STRIVING FOR SUSTAINABILITY
As a cooperative, one of Cefla’s key goals is to ensure the company is handed over securely to future generations.
A key Cefla hallmark is economic sustainability: the statute states, in fact, that at least 50% of balance sheet profits must be ploughed back into the company, a reliable way of steadily increasing the enterprise’s net assets in keeping with its mission of creating value over time.
Furthermore, all working capital is financed by its own capital: this entails a total absence of financial charges on the income statement, allowing the organisation to make investments with extraordinary profitability. Another distinguishing Cefla characteristic is diversification of both businesses and markets.
Sustainability is a goal of ever-increasing importance, one that Cefla aims to achieve by integrating the logic, content and tools that are vital to corporate and organizational procedures. Cefla has, in fact, nominated an internal Sustainability Manager and a Sustainability Team, a group coordinated by the Sustainability Manager that specifically pursues ESG goals.
