The Sustainability Report
Transparency towards our stakeholders is a fundamental principle that guides our Group in all its activities. This desire for transparency also translates into our decision to draft an annual, voluntary, Sustainability Report for the Group. Published for the first time in 2015, the document reports each year on the Company’s sustainability journey, reflecting its commitment across the globe through its main businesses.
Since the very first edition, we have drafted the Sustainability Report in compliance with Global Reporting Initiative Standards, the main internationally recognized criteria for reporting sustainability performance. The report is subject to a limited audit by an external assurance company, who issue an audit letter to attach to the Report.
“A Goal in every Cup – Leaving no one behind” is the title of the latest edition of the Group’s Sustainability Report, and also represents a tool that demonstrates our commitment to the United Nations’ Global Goals. The Report has four chapters, each relating to one of the Priority Goals we chose, as well as a section dedicated to the Lavazza Foundation.
“The Group’s aim is to make progress and build our own future, leaving no one behind.”
CEO Antonio Baravalle underlines the importance of keeping people front and centre, as the true engine of the company sour path to development and success, renewing our commitment to the 2030 Agenda, in the belief that post-pandemic industrial development can only be built on the principles of economic, social and environmental sustainability.
The Group’s operations are based on these principles, which are illustrated in the 2020 Sustainability Report.
