Corporate Social Responsibility
For us, being socially responsible, means making a real commitment and embarking on a growth path consistent with ethical, social and environmental principles. Thanks to the installation of our photovoltaic system, which produces an average of 960,00 KW, every year we avoid the release into the atmosphere of about 438 tonnes of CO2. Thanks to photovoltaic energy, we reduce the emissions of polluting substances and the use of solid fuels. Furthermore, we completely abolish noise pollution.
95% of our waste is recycled and only 5% goes to disposal. We choose completely sustainable and recyclable packaging, with paper, cardboard and plastic packaging made with recycled materials.
In the social sphere, we support local organisations, especially those involving culture, sport, and young people. We have been supporting the theatre season of the Mercadante Theatre in Altamura for years. We are the main sponsor of Daken Invicta Matera, a youth amateur sports club. We sponsor the women’s volleyball team of Gioia del Colle as well.
