A step further than yesterday

Committing to a sustainable development journey means embracing transformation and making progress every day.

We, at Fedrigoni, live and breathe sustainability with the ‘Making Progress’ approach, a process of ongoing transformation and improvement that involves the whole ecosystem, i.e. brands, printers, converters, graphic designers and suppliers, favouring the creation of a responsible and sustainable supply chain.
We apply the principles of circular economy in all our production processes to manufacture our specialty papers and self-adhesive materials, reducing our carbon footprint and improving our management of raw materials, water, and waste. Designing our products according to eco-design, we implement cutting-edge technologies testing new materials. We have long been doing this with our people, ensuring their talent is valued, so that everyone can contribute to consolidating an inclusive and safe environment. We ask the same to our suppliers, to comply with human rights and biodiversity even upstream.

The environment

Decarbonisation, safeguarding biodiversity, responsible water management: we have charted a specific path, which includes risk mapping and quantitative indicators, striving to reduce our impact on the environment and protecting the natural ecosystems. Our progress is measured and increased by a careful choice of suppliers, assessed according to our standards.

Our corporate culture has always focused on people, their talent, growth, safety, and rights. The same applies in each location of the Group, with a Code of Ethics and an approach to environmental risk management (ERM) leading us. We have identified areas for action with measurable goals: safety, inclusion, training and value creation for the community.

Products

The development of our products, which has always been inspired by the highest quality levels, also includes environmental performance. Our production respects the principles of circular economy: all our special paper collections are recyclable and most of them are also biodegradable and compostable. For our adhesives, we are working on materials with recycled content and single-material solutions to facilitate recycling.

The world around us

Our production is based on the use of natural resources and we are hence part of the communities where we operate, close to the people. We pursue a large number of initiatives, in many directions: From the Fedrigoni Wood near our plants to our commitment to disseminating art and culture through the Fedrigoni Fabriano Foundation and the Drawing Festival; from our collaboration with universities, schools and associations to partnerships in international projects , such as Inspiring Girls International.
