The concept of sustainability does not have a unique definition. On the contrary, it consists of many uses and meanings, each containing different implications depending on its fields of application.
For Nova Fides, sustainability is viewed as a system that develops and progresses, using renewable resources, avoiding negative impacts on society and the environment, consequently preserving and meeting the needs of future generations. Ensuring intergenerational equity, conserving future environmental balance and the moral/ethical integrity of society are the highest priorities for Nova Fides.
Sustainability does not therefore simply mean an awareness of and attention to the environment. The company views sustainability as a virtuous meshing of three areas: economic, social and environmental. The relationship between these three pillars ensures the sustainability of the business, meaning its ability to create value over time.
For this reason, the company’s sustainable strategies have focused on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), product development and reducing environmental impact through targeted investments, always maintaining high levels of profitability.
“What is sustainability for me? First of all, promoting our people. A sustainable company must share its principles with all stakeholders with the final goal of reaching economic, environmental and social standards that do not compromise the wellbeing of future generations. Only through solid collaboration and alignment on values, is it possible to act consciously, pursuing everyone’s wellbeing. So, for me, people will always be at the heart of it all.”
“Sustainability not only means focusing on the environment and society. By definition, a company, to be sustainable, must record positive results. Today, in order to operate sustainably on the market, a company must create quality, eco-conscious and high-performance products. For this reason, we have always been attentive to new trends and ideas. We never stop learning, and we love this.”
Sustainability: an opportunity for growth
Nova Fides has decided to make many investments over the years, mainly aimed at optimizing production processes and logistical systems; to purchase new, more efficient machinery; to reduce the amount of resources used; and to convey a message of commitment and responsibility to the environment, the local area and society.
