We are a Benefit Corporation

My Advisor has become a Benefit Company

Our Company has chosen a business orientation not only based on profit but also on sustainability and social responsibility.

A new statute

On 09.08.2021 My Advisor S.r.l. has been transformed into a Benefit Company: My Advisor S.r.l. Benefit company.

A process was thus launched which aims to pursue, in addition to profit objectives, a series of goals and objectives of common benefit, therefore aimed at obtaining a positive impact on society and the environment.

The company has chosen not to ignore the needs of the world we live in, opening its eyes to reality and embarking on a path to concretely change things, in the context of daily activities.

Becoming a Benefit Company meant making this commitment official, writing it “black and white” in our Statute, securing it and making it an integral part of the company beyond any evolution or transformation.

Purposes of common benefit

It was not difficult to identify our purposes of common benefit and we expressed them clearly and punctually with respect to each of the areas of action.

As a Benefit Company we have the obligation to publish the Impact Report annually, explaining our goals, our action plans and our objectives for the next year.

Thanks to the collaboration with CHOOOSE we are able to easily calculate, track and offset our carbon footprint and at the same time, we support high impact climate projects.

What are Benefit Corporations?

Benefit companies represent an evolution of the concept of company

The legal form of Benefit Company recognized in Italy since 2016, the second country in the world after the USA, has in its corporate purpose, in addition to the purpose of profit, the formal purpose of distributing shared value, which therefore becomes a statutory obligation.

Benefit companies, in fact, are those companies that voluntarily pursue, in the exercise of their business activity, in addition to the purpose of profit, also one or more purposes of common benefit, in a responsible, sustainable and transparent way. By common benefit we mean the pursuit of one or more positive effects (or reduction of negative effects) on people, communities, territory and the environment, cultural and social assets and activities, bodies, associations and other stakeholders.
