WWG actively trains and employs individuals with different skill sets, effectively alleviating poverty and generating jobs in developing countries.
Furthermore, WWG is committed to preparing a social balance sheet that transparently reports the activities carried out and the impacts generated on society and the environment. This will allow the effectiveness of the policies adopted to be evaluated and any areas for improvement to be identified.
WWG’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its support for various social and environmental initiatives, such as supporting associations that aim to improve exchanges and interactions between people, communities, and peoples with the aim of helping the poorest. WWG is also committed to creating applications that facilitate the recovery of food and its free distribution, to fight against social exclusion and reduce food waste.
WWG has also made charitable donations to various organizations, including an orphanage in Poland and Ukraine, Caritas which helps people in need, the pediatric oncology department in Monza, and the Arca Comunità Il Chicco, an organization dedicated to assisting and caring for individuals with cognitive disabilities.
WWG is also collaborating with the Machiavelli Institute in Pioltello and the Italian Association OKR to help students become protagonists of a personal life project and acquire a greater awareness of their potential, through the project “Let’s learn to use the OKR.” Additionally, WWG is working to have the least negative impact on the environment, the economy, and the community, through the implementation of socially responsible policies and the use of environmentally sustainable resources. It welcomes customers by giving them a tree, as a gesture of gratitude and love for the planet and for ourselves.
WWG is also contributing directly to achieving SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) through its participation in different projects and initiatives, such as P.E.A.S., and cooperating with green partners such as 17tons. The company also supports various charitable initiatives, such as providing assistance to the victims of earthquakes in Turkey.
In conclusion, by becoming a benefit corporation, WWG is taking a significant step towards a sustainable future for everyone. The integration of social and environmental considerations into its business model shows WWG’s commitment to making a positive impact on the world.
