RadiciGroup's 2011 Sustainability Report achieves GRI B+
Nov '12
For the ninth consecutive year, RadiciGroup has published its Sustainability Report, a document reporting on its activities and achievements in the field of corporate social responsibility. For the first time, the document has been prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Framework – the most widely used guidelines for non-financial reporting worldwide – and has achieved GRI Application Level B+. (A “+” can be appended to the level if external assurance has been given. External assurance for the RadiciGroup Sustainability Report was provided by Certiquality.)

For RadiciGroup, this Report is a significant achievement and an important step towards meeting the challenge of making sustainability a tool for business, innovation and corporate culture.

Besides illustrating the activities and achievements of Group companies during the course of 2011, the Report bears witness to the Group’s commitment to critical issues from environmental protection to human and peoples’ rights; care for customers, products, and communities; and the need for sustainable economic growth.

Compared to the 2010 edition, the 2011 Sustainability Report has not only made the transition from the Responsible Care model to the GRI Framework for its data gathering process but has also changed the reporting boundary (which makes it impossible to compare the 2011 Sustainability Report with prior versions).

In his introductory letter to the 2011 Sustainability Report, Angelo Radici, president of RadiciGroup, stresses that the image of RadiciGroup emerging from the Report corresponds to reality, because it reflects the Group’s heart and soul: its production companies that depend on the strong participation of the Group’s main stakeholders, its employees. It is a truthful picture disclosing the Group’s limitations, which the various companies will regard as great opportunities for improvement.
