Measuring sustainability for greater credibility

RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report
RadiciGroup presents its 2018 Sustainability Report: All products are recyclable, all companies ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Group value added increases, yet the amount of resources used and emissions generated decreases.

The RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report, prepared according to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core Option, was presented by RadiciGroup President Angelo Radici at Confindustria Bergamo (Bergamo Manufacturers’ Association) headquarters. RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report

The data collected and provided in the Report confirmed once again the positive trend in the Group’s economic, environmental and social performance.
“I am very proud of the positive and tangible results achieved again in 2018,” remarked Angelo Radici.

“They are a concrete response to the issues concerning our children, grandchildren and the communities where we all live.

Our commitment to sustainability goes way back and our objective today is to continue along the same path we have been following: the company as a leader for change, promoting competitive sustainability that generates growing virtuous demand for reduced environmental impact products all along the value chain, while engaging all its stakeholders in the strategy.” RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report
RadiciGroup products are its visiting card. All products are designed for total end-of-life recyclability, many of them are obtained from recycled secondary raw materials and still others are obtained from bio-source materials.

All materials are manufactured in production plants certified to ISO standards, which provide reliable guidelines for setting up, managing and monitoring projects and laying out improvement plans.

Furthermore, in 2018, all Group sites completed the transition to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, the new editions of the standards for quality management systems and environmental management systems, respectively.RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report

“In the last few years,” Angelo Radici added, “we have worked hard on innovation,
consistent measurement of product impact and staff training. Moreover, sizeable
investments have been made in our plants not only to improve their performance but also
to make them part of the community.

Our objective is always business continuity; we want to remain a reliable partner for all our customers and stakeholders in the long term.”

The RadiciGroup sustainability strategy is based on “participation and sharing” and requires the constant engagement of all its stakeholders, the objective being to keep working together in a dynamic equilibrium of ever changing challenges and scenarios, which now include ambitious Group targets regarding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 2018 Sustainability Report was drawn up using the data on over 20 indicators
collected from 22 manufacturing sites and the parent company, with the involvement of about 70 employees from the various Group companies.
Regarding the resources used, in 2018 RadiciGroup saved 69% of the water used by
reusing it several times and, in some plants, up to 60 times.
As concerns the consumption of resources per unit produced, during the 2016-2018 threeyear period there was a 7% reduction in water usage, a 3.5% reduction in the use of energy from primary fossil sources and a 10% drop in overall CO2eq emissions.RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report

Overthe longer 2011-2018 time span, the Group reduced its overall CO2eq emissions per unit produced by 56%.
Another significant figure from the 2018 Sustainability Report is the electricity mix, with
green energy greater than 43% of the total, most of which generated by hydroelectric plants. RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report

This positive environmental performance goes hand in hand with economic performance:
2018 net global value added (the wealth that a company is able to create for all its
stakeholders – see graph) was still on the rise, reaching EUR 280 million (EUR 258 million
in 2017). RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report

Noteworthy is the fact that this increase in value added was accompanied by a
decrease in resources used, such as energy and water, and a drop in emissions.

RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report
“I would like to stress our continuous attention to our collaborators,” Angelo Radici
concluded. “They are our true ambassadors for sustainability inside and outside our
Group. We continue to invest in them, also through training programmes to improve their
professional and personal skills, with a special focus on issues concerning health and
safety.” RadiciGroup 2018 Sustainability Report
