Fiix is proud to announce that it has joined the B Corp movement and achieved its B Corporation certification.
B Corp is the highest standard for socially responsible business, with a rigorous certification process that looks at an organization’s social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. In joining the B Corp movement, Fiix—the leading provider of cloud-based maintenance and asset management software—joins ranks with powerhouses like Etsy, Patagonia, and Hootsuite who are working to create true social and environmental change.

The number of certified B Corps has grown, from 536 certified organizations worldwide in 2012 to 2240 in 2017, as like-minded businesses choose to pursue the exacting certification. The movement has seen success because of its emphasis on shared, durable prosperity for all.
