Believes in Sustainability

Along with a group of companies of the CPF, we set out on this path by defining a Charter of Values fir Sustainability which is articulated on several points:

  • Traceability in the supply chain: from the procurement of raw materials to the last phase of working inside or outside the company
  • Meeting standards and international conventions on human rights
  • Respect and dignity of life of every living thing
  • Protection of the environment and biodiversity: limiting the environmental impact of production with use and prudent management of chemical substances

This first step will follow, always on a voluntary basis, other actions to implement in practice the values ​​in which we recognized and the goals we set ourselves.

It ‘s inevitable that the production process becomes fully sustainable in relation to consumers, customers, employees and the entire community, and because of the path we have undertaken, will become reality quickly
