).
