The Group's first Sustainability Week
Approximately 2,200 employees involved, over 20 face-to-face and virtual themed workshops, 5 volunteer initiatives for offices in Italy and abroad, an international video contest: these are the numbers of the first Sustainability Week of the GEWISS Group which, by with the publication of the first Sustainability Report of the two Group companies, it bears witness to their commitment to consolidating the path towards sustainable growth. Until 15 September, a five-day event that offers all employees the opportunity to discuss sustainability issues directly and interactively, raising their awareness of the adoption of responsible behaviour.
The first edition of Sustainability Week will close with a major event at the GEWISS Experience Center (GEC) for the Group's employees, with the presence of Chef Davide Oldani, awarded two Michelin Stars and the special "Green Star" recognition, which the prestigious Guide awards those restaurateurs who stand out for their support of local producers, the defense of zero km products and the removal of plastic and other non-recyclable materials from their supply chains. As well as for sustainable actions relating to the fight against food waste, the cultivation of one's own products and involvement in educational and charitable projects.
The Chef will participate with a speech on attention to human resources, nutrition and circular cooking, and will close with a final show cooking for those present.
“These will be days – concluded Cervini – exciting and full of participation, in all the locations of our Clusters. In addition to the in-person and streaming workshops, the Group's collaborators will be directly involved in volunteering initiatives in many territories in which we are present. Our commitment with stakeholders in different regions of the world helps us even more to deepen our roots in the territory and relationships with local communities, to which we have always felt strongly linked.
All the activities of our first Sustainability Week are designed, organized and proposed by people and for people. The people who represent the heart of human capital, the most precious asset for our Group. A capital to be respected, preserved and grown. Also thanks to shared Values and Behaviors, which in turn allow us to create good in the territories in which we have been and will be present. To contribute, already today, to truly sustainable development."
