Combining economic development and environmental protection is possible, and Almaviva wanted to make it one of the group’s strategic goals: to become a “green” company.
Since 2008, Almaviva Green Project has been underway within the company in an effort to make Almaviva Group more environmentally friendly thanks to the company and trade union working together in an innovative model of industrial relationship:
To prevent and reduce the negative environmental impact and energy consumption generated by its business activities, Almaviva has developed and implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) and Energy Management System (EMS) which comply with the UNI EN ISO 14001 and UNI ISO 50001 standards and plan and systematize the group’s environmentally friendly behaviors as well as its efficient use of Information Technology, the improvement of which employees, suppliers and other interested parties are called upon to actively collaborate in.
For this process of change which will affect all areas of the company, an entirely new strategy was chosen, which has strengthened the joint efforts of the company and trade union, creating a combined and multi-faceted Green Team (with representatives from the different areas involved: Human Resources, Communications, General Services, Purchasing, Quality, etc.) whose job it is to promote and coordinate activities according to a detailed plan of initiatives to be organized.
In this context, the Company-Union relationship has developed higher levels of communication, thus improving the quality of the entire industrial relationship system.
