“THE PATH OF GOOD PRACTICES: DOING GOOD TO DO GOOD”.
VENICA&VENICA’S FIRST SUSTAINABILITY REPORT PRESENTED AT VINITALY 2019
The first Sustainability Report of Venica&Venica (Winegrowers since 1930), a leading company in the Friuli Venezia Giulia wine sector, was presented today at Vinitaly 2019.
In the Friuli-Venezia Giulia (ERSA) pavilion, Ornella Venica, head of corporate communications, Ettore Capri, university lecturer at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Piacenza and “creator” of the V.I.V.A. project with the Ministry of the Environment, and Marco Tonni, agronomist and head of the BIOPASS Project, were at the presentation.
“A JOURNEY THAT TELLS A STORY, CONTAINS A MISSION AND OFFERS VALUES TO BE TRANSMITTED”.
In dialogue with writer Elena Commessatti, Ornella Venica passionately recounted the motivations that led to the drafting of a Sustainability Report, of which Venica&Venica is a pioneer in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
“The Sustainability Report is the realisation that we work to protect the earth and in relationship with the community,” Ornella Venica began. “It is a declaration of identity and responsibility: Today’s actions are in fact the result of a history that comes from the past and are a commitment to the future.”
With the story of ‘The Path of Good Practices: DOING GOOD FOR GOOD’, Venica&Venica presents itself as the virtuous example of a small company. Through the tool of the Balance Sheet, it recounts its path of sustainability handed down through the various generations, accounting for the results achieved and declaring its commitment for the future of doing good to do good. The Sustainability Report document can be viewed after this article and is now also a printed book (preface by Carlo Cambi).
“The Sustainability Report,” says Ornella Venica emotionally, “is a human, technical and entrepreneurial journey that tells a story, contains a mission and offers values to be transmitted.”
“WHY DO WE DO ALL THIS?”
“The parameters to be respected are yes technical,” she continues, “but the difference is made by the heart and ‘walking the vineyards’ as Luigi Veronelli taught us.”
An engaging tale this one by Venica, which through the key words – awareness, responsibility and sharing – leads one to learn about the good practices of a company that has to do with “a gift”.
“Why do we do all this?” he concludes his speech. “We have received the earth as a gift and we have the responsibility to transfer it intact to future generations.”
