As a tangible expression of its ethical commitment and corporate responsibility, Gruppo Montenegro – for years now has been promoting a number of sustainability projects, covering two major sectors: People, i.e. actions pertaining social sustainability for the benefit of people; Planet, i.e. actions aimed at environmental sustainability to defend and safeguard the planet.

In this regard, the point of reference are the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) laid out by the UN Agenda 2030, where 17 ambitious objectives are established for a fairer and more inclusive society. More specifically, the commitment on the part of Gruppo Montenegro is focused on some of these objectives, focusing on the regions where Gruppo Montenegro operates, to include actions on both a domestic and international scale.

Our commitment to the United Nations’s SDGs

Gruppo Montenegro supports

According to a recent survey by ISTAT (the Italian National Statistics Institute), as many as 33.8% of households do not have a pc or tablet available, while 57% of children have to share one computer with the rest of the family. This issue goes beyond the need which has been highlighted by the Covid-19 pandemic; indeed education is bound to become increasingly digitised, which means that students will be needing more and more online supports for their schoolwork.

We change culture with “Fondazione Libellula”

Gruppo Montenegro has become part of the Network of Fondazione Libellula, a group of companies which have agreed to become ambassadors of an inclusive culture, resulting in sensitivity and courage. Why Libellula (“Dragonfly”)? This animal spends most of its life at the bottom of a pond, then finally emerges from the mud and learns to fly. It has thus become a symbol of transformation, of the constant process of change, freedom and balance. Why the colour red? Apart from being a symbol of the fight against violence, red also stands for vital energy and willpower.

  • 3 billion tons of edible food are thrown away every year in the world (source: FAO, Global Food Losses and Food Waste, 2011)
  • 88 million tons of food are thrown away every year in Europe, of which 53% in the household (source: EU Fusions, Estimates of European food waste levels, 2016)
  • 40% of waste in industrialised countries is concentrated during the distribution and consumption phase (FAO, Make Not wasting a Way of Life, 2016)
