Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award

Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award

In 2016 Sofidel instituted the Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award, a yearly acknowledgement whose purpose is to promote the best practices and improvement actions on social and environmental responsibility carried out by national and international Sofidel Group Suppliers. This is focused on the “TenP – Sustainable Supply Chain Self-Assessment Platform” project, created and promoted by the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation (GCNI Foundation), of which the Group is a “Promoting Founding” member. The platform represents a self-assessment for performance evaluation: it was created following the Ten Principles (“TenP”) of the United Nations’ Global Compact.

On the 5th October 2018 took place the awards ceremony of the third edition of the Sofidel Suppliers Sustainability Award (3SAward)  in Columbus, Ohio (USA). Sofidel set up two awards categories:

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).
