Doxee: A Benefit Corporation

B-Corp: what is Doxee committed to?

  • Explicitly state how the interest of shareholders is balanced with that of all other stakeholders 
  • Objectively and accurately measure impacts on the environment and society, communicating them honestly and transparently through the Impact Report, which complements the company’s traditional reporting 
  • Have internal governance that enables the company to position itself as a true vector of sustainability and innovation within the social and environmental context where it operates 

Over the course of its experience, Doxee SpA, has often implemented choices aimed at generating value and benefits for the wider community that it serves, ensuring consistency between business operations and everyday actions. This strong focus on issues related to sustainability and corporate social responsibility, which has always characterized Doxee, led the Management to the decision to transform Doxee into a Benefit Corporation.  

 Therefore, in conducting its business activity, in addition to the pursuit of profit, Doxee will also pursue some specific purposes for the common good, operating in a way that is responsible, sustainable, and transparent toward the environment and the community where it operates.
This transformation is the natural evolution of a path that began many years ago and represents the fruit of the company’s concrete efforts to achieve true sustainable development.

Indeed, we believe that social commitment is a prerogative that no entity should shy away from, especially for companies such as Doxee, which exist in a system of true interdependence and strong connection with the territory and the social and environmental system where it operates. 

For Doxee, ensuring the protection of the surrounding environment and the well-being of people also positions us for the opportunity to grow. 

The Company’s commitment to the issues of sustainability, social, and environmental well-being is expressed in many spheres of intervention, consistent with its core business and mission, each of which correspond to specific common benefit purposes.

Since achieving Benefit Corporation status, Doxee has included the pursuit of Purposes, in addition to sharing the profits of its economic activity, into its Articles of Incorporation. Through statutory amendment, the Company ensures that its operations are always conducted in a responsible, sustainable, and transparent manner towards people, communities, territories and the environment, cultural and social goods and activities, associations and organizations, and other stakeholders involved directly or indirectly by its economic activity, in order to achieve one or more common benefits.
