The Legality Rating

The Legality Rating has been established in order to reward Companies in good economic and reputational stance. It was established in 2012 with the Italian Legislative Decree “Cresci Italia“, with the specific objective of compensating the costs sustained by companies operating with honesty in markets saturated by criminal organizations or corruption.
