Sustainability is based on a continuous evolution and awareness of one’s own limits, strengths and priorities for action. Listening to, and engaging with stakeholders are key elements in building a path that creates shared value along the whole supply chain. With this awareness, Lavazza has welcomed the global-scale principles of sustainability established by the United Nations.
Lavazza and the UN Global Compact
The Global Compact is a United Nations initiative launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos in 1999 by Kofi Annan. It was born with the aim of aligning, for the first time, the international community and the world of business in facing the challenges of globalisation.
With its entry into the Global Compact, in 2017, Lavazza joined a network of more than 9,000 players, from the private sector and beyond, from more than 135 countries engaged in the promotion and implementation of ten ethical principles divided into categories: "Respect for human rights", "Respect for the environment", "Fight against corruption". Lavazza is inspired by these values to promote, together with its employees, the feeling of belonging to a project of solid and sustainable development.
