Responsibility and transparency

What are Benefit Corporations

Benefit Corporations are the output of a new business legal form introduced in Italy in 2016. While pursuing profit-making, these companies have voluntarily decided to pursue one or more purposes of common benefit.

Fortunately, more and more companies are choosing to become Benefit Corporation, joining a movement of companies that believes in a necessary change inspired by equality and sustainability. These companies are aware that it is nowadays essential to introduce into the world more wealth than the amount we consume.
