Our sustainability journey is based on 3 pillars: Products, Processes, and People. We're focusing our attention and developing projects in the areas of commitment here below in order to improve our sustainability performances.
Areas of commitment
Develop innovative and sustainable products by integrating environmental criteria in the design process to minimize product impacts related to sourcing, manufacturing, distribution, usage and end of life.
Raise awareness and promote Sustainable lifestyles and education to all our stakeholders (DL people, Communities and Consumers), also leveraging on the sustainable value enabled by our products within coffee, kitchen and comfort areas.
Spreading our sustainability ideals throughout our supply chain, promoting environmental responsibility to our suppliers and encouraging virtuous behaviour in their production.
Contribute to the fight against climate change through low carbon and energy efficient products, gradual decarbonization of processes and by raising people's awareness on the issue.
Products with a purpose
For us, innovation means research to improve materials, product durability and energy efficiency, as well as the development of technology that enables and promotes a healthy lifestyle for our consumers. Every De’ Longhi Group product is conceived, designed and manufactured with the aim of improving the life of those who choose it. Improvement means more than making daily life easier and more comfortable; it means that neither the environment nor future generations should bear the weight of those improvements. Because today, is already tomorrow.
People are our power
Power as in strength, but also energy, as in the positive force of the people who work within the Group and those who are current or future customers. We are committed to preserving that energy, that strength, and cultivating it. We create a stimulating workplace to attract, motivate and foster the growth of our people. A safe and healthy place animated by ambition, but also by passion, competence and the desire to work as a team, respecting the diversity and potential of each individual. We also invest actively in projects and actions to support the local communities we operate within and to help them grow and prosper. We keep our humanity alive, which is a renewable and inextinguishable resource.
Processes are value in progress
The De’ Longhi Group is committed to managing energy resources responsibly and efficiently, actively contributing to the fight against climate change. At the same time, our priority is to guarantee unwavering respect for human rights and working conditions at every stage of production, helping the communities in which we operate to prosper. Our attention to the environment and social impact never stop, just as the value chain does not. A chain that for the De’ Longhi Group, closes in on itself to become a virtuous circle throughout the production process.
Reduce the environmental impact of packaging in our processes and operations and in our final products.
Promote a model based on the use of renewable materials and the reduction of consumption within our value chain, from product design and supply chain, through our plants and distribution network, to product use and end of life.
Ensure a safe workplace for our people and promote health & safety and environmental protection culture in our operations.
Inspire a new idea of sustainability for people, with health and wellness as a core value and foundation pillars in building a better community, inside and outside our Group.
