Our definition of the Sustainable Development Goals

Definition of the SDGs to which we can realistically contribute is followed by the identification of our commitments to make a tangible contribution to their achievement, disseminating these commitments in our organisation and in our business. Over the next three to five years, the Group’s focus will therefore be on implementing four projects.

We have summarised these commitments in a strategic plan that will guide us in the coming years. 

Product development and sustainable innovation

R&D has always been a key element for Gefran, a lever for creating value: innovation necessarily involves key processes to achieve sustainability goals. Our project is aimed at analysing how Gefran can further expand its offer, developing new products in the Industry 4.0 context and implementing a number of "pilot solutions" in terms of analysis and skills development to be launched on the market. The focus will be on energy efficiency, evolution of technological skills towards an increasingly digital approach and Open Innovation.

Dissemination of a sustainability culture

We believe sharing and transmission of a sustainability culture to our suppliers is a priority, addressing mainly local or small/medium-sized suppliers, which by their very nature cannot easily access sustainability issues or which, although interested in implementing them, have greater difficulty in finding resources to launch concrete projects.

Obtaining new certifications

We intend to extend current certifications and implement an environmental management system, an occupational health and safety management system and a management system for aspects related to corporate social responsibility (respect for human rights, workers' rights, protection against exploitation of minors, guarantee of safety and health in the workplace).

Talent development and constant feedback guarantee

We intend to ensure all Group employees the opportunity to develop their skills and improve their performance through implementation of a methodological assessment and feedback system, open to all.
