Penna Coronet

Letter to the stakeholders

Coronet S.p.A. recognizes corporate social responsibility as a determining factor for its own strategic development and searches for an approach aimed at enhancing the value of people within a business model oriented towards economic, environmental and social sustainability. The Company’s commitment is manifested through the creation of new products, seeking higher environmental sustainability through activities aimed at reducing impacts, monitoring the use of energy resources, involving staff, communicating and building relations with stakeholders.

It is thanks to this effort, and through research into production processes that are increasingly efficient in terms of lowering energy consumption and environmentally harmful emissions, that the Company has developed, in recent years, the innovative and sustainable lines BioVeg, H2O and Yatay, a new generation of materials strongly oriented towards reducing the environmental footprint, certified and constantly evolving, which will be officially launched in 2022.

Coronet S.p.A.’s strategic vision is based on a profound approach to values, matured over more than half a century of activity, that spurs the company to assume the role of promoter of responsible behaviors towards the community and the development of the country, in compliance with the expectations of current and future generations.

Our company has undertaken the writing of its first Sustainability Report for the financial year 2020, and with the second edition for the year 2021, we want to continue to make objective and transparent the objectives we have achieved, the performance we have measured, and the goals we have set for the future. Innovation, Research and Development, respect for the environment, ethics and transparency are the pillars of the strategy with which Coronet S.p.A. intends to best meet future challenges. Particular importance is attached to the Company’s employees in every role and function to whom, on the occasion of the publication of this Sustainability Report, we would like to extend our special thanks.

Future goals

UN Agenda 2023

We want to write the future through the implementation of circularity in production processes and the creation of renewable, increasingly sustainable and zero-impact materials.

As a company, we are aware that we can make a difference and we will concretely implement it by contributing to some specific goals of the 2030 Agenda. The action plan launched by the UN and composed of 17 sustainable development goals aims to break down poverty, fight inequality, in order to foster social and economic development.

One of the main goals that goes in the direction of reducing emissions and combating the environmental impacts generated, is in fact to become a Carbon Neutral company by 2030.
