About Tweegs

The name “Tweegs” comes from the word “twigs”, which evokes the image of the “nest”: the most eco sustainable house in nature. It was borne out from the innovative idea of developing an online platform that promotes and simplifies eco-friendly methods and solutions about building renovation.

The actors of the platform are clients, professionals, artisans and producers, both senior and junior: the client chooses a nearby professional to fulfill his/her intervention; on the other hand the professional asks producers and local artisans for help. That is working in team (“integrated planning”), in order to reduce costs and time of implementation.

In this way Tweegs makes the renovation of existing building heritage easier, shortens the construction supply chain and makes different professional communities get in touch. Furthermore it creates new job opportunities addressed to people who deserve a chance and simplify the spreading of eco-friendly practices and solutions. The result is a fairer and more transparent construction sector for all.

Tweegs is a Mailwork Ecosostenibili srl Società Benefit product.

From the beginning, we have felt the strong will to put into practice some principles that we consider fundamental, like our deep respect towards the environment and the society, already present in our company guideline, applied in our team’s daily life and in our platform at total disposal of the community.

In spite of the difficulties due to being a new start-up (the first employee was hired in December 2015!), starting our certification as a B Corporation seemed to us like a natural choice, since we were sure we had what it takes to join the most eco-sustainable community in the world.

The Change We Seek®

Tweegs’ aim is to re-qualify the whole building market system, starting from its stakeholders, according to the principles of transparency, accountability and eco-sustainability. Profit is important, but only when it is considered as a measure of a fair and loyal work, and when it allows to have a positive impact on the society and the environment.

What makes us a better company?
