OUR PRESENT

An important goal has been reached: by Notary’s Deed on 8 April 2021, Arca Etichette S.p.A., Etifix srl and Arca Sleeves srl acquired the status of Benefit Corporation.

Being a Benefit Corporation gives evidence of “dual purpose” management which, in addition to profit, pursues specific objectives of common benefit, with the aim of generating a measurable positive impact for community, territory and all stakeholders, in a responsible, sustainable and transparent way.

It is an evolution that allows us to protect our corporate, social and environmental values, strengthening our capacity for growth in the coming years.

We believe that if the Value is not common, it’s not a Value.

Both represent the global movement of companies that want to use business as a positive force also for socio-environmental improvement. They have in common high standards of accountability and transparency, as well as missions aimed at solving the challenging problems of society.

But they do have some important differences.

Benefit Corporation status is a legal form, while B Corp is a certification. Companies can become Benefit Corporations only in countries which adopt it in their legislation, such as in Italy. The B Corp certification can be achieved, in any country, by companies able to demonstrate their corporate, environmental and social commitment, according to a complex certification scheme of the BLab international Body, the only accredited Body for certification.
