On the occasion of Milano Unica and the launch of its new, low environmental impact fabric, H.O.P.E., Vitale Barberis Canonico presents its first Sustainability Report.
Such environmental and social topics are not new for the Company, although they have never before been formalised in a document. Thus, in 2018, the desire to communicate and improve the Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives which had become operational practice, Vitale Barberis Canonico has passed from “acts to words” with a non-financial account in the form of this first Sustainability Report. This document describes the initiatives and principal results in economic, social and environmental terms and has the objective of illustrating Vitale Barberis Canonico sustainability strategies and the associated performance of the two production sites in Pratrivero and Pray, both in the Biellese region.
Along with the fundamental values regarding ethics, morals and transparency, the document also takes a detailed look at:
• the valorisation of the professionalism of everybody who works in the company;
• occupational health and safety;
• protection of the environment;
• respect for the area in which the company operates.
