We are inspired by the B Corp philosophy. A revolutionary movement starting from an original American model that is spreading rapidly. It currently involves thousands of companies in over 50 countries throughout the world.
As the first country in the world to follow in the steps of the US, Italy first provided a legal grounding for B Corps in 2016 with the Law of Stability and the introduction of Società Benefit (Benefit Companies), a new type of enterprise that, in addition to profit, pursues social and/or environmental benefit in a concrete, measurable manner, as endorsed by the company's bylaws.
What does being a Benefit Corp mean for Way2Global? It means evolving beyond our 30-year tradition of corporate social responsibility and innovation and embracing an exclusive model of change that effectively contributes toward creating a regenerated, sustainable, better world, in terms of economic, social and environmental development.
This business vision seamlessly blends with our work mission, described in our slogan, “Beyond borders for a better world”. For us at Way2Global, translating is about favoring inclusive understanding, establishing contact between different people and cultures from all parts of the world, transcending boundaries and overcoming linguistic barriers.
This vision has also been embraced by the United Nations General Assembly, which on 24 May 2017 officially recognized professional translation as an activity which helps to "unite nations and promote peace, understanding and sustainable development".
For us at Way2Global, a company with a majority of female employees that has always been committed to women’s empowerment, working to respond to the great challenges facing humanity also means striving to achieve SDG #5 of the UN’s 2030 Agenda on gender equality.
