We generate a
environmental impact.

We are a B Corp.

We conform to the highest standards of transparency and responsibility and we’re committed to generating a positive impact for all stakeholders.
In 2016 we obtained B Corp certification, and we’re proud to be the first in our sector worldwide. This means that we create value without damaging other value, not only for the good of our company but for the good of everyone. Being a B Corp implies the commitment to satisfying the highest standards in the world for social and environmental performance, but also for transparency and accounting. This is a worldwide movement of people who generate a positive impact through business on all stakeholders – clients, suppliers, collaborators, environment and local community.

Together for the world.

Business at the service of the common good: that’s why we chose to join the B Corp network. B Corp companies show that it’s possible to do good with business, and we’ve made a commitment towards the evolution of our way of working, facing our economic, social and environmental challenges. We aim to change from an economic system based on profits for few to one that benefits everyone, from the concentration of wealth and power to the guarantee of fairness, from extraction to regeneration, from prioritizing individualism to embracing interdependence. These choices led to the reconfirmation of our B Corp certification in 2020 with 106.5 points – an extraordinary result considering that the B Impact Assessment was done by more than 100,000 companies worldwide, but only 4862 of these obtained more than 80 points.

We’ve been also a Benefit Company since 2016. With our customary rigor and care we’ve changed our legal status to reinforce our commitment to having a positive impact, protecting it from future changes of management and ownership.

Benefit Companies: 
how are they different?

If the only objective of traditional companies is to distribute dividends to their shareholders, Benefit companies include in their company purpose not only making a profit but also having a positive impact on society and the environment, leading to real sustainability in the economic, environmental and social areas.

In short, a Benefit company:
- makes an explicit commitment starting from the company purpose;
- measures its results in terms of positive impact on society and the environment, with the same thoroughness used for economic and financial results.

The 5 impact areas.

As a B Corp we are committed to a progressive course of action and to generating a positive impact in five areas that are assessed for the certification: governance, workers, local community, environment and clients.

1. Governance

The general company mission, ethics, responsibility and transparency are assessed. 
As a Benefit Company we’re legally bound to pursue, together with profit, the aims for the common good written in the statute.

5. Clients

This area examines the kind of impact our services have and the benefits for the community served.
Every year we publish an impact report, where we describe our commitment to generating value through our work.
Being honest and transparent in all our words and actions is essential for us.
