Environment and community
We steer our choices so as to ensure compatibility between economic initiative and environmental needs, taking an active role in creating a sustainable future.
Protecting the environment as an essential common good
We devote considerable attention to the environment and to the community in which we operate. Aware that sustainable economic development is only possible by preserving the environment around us, we are committed to projects and initiatives to reduce the environmental impacts of our activities.
In so doing, we seek to ensure that economic initiatives and environmental needs are fully compatible by pursuing goals such as:
- waste sorting;
- reduction of energy consumption;
- reduction of water consumption;
- paper sorting and reduction of waste paper;
- reduction of harmful gas emissions.
We also consider the development of policies in support of the communities with which we interact to be one of the key factors of business model. It is from this perspective that we make a priority of investing in the growth and development of the local communities, safeguarding and celebrating the best they have to offer and the most talented organisations.
