Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), considered as a strategic orientation, encourages the company to adopt an ethical, responsible and socially, economically and environmentally sustainable development model.
The Venetian and Italian supply chain
From the very beginning, at L&L we have based our organisational model on a fundamental value: the development and maintenance of a local supply chain in Veneto and Italy. This choice allows us to actively participate in maintaining and advancing the economic fabric of the region and country we work in, in addition to maintaining a high product quality level and reducing transport emissions.
We are people who work with commitment and dedication every day: on our products and services, and on maintaining a healthy and respectful work environment. We pay particular attention to wellbeing in our working environment, through programmes dedicated to ensuring a good work/life balance, improving internal communication and developing team spirit.
Our commitment also extends to the young students in the province of Vicenza: by participating in dual-education programmes, which alternate school with work, and focusing on placing young people in work after they have qualified, we give them the opportunity to grow and find their way in the working world.
Partnership relationships with local non-profit organisations
In 2017, together with other companies from Vicenza, and local non-profit organisations, we took part in a training workshop financed by the Veneto Region through the European Social Fund entitled (English translation) “Enterprises and the region: innovative models of social and regional development” within the framework of “Responsabilmente – Promuovere l’innovazione sociale e trasmettere l’etica” (responsibly – promoting social innovation and transmitting ethics), the Veneto Region’s call for proposals that finances projects for the adoption of CSR models. The workshop’s goal was to collectively design projects addressing emerging regional needs, and its first product was the creation of a summer boot camp for 11- to 19-year-olds, where they could learn about the opportunities offered by the economic fabric in the Alto Vicentino region. The camp gave them the chance to get involved by developing their skills and competences.
Because of our participation in the projects arising from the Veneto Region’s call for proposals, we were among the companies into which the Universities of Padua, Verona and Venice conducted their research. This research project recorded the CSR practices in the Veneto companies aimed at spreading best practices. The results of the project were presented at the Strategy Innovation Forum 2018 held at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. To find out more click here
