“The task that we are called fulfil is
to contribute to make this world a better place,
for us and for future generations.”
Alessandro Mezzalira – CEO
FITT’s products do an important but often invisible job: they are solutions that serve the environment and people, developed with cutting-edge technology to reduce their environmental impact.
In FITT’s vision, being a responsible company means transforming its business model to achieve an ideal balance, with the objective of creating economic value and having a positive impact on the planet and on people’s lives.
FITT is a Benefit Company, and in addition to the object of making a profit, it has added in its statute the public and official commitment of a positive impact on society and the biosphere, operating in a sustainable and transparent manner.
On 25 September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly, attended by more than 150 leaders from around the world, adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which consists of 17 objectives – the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
From the agenda of the 17 goals identified by the United Nations, FITT has selected 7 goals on which to take tangible action, in line with the UN 2030 targets.
In an era of change and great challenges, FITT, like many other companies all over the world, makes an important contribution to sustainable development.
Investing in innovation, scientifically measuring the impact of its products and adopting a supply chain approach that minimises negative effects throughout the whole product life cycle, is what enables FITT to create an increasingly sustainable business model.
FITT is not just a manufacturing company, it’s a business community: a thousand people who live and work together every day, with shared principles and values. Participative culture is at the basis of company activities, because nowadays a company exists and defines its future through the participation and commitment of all its members.
For FITT, doing business today means placing oneself in an open and active relationship with the territory in which one operates: no longer solely concentrating on making a profit but also embracing a logic of value generation, which cannot overlook the social and environmental value it produces.
To be successful, the sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and the civil society.
These inclusive partnerships, built on principles and values, a common vision and shared goals that put people and the planet at the centre, are needed at global, regional, national and local level.
FITT is a multinational company with several manufacturing locations in Europe and commercial locations around the world, who has chosen to also follow international standards by joining the United Nations Global Compact.
The Global Compact is an international network that brings together governments, businesses, United Nations agencies, trade unions and civil society organizations, to promote a sustainable global economy, respectful of human and labour rights, environmental protection and fight against corruption.
In FITT, we show strong awareness and the biggest sense of responsibility for our work and our impact, as a company and as a collective of people.
For FITT, the concept of responsibility is based on the following principles:
Transparency in measuring and in communicating the impact of its products to all its stakeholders
Interdependence planet Earth is a system that can be changed better and faster through chain synergies
Innovation to create better products, better performing and with less impact than those of yesterday
Sustainability has always been in FITT’s DNA. But it was in 2019, with the celebration of our 50th anniversary, that it became part of the Vision of the Group, who decided to make it a central factor in the strategies and choices for the future of the company. In 2020, FITT issues its first sustainability report.
