This report highlights the economic, environmental and social performances of 23 RadiciGroup companies. Data, figures and case histories that demonstrate, once again, how the path for sustainable growth led to ever improving results, in the light of a sustainability approach based on a dynamic equilibrium that takes into account ever changing circumstances.

Thanks to its sustainability policies, RadiciGroup contributes to reaching several Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDGs).

“As for the economic results, the global added value of RadiciGroup along with all the main economic parameters have been constantly improving over the last three years, while the Group is using fewer and fewer resources in its operations,” the company reports.

A large portion of the 2018 total value added has been allocated to employees so as to share the created social and economic value with the main Group stakeholders. The Group’s Energy/Water/GHG gas intensity ratios – that is, quantities of resources used and emissions generated in proportion to value added – are inversely proportional.

“As for the environmental highlights, RadiciGroup focuses on the use of energy from renewable sources, more specifically from hydroelectric plants, as it is firmly committed to saving resources, carefully rationalising their consumption,” the company continues. “As far as social performances are concerned, great attention is paid to safety at work and employee training, with the aim of safeguarding the workforce, thus guaranteeing the best results.”

In 2018, the RadiciGroup selected energy mix consisted of a sizeable amount of renewable source energy. In particular, renewable source electricity, prevalently hydroelectric power, accounted for around 43.7%. This energy mix, compared to the standard national energy mix of relevant countries, enabled the Group to emit 29% less GHG gas.
