Certified B Corporation

Emilia-Romagna, Italy

Certified Since

May 2016


Service with Minor Environmental Footprint

Operates In



Born in 1988, EXE.IT has been always an IT company (where IT means Information Technology but also Italy.) In 2015 EXE.IT built an own DataCenter, that is completely CO2-emissions-free. In January of 2016 EXE obtained the GREEN CLOUD CERTIFIED certification. In April 2016 EXE became an SB (Società Benefit) and in May of 2016 EXE became a Certified B Corp. The innovative model of business is: if a (customer) company moves part or all of its information technology in the true green DataCenter, this company receives a TRUE CERTIFICATE that certifies this environmental attention. (One of the biggest concerns of the EU, but also in USA, Canada and Australia, about CO2 emissions is given by DataCenters). So this can apply for Hosting, Housing, and above all SaaS, IaaS, PaaS and Full IT Outsourcing. Of course EXE.IT seeks to spread this message: DataCenters are the worst energy consumers. BUT zero-CO2-emissions DataCenter CAN(!) exist, can be sustainable and can be profitable. EXE.IT is THE evidence that this is possible.
