The future is now!

One of the elements characterising 2017 was undoubtedly growing awareness that technological innovation – like digitalisation, Big Data and Industria 4.0 – will have an ever greater influence on people’s lives, and the consequent growing attention given to this aspect by the Group, in procurement, production and distribution.

With its vision focused on sustainable and responsible growth, Sofidel is looking to the future, with the UN 2030 Agenda and its “17 Sustainable Development Goals” as its reference point.

The future is now!

2017 was an important year in many respects.
In various areas of the world, after the long years of crisis, the macroeconomic data revealed a strengthening recovery and the election season involving many countries where Sofidel operates (including the United States, France, Great Britain and Germany) came to an end.

The focus on sustainability as a lever for competitive growth, the attention given to technological innovation, the pursuit of quality, the construction of stable and long-lasting relationships with stakeholders and a positive approach to the future have been key factors in the Group’s growth.
