People who work in our company every day are involved in the widest range of activities. At any level and in any role, they have to: make decisions; interact with clients, suppliers and other institutional interlocutors; ensure production quality; and much more.
Whatever activity is being performed, the daily commitment is guided by the code of ethics adopted by the company many years ago. It is made up of true guidelines which underline our common desire to do our best at creating value which is not only economical but also environmental and social, creating synergies with the local area and supporting valuable causes.
The code of ethics, which is shared with our suppliers as well, underlines specific commitments to transparency and probity, going beyond specific legal requirements. It also highlights attention for safety, that of workers and of products, as being one of the company’s highest priorities.
These guidelines then translate, year after year, into concrete initiatives: from numerous training courses to specific incentives for the adoption of virtuous practices, including an approach which shows respect for the environment.
Support for deserving initiatives fits well with the commitments we have made in our code of ethics; in this sense we gladly support two important organisations: the Francesca Rava Foundation and ABIO Italia. (Both are “ONLUS”, or socially useful not-for profit organisations.)
Fondazione Francesca Rava ONLUS
This organisation works to provide support during infancy where there are situations of economic hardship or strain in Italy and elsewhere in the world. The Fondazione Francesca Rava works through various forms of volunteer action, child sponsorship and educational projects focusing on the delicate topic of children’s rights.
The Italian branch of an international humanitarian organisation, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH), the Fondazione Francesca Rava has defined its values as being independence (from political or religious influences), sincerity, concreteness, financial transparency and efficiency. They have reached a point where they contain management costs for their various activities within the threshold of 5%, so as to allocate 95% of received donations to situations of emergency and risk, which the organisation finds itself facing on a daily basis.
To support the activities of the Fondazione Francesca Rava, please find the necessary information on their official website.
ABIO Italia ONLUS
Begun in 2006, the Foundation coordinates the activities of the ABIO Movement, which since 1978 has endeavoured to supply emotional and psychological support to children in hospital. ABIO got started in fact with the goal of transforming the hospital and the experience of a hospital stay into a moment and a place wherein a suffering child or adolescent and their family can feel welcomed, accompanied and heard.
Thanks to the efforts of ABIO Italia ONLUS and its volunteers, even the internal spaces of hospitals get rethought and transformed so as to be “child-sized” and attuned to children’s specific needs.
Whoever would like to contribute to ABIO Italia ONLUS or support their activities can find the necessary information on the official site of the Foundation.
