An Italian excellence, supported by Nativa, achieves the B Corp certification becoming an example in all Europe.
The Business School of Politecnico di Milano has obtained the B Corp certification, which ensures that a company operates according to the highest standards of social and environmental performance. This is excellent news for the whole country, where there are already more than one hundred B Corps and one of the highest growth rates in the world.
MIP was able to achieve this goal after a rigorous process of measurement – through the B Impact Assessment, developed by B Lab and used by over 120,000 companies worldwide – and improvement of its performance, during which it was supported by Nativa, evolution designer of sustainable and regenerative models.
The B Corp certification guarantees that the MIP operates by creating a positive impact towards people (employees, collaborators, partners and students), towards the community and the environment, thus generating well-being for all its stakeholders and adopting a sustainable business model.
But that’s not all. This commitment is excellent news for the world of tomorrow: for more than 40 years MIP has in fact been providing management training programs for graduates, professionals, companies and institutions, and from today it will do so by promoting the fundamental values of sustainable and regenerative business.
As Eric Ezechieli, co-founder of Nativa explains: “The collaboration with MIP Politecnico di Milano has been very fruitful and we are happy to have accelerated the path of an Italian excellence towards the achievement of the B Corp certification. The commitment of MIP in favor of people, society and the environment is a very strong signal for all business schools: the inclusion of paradigms related to sustainability within the corporate vision is in fact a fundamental skill for the decision makers of tomorrow“.
A signal, in short, to all other business schools and especially to Italian companies that invites them to review the purpose of business, from a more sustainable, fair and transparent point of view.
