Accessibility now: a rewarding commitment
The Mediobanca website has won the “Web Excellence 2021” prize awarded by Siteimprove for companies that stand out for the quality and accessibility of their websites in accordance with the guidelines of the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the accessibility requirements for products and services (otherwise known as the European Accessibility Act).
At Mediobanca we started from a statistic: 20% of the global population has special characteristics that make it difficult or prevent them from using the internet effectively. Understanding this drove us to act ahead of the 2025 deadline, because accessibility is key to inclusion, a central theme in our commitment to sustainability.
This important recognition is testimony to Mediobanca’s commitment to accessibility, which is no longer merely a technical issue, but a genuine requirement for effective and valuable communication.
