OLVEA launches its new CSR performance report, OLVEAct Now!
OLVEA publishes its fourth CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) performance report,
which presents its achievements over the past year and its vision for a fair and sustainable future.
2029 Ambition: Striving for People and Nature
Approaching its 100th anniversary in 2029, the company has strengthened its CSR strategy, OLVEAct Now, by collectively defining its ambition for 2029, with new goals and the engagement of all its employees. This ambition “Striving for People & Nature” revolves around three pillars: People, Product, Planet, which represent a set of challenges for the next six years.
Given the current climate emergency, OLVEA has particularly focused its efforts on accelerating the decarbonization of its activities. The company’s overall CSR commitment was reflected not only in the training of 100% of employees in the Climate Fresk, but also in the significant actions carried out over the past year, such as:
- People: Achieving a score of 92/100 on the Gender Equality Index, demonstrating its commitment to parity.
- Product: Supplying 100% pure, adulteration-free oils through a rigorous quality policy based on the most demanding international standards and norms.
- Planet: Implementing an energy-saving plan to reduce the CO2 emissions of our Scope 1 and 2, following the energy audit conducted in our eco-refining unit.
