We promote awareness-raising for issues that are important for the company, such as the respect for the environment and for people's health and safety, while informing on the risks related to the activities and on the best practices to remove these risks.
We work with the products of the land, which is why we are more aware than other companies of how important it is to protect the environment, so that what we get is not contaminated or harmful for the health of other people. We try to involve all our stakeholders in this goal: this must be a rule of conduct that guides everybody's daily behavior.
We have implemented an environmental management scheme that helps us keep the impact of our production on the environment under control, in order to elaborate and implement corrective action to minimize the risks of contamination.
Most of our energy supply is from renewable sources. The installation of photovoltaic panels allowed us to reduce harmful gas emissions in the atmosphere significantly.
Our steps are only a small contribution to the well-being of the community: if we choose to work hard today, it is in order to lay the foundations of a better future, grow in a responsible and sustainable way and preserve the resources for future generations.
