Over the years, we have created a business model that put the environment and the social aspects first; that inspires a sustainable development through targeted investments, constant attention to people to the production processes and to the impact on the environment.
“Sustainability, next level” is a fundamental value for us.
“Our commitment for the environment and respect for people to build a better world for the new generations. Every day.”
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT?
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
cit. Gro Harlem Brundtland, Our common future, 1987, chairman of the World Commission on Environment and Development sponsored by the United Nations.
For Gruppo Mastrotto, this approach represents the milestone of sustainable development upon which we base all our actions of environmental, social and economic responsibility.
