How we work

The Sustainability Report




Transparency towards our stakeholders is a fundamental principle that guides the Lavazza Group in all our 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 on the Company’s sustainability journey, reflecting its commitment across the globe through its business principles.

Since the very first edition, the report has been drafted 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 published within 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 Lavazza’s commitment to the United Nations’ Global Goals. These Goals are represented by four chapters relating to each of the respective Priority Goals outlined by the Company, 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, in the Group’s path to development and success, renewing their 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.
