Our Society is living an historical moment hallmarked by a deep change, turning from an economy based on geology to an economy based on biology. This revolution, a cultural before an industrial revolution, has to be joined by everyone.
We deem we have to establish synergies with all our stakeholders, both suppliers and customers, in order to be able to implement the change respecting nature and life.
We are committed to go on using raw materials from renewable sources, but not intended for human or animal feeding. We believe that a cascade use of raw materials has to be fostered and we are asking for laws promoting a hierarchy of use of renewable resources.
