“The function of an industrial enterprise is fundamental and indispensable, but economic considerations alone cannot be enough to legitimize the work, they need to be integrated with respect for people, the community and the environment”
Ernesto Illy, 1976
In 2011 we became the first company in the world to achieve the “Responsible Supply Chain Process” certification.
Since 2013 we have been the only Italian company included in the Ethisphere Institute’s list of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies“.
In 2019 we decided to become a “Benefit Company“. This is a further confirmation of our commitment to operate responsibly and transparently, integrating economic and business objectives with social and environmental factors. Now we have set ourselves the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2033, 100 years since the company was founded.
