Benefit Corporation


“The true change occurs when people change the way they think.” (Albert Einstein)

Benefit Corporation is characterized by its dual purpose, recognized by both shareholders and stakeholders:

  • The profit purpose, which involves sharing profits
  • The common benefit purpose, aimed at achieving a positive impact on the environment and civil society by operating sustainably and transparently.
Benefit Corporation is a traditional profit company with additional obligations that commit management and shareholders to higher standards of purpose, sustainability, responsibility, and transparency.
  • Purpose : Benefit corporations commit to creating a positive impact on society and the biosphere, meaning shared value, in addition to generating profits. Sustainability is an integral part of their business model, and Benefit corporations create conditions favorable to social and environmental prosperity, both now and in the future.
  • Responsibility : Benefit corporations commit to considering the impact of their business on society and the environment in order to create sustainable long-term value for all stakeholders.
  • Transparency: Benefit corporations are required to annually communicate and report, according to third-party standards, the results achieved, their progress, and future commitments towards achieving social and environmental impact, to both shareholders and the general public.
The Benefit Corporation is an evolution of the very concept of a company A Benefit Corporation is a legal entity that establishes a strong foundation for long-term mission alignment and the creation of shared value. It represents a positive transformation of the prevailing models of for-profit businesses, making them more suited to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st-century markets.
