Breeze Technologies is now a certified social business

Hamburg. The Hamburg-based air quality management startup Breeze Technologies has been certified as a social business by The Grameen Creative Lab. “It is a huge honor for our organization to become certified as a social business. This certification underlines our impact in creating transparency about air pollution and supporting organizations world-wide in creating a healthier and more livable environment”, says Robert Heinecke, Breeze Technologies’ Founder and CEO.

The certification is based off the 7 principles of social business defined by Nobel Peace Laureate Prof. Mohammed Yunus:

  1. Our business objective is to overcome a global issue that threatens people and society; not profit maximization
  2. We have achieved financial and economic sustainability
  3. We do not pay dividends, because:
  4. We reinvest our profits to further grow our impact
  5. We are inclusive and environmentally conscious
  6. We offer working conditions where our team thrives and grows their potential
  7. We do all of the above with joy

The certification process was started thanks to Breeze Technologies’ participation in the ImpactXcelerate program, an initiative supporting the German social business ecosystem, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action and the European Union.
