Our company is solid, a company built with passion and determination by those who founded it. In fifty years of activity, many people have contributed to its success: employees, customers, suppliers, financial institutions, universities... a living and flourishing fabric, a community and a communion of intent in which ideas, projects, products and innovation were born and developed.
To ensure the continuity of this success in the future, it is essential to invest in order for this community to remain alive.The company's actions, which are strongly oriented towards sustainability, have over time guaranteed productivity, employment, people's well-being and, last but not least, value and financial solidity, which are crucial to the company's survival.
The value of the plan is twofold: on the one hand, it contains the founding elements of our sustainability strategy, thus directing our commitments and investments towards objectives that must subsequently become measurable; on the other, by sharing the plan with our stakeholders, it allows us to align our targets with them.
We have chosen to adopt a broad strategic initiative, we have defined a plan of commitments in line with the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations (Global Compact), identifying the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to which we can make tangible contributions. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy systems for everyone. Build a resilient infrastructure and promote innovation and fair, responsible and sustainable industrialisation. Stimulate long-lasting, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for everyone. Ensure sustainable production and consumption patterns. Take urgent measures to combat climate change and its consequences. Strengthen sustainable development implementation means and renew its global partnership. We will do this through tangible initiatives, which we will illustrate and schedule, with the concreteness and determination that distinguishes us.
We have chosen a number of work guidelines that are close to our corporate DNA and our daily actions: investment in innovation, development of products dedicated to energy efficiency, dissemination of a sustainability culture among our suppliers, extension of certifications (environmental management, occupational health and safety, corporate social responsibility) and implementation of a performance assessment and feedback system open to all Group employees.
We have identified our commitments in a structured and shared process, which we believe will lead us to achieve the important and challenging objectives we have set ourselves, through actual involvement of our stakeholders and reporting transparency for careful measurement of the impacts.
Companies are the true engine of change locally and we feel we have an economic and social responsibility, our choices are guided by a long-term vision: as he who built this company often says, starting from his garage, we must design the Gefran of the next generations, the Gefran of the future.
A sincere thank you to all those who have contributed to the definition of our strategic plan and who, in the difficult times we are currently experiencing, have continued with confidence to act with a perspective also extended to the generations to come.
Because at Gefran, the future is our present
