Commitment to Design for All
We collaborate with companies that commit to implement Design for All principles so benefiting their employees, customers and end users.
Design for All is the intervention in environments, products and services with the aim that, regardless of age, gender, capabilities or cultural background, everyone can participate in our society on an equal basis.
With the Design for All principles and from the Foundation we want to achieve that any user can access, use, and understand any part of the environment with as much independence as possible, and enjoy participating in the construction of our society in all types of activity i.e. economic, social, cultural, entertainment, and recreational.
Therefore, Design for All is fundamentally based on visibly putting into practice the respect for human diversity in environments, products and services.
