About Coopérative Mu

Mu is an eco-design agency that guides its clients to enhance their products and services’ eco-efficiency. For this purpose, Mu combines environmental engineering and design for a pragmatic, creative and applied approach to eco-design.

Since its creation as a cooperative until the experimentation of the “free bonuses” at the beginning of 2018, Mu has always wished to stay an exemplary and innovative company. Being a certified B Corp enables us to not only raise loudly and strongly our beliefs but also to join and support a community that uses business as a force for good. Furthermore, the requirements for being a certified B Corp challenged ourselves and allowed us to formalize our commitment through an action plan that the entire team helped to develop. Our objectives? To go even further in reducing our environmental footprint and in improving our impact on society!

What makes us a better company?
