With the EcoVadis silver medal award, achieved by only 25% of the companies evaluated, Fenzi Italia takes its place among the top-ranked companies in the international marketplace.
Adopting socially responsible behaviors that satisfy the economic, environmental and social expectations of all is a philosophy that has been part of the Fenzi Group’s mission since its inception. In a highly competitive environment, this family business has grown into a multinational group by combining workplace objectives and those regarding the social context in which the company operates.
As a validation of this philosophy, Fenzi was awarded the Silver Medal by EcoVadis, a global rating agency that objectively evaluates the performance of companies and their supply chains on environmental, social and ethical topics. The EcoVadis evaluation methodology is based on international standards, like the Global Reporting Index (GRI), ISO 26000 and the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact. This is why being on the podium – having responded positively to the strict criteria imposed – is a major acknowledgement of the efforts and activities the company undertakes every day in terms of comprehensive safety and sustainability.
At the Fenzi Group, responsibility toward employees and the environment not only means respecting the standards of the various countries in which it operates but goes beyond the limits set by law. Thanks to a finely tuned Quality Control system, that responsibility is also based on careful evaluation of the raw materials, using only those with the least environmental impact and the lowest VOC emissions during processing, and on the traceability of products sold by completing precise safety checklists for greater traceability of the materials used.
It also depends on the monitoring of pollutant emissions at all phases of production, on the correct management and disposal of wastes with a view to ongoing reduction, on a substantial safety policy implemented both through staff training and efficient checks of staff upon entering the facility.
The Group's policy is to work in harmony with the interests of its clients, with those who will benefit from the results of its processes, all of its partners, and its social context, for the wellbeing of all. This reconfirmation of its excellence lends further value to the activities implemented thus far.
