CHARTER OF VALUES

The SNG group has developed a unique Code to transfer values and responsibilities which meet-up with the company’s culture of the Group, addressed to all internal and external stakeholders which participate in the value chain: both the Governance of employees, suppliers, laboratories and clients, Public Administration and the environment organisations.

Politica di trasparenza e sostenibilità

Crescita, trasparenza e sostenibilità sono ciò in cui vogliamo distinguerci, basando le nostre strategie sulla
convinzione che l’etica e il profitto non possano essere in contrasto, poiché non può esistere uno sviluppo
economico di lungo periodo disgiunto da quello sociale e ambientale.

Reasearch and tracking

The attentive view of the companies of the Group to research innovative processes and guarantee high quality standards, heading towards those          sustainable products which meet the common requirements of  the clients. The management of sustainable materials develops through a tracking system set up by the company, capable to follow and identify the article along the processing cycle right up until the finished product. 

4SUSTAINABILITY

In the second half of 2020 the Group has started the project  4sustainability in cooperation with the consulting company Process Factory according to ZDHC (Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemical)  method, agreed and shared by the most important Luxury Brands. The approach combines and provides distinct methods for risk management and compliance, by integrating environmental management, safety, social liability and sustainability. 

Workers, contractors, suppliers, people who use our product are the main resources and we appreciate their work, listen to them, share knowledge, work harmoniously which is the core of our project.

THE PROJECT 4 SUSTAINABILITY

The incentive of the market and the evaluation of the environmental impact of the working processes of the SNG Group pushed us to look for solutions for a more sustainable production also from the chemical point of view. Sensitivity to environmental issues and the priority aim to protect mankind and the environment, led the Group to face the subject of chemical substances toxic and harmful to health, implementing in the production cycle activities and supervisions with the aim to gradually remove the presence, by applying the guidance of the ZDHC programme (Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemicals). The evaluation of the chemical risk and the holistic approach allow the Group to contribute to reach some of the sustainable development objectives 2030 adopted by the United Nations (SDG’s). In view of the objectives, a management method has been identified and structured in progressive levels of implementation and focused to excellence: 

CHEMICAL MANAGEMENT 4SUSTAINABILITY PROTOCOL

In order to establish an evaluation system of the suppliers by charting and managing the supply chain according to risk classes through the adoption of control plans. The instrument allows us to control the tracking management system in production and to detect the possible actions to improve.

METHOD AND APPLICATION

IN THE COMPANIES OF THE GROUP 

  • Designation of an internal Chemical Manager and system’s managing team

  • Charting and qualification of the supply chain identifying chemical risk categories

  • Information collection from our managing systems to ensure tracking 

  • Involve our suppliers in common objectives, through training, remote assessments and on the spot audits

  • Constant reporting to identify the plan to remove and improve

  • Annual report with Chemical Management KPI highlighting the level of implementation 4sustainability to share with the clients

IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN 

  • Compliance to PRSL (Product Restricted Substances List) 4sustainability to qualify the suppliers of raw

  • Implementation of MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List) by ZDHC (Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemical) for the processes with chemical risk 

  • Collection of Chemical Management KPI from all suppliers 

  • Establish an internal Chemical Management procedure in order to guarantee roles and responsibilities, purchases compliant to internal standard, working processes under control

  • Establish an evaluation system of the suppliers, by charting and managing the supply chain according to risk classes.

  • Charting and risks evaluation – with relative control plans – on raw materials and chemical inventory, working processes and wastewater. 

  • Verify tracking capacity in production and determine possible improvement actions. 

​​

  • Establish instruments to collect and manage data for a constant improvement of the system, with parallel training of the internal staff and of the suppliers.
