Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award

Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award

Registration is now open for the third edition of the Suppliers Sustainability Award, the annual award set up with the aim of encouraging, spreading, enhancing and rewarding the best practices and improvement actions you have employed in the field of social and environmental responsibility.

The award ceremony of the Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award 2018 will be held on 4th October in Columbus, USA, coinciding with the inauguration of our new American plant. Our first greenfield investment in the continent was made in Circleville, Ohio, where we built our largest, most modern and most sustainable integrated production site, characterized by the installation of new generation paper mill and converting technologies and by the fully automated warehouse management of the finished product.

We are well aware that all this has been possible thanks to the work of our suppliers and, through the Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award, we wish to acknowledge the value of your collaboration by rewarding, in this particular case, your commitment to sustainability. There are two awards in the Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award. One is awarded based on the score given in the “TenP” platform, the self-assessment performance tool created by the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation and built on the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact. The second is awarded by taking into consideration the implementation of specific initiatives. More specifically, the prizes that will be awarded are:

  • Best Supplier, for the company that obtained the highest score on the “TenP” platform;
  • Best Sustainable Project, for the company that has implemented a particularly important environmental or social sustainability initiative.

Subscriptions will expire on 15 September 2018 – Download the announcement



We are convinced that building a sustainable future, for both companies and individuals, inevitably requires an increasingly widespread and shared commitment and the need for each person, each within their own sphere and according to their role, to take on new and broader responsibilities. And our annual prize was set up specifically with this direction in mind.

After the second edition, held in Lucca, the Group decided to hold the award ceremony this year in London, capital of the country in which Sofidel records its highest share of turnover together with Italy. Nearly 400 suppliers (60 more than last year) from Europe and North America took part in the second edition of the awards.

“Promoting sustainable and responsible growth also means, within our vision, raising awareness and promoting involvement of our partners so we can do more and do it better,” stated Luigi Lazzareschi, CEO of the Sofidel Group. “We’re convinced that building a sustainable future involves a widespread, common commitment, and a need to assume, each within their area and according to their role, new and broader responsibilities.”

The second edition – supported by the Italian Ministry for the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea – was held in collaboration with: Elettric 80, Fabio Perini, Södra, Henkel, A.Celli, Kemira (Global Partner); Industria Cartaria Pieretti, Pulsar (Premium Partner); Fondazione Ecosistemi (Official Partner); Touchwa.re (Digital Partner); Tissue World Magazine (Media Partner).
