Italgraniti Group

We are a B Corp!

Italgraniti Group, a ceramic tile group founded and led since 1975 by the Giacobazzi family, has been a Benefit Corporation since 2023 and joins now the small number of Italian B Corporations.

Italgraniti Group has successfully completed the process required to obtain B Corp certification, awarded by B Lab, a US nonprofit organisation that since 2006 has been quantifying a company’s environmental and social performance with the same rigour as its economic results.

A family company since 1975, Italgraniti Group has long pursued strategies that combine innovation and sustainability, aiming to increase the positive impact on people, the territory and the environment by acting responsibly, sustainably and transparently.

Strengthened by this approach, the Group has shown to qualify as a B Corp; it thus takes part in the global movement that sees business as a positive force not only for the economy but also for the well-being of people and the planet, and that promotes the transition to an inclusive, fair and regenerative economic model. CB Lab certified companies act according to the highest social and environmental standards: the 80-score threshold required to become a B Corp indicates the break-even point between what a company takes from the environment and society and what it gives back.

“We are very proud of this achievement,” says Elisa Giacobazzi, CEO of the Group. “This certification represents a milestone in the evolutionary journey of Italgraniti Group. After the change of company statute to a Benefit Corporation, being a B Corp reinforces our conviction that you cannot do business without complementing economic profit with the wellbeing of people and communities and the protection of land and the environment’.

In its first sustainability report, Italgraniti Group presents its achievements in the year 2021 on the economic, social and environmental aspects. Data confirm the extent to which sustainability has become an integral part of Italgraniti Group production and management processes and follows the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
