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 first destination on our transformation journey is in 2030. We have been pursuing a strategy consisting of 4 focus areas and specific targets, following the 2030 goals common to all United Nations Member States: The Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, adopted in 2015 as a universal call for action.
A step forward, every day
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 progresses ares 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.
We rely on tradition to ensure the quality and technical performance of our speciality papers and self – adhesive materials, and on our talents to deliver highly aesthetic, innovative content. We know how to meet the needs of our customers and designers in terms of:
– quality and performance of our products.
– sustainability of our supply chain.
– sustainability of our production processes.
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: From partnerships in international projects, such as Inspiring Girls International, to our commitment to disseminating art and culture through the Fedrigoni Fabriano Foundation and the Festival del Disegno; from our collaboration with universities, schools and associations, to Fedrigoni Wood near our plants.
