Joining the UN Global Compact and Global Goals

Sustainability is based on continuous evolution and an awareness of one’s own limits, strengths, and priorities. Listening to and engaging with stakeholders are key elements in the path to forging shared values across the entire supply chain. With this awareness, Lavazza has welcomed the global-scale principles of sustainability established by the United Nations.

Lavazza and the UN Global Compact

There are many teenagers in Calcutta who live in slums; unhealthy urban districts that lack the most basic sanitation and sanitary facilities. Lavazza and Save the Children have committed themselves to creating opportunities for the most marginalized adolescents from degraded areas, saving them from conditions of abuse and exploitation, with the aim of introducing them into the world of employment in a sustainable way. The project has allowed us to reach more than 101 vulnerable adolescents and provide 240 hours of training and subsequent follow-up employment support.


Lavazza and the Sustainable Development Goals

Lavazza is committed to pursuing the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainable innovation, the fight against climate change, and commitment to responsible production and consumption create a virtuous circle. Not only do they benefit the environment and society as a whole, but they also improve production cycle efficiency, reduce waste, curb anti-economic processes, while also benefiting companies’ margins.

For Lavazza, these principles are non-negotiable, not only because our product comes from the transformation of raw, plant-origin materials, potentially threatened by climate change, but above all because the global responsibilities involved in these goals outweigh economic interests and lead the way to a more ethical and sustainable world.
