B Corp: Costadoro obtains B Corporation certification
Costadoro S.p.A. was among the first companies in Italy specialised in the coffee sector to obtain the B Corp Certification, which recognises companies that operate according to the highest standards of social and environmental performance.
After the achievements of the past years in sustainability and social responsibility, Costadoro is one of the first companies specialised in the coffee sector in Italy (the third after Illy and Nespresso) to obtain the coveted B Corp Certification, awarded to companies that are committed to observing the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and that operate with respect for all stakeholders involved in the system: from suppliers to customers, passing through employees, with particular attention to future generations.
B Corp: for a company to call itself excellent, it must also be excellent socially, which is why Costadoro decided to embark on this virtuous path
The B Corporation Certification also represents a great challenge for the company, namely to demonstrate that it is possible to do business while respecting society and the environment: “creating value while respecting values“.
This achievement is the merit of the entire company because all departments and all people have been involved.
Ethics and sustainability have always been respected, but today the commitment is different and we will measure ourselves year by year to improve.
Along the way, the help of Nativa Regenerative Innovation Company, a consultancy company specialising in this field, has been crucial, in addition to the expertise of everyone involved and the project managers.
There has been a lot of work, and it has also been formalised by obtaining the status of Benefit Company with the amendment of the Articles of Association, which took place on 14 March 2023, by the Notary Francesca Morotti Astore, where it was officially sanctioned that the objective of Costadoro S.p.A. is not only economic but also social.
A good company a make better coffee
Being sustainable means operating in a responsible manner throughout the entire supply chain, starting from the suppliers of raw materials, passing through its employees, up to the end customers, never forgetting the impact on the environment and society.
Furthermore, special attention is given to the world of young people by offering them rewarding work opportunities and above all by transferring to them what are the founding values of Costadoro S.p.A.
A good company to make an even better coffee. A special thanks goes to all the people at Costadoro who had the courage and intuition to take this direction. B Corporation Certification is a source of pride for the company, but it is also a great challenge, namely to demonstrate that it is possible to do business while respecting society and the environment: “creating value while respecting values”. Ethics and sustainability have always been respected, but today the commitment is different and we will measure ourselves year by year to improve.These were the first words of CEO Giulio Trombetta
With the B Corporation Certification, other markets will be reached and many other entrepreneurs will be inspired, bringing Italian excellence and value to the world: this is a source of great pride for the management and employees of the Turin-based company, which not by chance belongs to the Exclusive Brands Torino network, which brings together the best of like-minded companies in the area.
