Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

Re-Vive concentrates on brownfield sites instead of unexplored area. The urban areas have enormous potential to transform themselves into sustainable communities. B Corp certification gives us an objective assessment of the actual realization of Re-Vive's beliefs and a tool to prove they makes things happen. It is also a way to reset the standards in a rather conservative business such as real estate development. The B-corp label gives Re-Vive a boost to outperform on their impact ambitions.

The mission of Re-Vive in these areas is to develop green spaces and living quarters with a social, demographic and functional mix. Through all projects Re-Vive stimulates neighbourhood participation , the use of public transport and biodiversity. Recycling of demolition materials, the reuse of rainwater, reducing waste and the use of sustainable materials are always included in the project plans. Historically, the legacy problems of such sites have stood in the way of redevelopment with the barrier of reclaiming contaminated sites and regenerating existing buildings proving too complex to resolve. The net result is these sites largely remain undeveloped.
