An imperative principle: sustainability
We are aware of how important it is to take care of the vine and the soil that generate it as well as the life of those who work with the land every day. This is why we have decided to undertake a path of sustainability, with the intention of committing ourselves to protecting human and environmental resources as much as possible to ensure a better future for the next generations.
A virtuous route… to tell and report!
Sustainability is not just a "trendy" word to us, to be used for mere marketing purposes. It is instead a modus operandi that involves every company process: the care for raw materials, the respect for workers, and the careful selection of suppliers and distributors.
We want to be an example for other businesses, that is why we have decided to tell about our values and the activities we carry out every day with our work.
In the Marche region we have launched an ambitious project that led to the drafting of the Sustainability Report, an accurate analysis that focuses on the social, economic and environmental impact of the company, and which testifies to the virtuous processes that have made it possible to minimize the environmental impact of production. The path started with the Conti degli Azzoni winery and we aim at extending it to the other companies of the group. The procedure for obtaining B Corp certification and becoming a benefit company has begun as well.
Degli Azzoni Wines has decided to embark on a path of sustainability for people, for the environment and for the planet. To strengthen a belief now rooted in the entire group, the management has decided to go further and make its commitment even more effective by aiming to become B Corp certified within the next few years.
The aim is to evaluate one's socio-economic and environmental standards with one of the most complete programs in circulation and to communicate proactively with all its stakeholders.
Degli Azzoni Wines, after in-depth analysis and research, decided that B Corp was the right accreditation to pursue as it is complete and rigorous in the assessment with the B Impact Assessment, including all company areas from the environment to people.
The company will strive to become an organization oriented towards a more advanced business paradigm. Upon reaching the status of B Corp, it will in fact be required to legally amend its by-laws so that society and the environment become a fundamental part of the corporate mission, becoming a Benefit Company in effect.
The B Corp framework will provide a roadmap that will see profound changes materialize, year after year, with the aim of having a positive impact on the environment, society and people.
