06-05-2021

The Group has set 8 long-term goals for itself to strengthen its sustainability commitment.

RDM Group is reinforcing its commitment to sustainability by launching its Sustainability Plan for 2020-2030. These 8 ambitious but realistic long-term goals are of great relevance to our business and society in general, and RDM Group believes that pursuing them will lead to the achievement of other environmental, social, ethical and economic objectives. Our business strategy includes in its very DNA the concept of sustainability, with the awareness and willingness to build an economy in harmony with the environment and society, based on circular economy.

 

The goals we have set are consistent with the Group’s vision of offering its Stakeholders a long-term partnership centred on a sustainable development agenda. In the interest of transparency towards its Stakeholders, the Group has decided to publicly disclose its plan.

 

“Making our objectives public means being assessed over time on the basis of specific and measurable parameters,” comments Michele Bianchi, CEO of RDM Group. At the same time, we believe that companies like ours, with a long and positive track record in terms of sustainability, must lead the way in setting ambitious goals. We are aware of the challenges ahead, but we have confidence in the Group’s capabilities and, above all, in its people to meet and surpass them”.
