Veneta Cucine - Sustainability Report

Pubblicazione animata







Letter to Stakeholders, As the management body of the Veneta Cucine Group, we sense the urgency to contribute with enthusiasm and con viction to what we can and must do as a company, both in terms of actions and raising awareness, to protect the environment , our territory and the social context. Given the complexi ty of the challenge, our best efforts may be considered great or small, but if combined with the efforts of many others, what we can do will make the contribution significant. We would like ours to be an invitation to collabora te , to compare with each other, to spur each other on in order to be as incisive as possible in the pursuit of our com mon goal, and to preserve what is none other than “our home”. Our Company has a history going back more than fifty years, and over time has developed from a local concern to be come the leading Italian manufacturer of fitted kitchens. Our manufacturing is carried out in 5 factories, all loca ted in the Veneto region, proving our strong industrial vocation and roots. Throughout our history, many actions have been undertaken and investments made that have affected aspects of an environmental nature and social com mitment: from company certifications

to product certifications that have gra dually followed on over time, from the birth of the Green Thinking movement to all measures aimed at energy efficien cy, from sustainable choices made in manufacturing processes to the choice of materials that favour regenerated or recycled components, the focus on people and involvement of the supply chain. It is a commitment that we have been pursuing for many years, but what has undergone a dynamic and even unexpected acceleration recently has been precisely the realisation of the ur gency of having to deal with these is sues, the awareness that sustainability is the challenge of today and not of tomor row and that we cannot wait. We have decided to draw up a sustainability re port for our Company. For us, it is not a regulatory requirement, something we do because we are obliged to, rather it is the instrument with which we want to voluntarily formalise our engagement, it is a guide to transparently reporting what we do and a valid methodology for determining future planning. We have always been highly commit ted to making the homes and the ki tchens of those in Italy and around the world who have chosen us increasingly

more beautiful, well-made, functional, safe and in keeping with evolving life styles by offering extremely broad de sign and planning possibilities. And so we went from producing the so-called “buffet kitchens” of the Seventies to the “augmented space” of today, where kitchen environments relate and inte ract with the other rooms in our homes, providing an increasingly dynamic and integrated residential setting. We want to continue to design the homes of the future with this same enthusiasm: the future is the most beautiful space to de sign and we want the future, with our products, to be increasingly more su stainable.

This is our undertaking.
