2019 Results

The main objectives set in 2018 and the results obtained in 2019.

Organize a summit to increase our suppliers’ sustainability

In November 2019 we organized, for the first time, a meeting at the Davines Village for our most sustainability-conscious suppliers. Participants were selected based on the results of the annual sustainability questionnaire and the interest that they have shown in B Corp certification. During the workshop, examples were shared of good practices and useful tools to increase sustainability performance. Four suppliers also talked about their B Corp certification process.

Guide the Italian B Corp community’s 2019 impact project

The project was conceived with the aim of removing as much plastic as possible from one of the accumulation zones that have been created in the Mediterranean Sea. In view of the technical limitations that emerged, a decision was made to change the project’s scope, while preserving its original purpose. Consequently, two parallel initiatives have been launched: the collection of plastic from an Italian river that is a Mediterranean tributary and the implementation of local initiatives by Italian B Corps. The project will continue for the duration of 2020.

Increase the number of B Corp certified partners

The goal has been achieved. In 2019, 2 new company suppliers became B Corps, raising our total number of certified partners to 5. This result was made possible by the company’s determination and the work of the Purchasing Department which, following the Group’s B Corp certification, has promoted the creation of an interdependent network among suppliers by inviting them to complete the B Impact Assessment (BIA).

Create a fair and transparent process for assessing local projects

We have created a fair and transparent evaluation process that allows us to objectively choose projects – from the many that we are recommended – that merit priority support. Firstly, we have defined both quantitative and qualitative KPIs according to which all new projects are evaluated. The sum of all the KPIs defines the score assigned to the project, which enables the company to rank the projects that require support.

KILOMETROVERDEPARMA, REFORESTATION IS ONLINE

Since June 2020 the KilometroVerdeParma website has been online, a reforestation project that aims to create green areas and permanent forests in Parma and its province. The site publishes updates about the project and useful information to support it. Shared contribution is one of the project’s main strengths, since everyone can do their part by providing a plot of land or garden, giving their time as volunteers or participating in promotion, information and dissemination activities, including at schools.
