Sustainability Craftsmanship Innovation
An integrated project
commitment, respect, tradition
The past and the present of the Company can be portrayed in a desire of absolute excellence in the creation and production of artisanal goods. This objective is achieved, day after day, through a constant search for the highest levels in terms of product, service, innovation and conservation of experiences, to achieve the best quality and the most complete satisfaction of our clients, stakeholders and final consumers.
Our idea of doing business has its roots in the sense of responsibility, in the search for authenticity, respecting time and natural resources. The men and women, the communities in which we operate and the materials from our natural environment represent our travel companions and are at the center of our attentions and our growth process.
Sustainability represents the core of our strategy and is a fundamental element in the process of creating value; to this end, we have prepared the noMade Sustainability Document, establishing all the principles and policies that must be implemented by the Group in carrying out its activities. It describes the commitment that must guide all those who act in various capacities in carrying out the Group’s activities, in their roles and responsibilities, with a special emphasis on the high level of integrity required of all.
The Document guarantees consistency and continuous improvement of the Group’s practices bydefining four fundamental principles:
- respect and promote human rights and fundamental freedoms
- contribute to the economy of the countries in which the group carries out its
- business by promoting its development and in active involvement in their activities
- demonstrate active solidarity
- promote a work environment that respects individual dignity
- safeguard natural resources and integrate the environmental dimension
- act responsibly and jointly
- earn the trust of customers
- prevent discrimination and respect for individuality
- guarantee the quality and transparency of the value chain
- protect critical savoir-faire;
- develop talents and preserve and transmit skills
The Group’s social responsibility is rooted in the fundamental principle of respect for people and their individuality. This principle directs all our initiatives and practices to reflect the highest standards of integrity towards each partner. We aim to contribute to the inclusive and sustainable growth of the areas in which we operate, developing artisan products that cleverly combine the manufacturing skills of the territory in which we operate with Italian technologies and design. The goal is that our innovations and creations bring real value to both the end customer and the communities that host us. Innovation must be both for the creation and improvement of the product and for improving our environmental performance.
Together we strive to make excellence a lever for social and professional inclusion in a solidarity dynamic with the territories and communities that host us, with the will to increase the positive social impact of our activities.
“Economic development will be true only if it is sustainable and will be able, by nature and for people, to contribute to a better administration of environmental resources, consistent with general interests. It concretely reflects our future. “Climate change does not need a passport to overcome the frontiers that man has drawn on the planet’s political map. Climate change is the key challenge of our time. Our generation is the first to experience the rapid rise in temperatures all over the world and probably the last to actually fight the impending global climate crisis. The values of man, and of his relationship with the Earth that hosts us, are at stake.”
The President of the Italian Republic (S. Mattarella)
