2018 Results

The main objectives set in 2017 and the results obtained in 2018.

ENCOURAGE B CORP CULTURE WITH OUR DISTRIBUTION AND SUPPLIER PARTNERS

Understanding the importance of interdependence has inspired the company to share B Corp culture with its partners, with the hope that an ever-increasing number of partners join us on the path toward a sustainable future.

This is why the number of our meetings with our suppliers and distributors have increased significantly so that we can provide them with information and encourage them to fill in the B Impact Assessment, the questionnaire that leads to B Corp certification. In 2018, two of our partners were certified. This is in addition to the two from the year before, and another four who are currently in the certification review phase.

ENCOURAGE OUR SUPPLIERS TO USE RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY

The use of electricity from renewable sources is one of the simplest sustainable actions that can be implemented. When suppliers express the desire to become a B Corp but at the moment cannot invest in the time, energy, and changes necessary, the Davines Group encourages them to opt for renewable electricity. This is an important sign of the direction that the company wishes to share with its suppliers. In 2018, there were 112 Davines suppliers who used renewable electricity.

INCREASE PROJECTS WITH A POSITIVE IMPACT AND THAT GIVE BACK TO THE REGION: SUPPORT FOR ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND CULTURAL SUSTAINABILITY

In 2018, the Davines Group generously supported environmental, social, and cultural sustainability in its region. Investments doubled compared to 2017 and consequently the company was able to support local projects and involve Davines colleagues. The company sponsored projects that resonated on a national and international
level were: “The Third Day “, “The Night of the Third Day “, the “Km verde”, and the “Cittadella Music Festival” – all initiatives that contributed significantly to improving the region’s appeal.

And that’s not all. The company sponsored another 4 projects of major importance, including the “Sustainable Development Festival” and the “Slowness Festival”. Last but not least, Davines colleagues were involved in some of these projects and this led to excellent results: comparing the data for the same period, these initiatives doubled the number of company volunteering hours.
