SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

SUSTAINABLE COMMUNICATION

Communication through messages aimed at sustainability prompts consumers to adopt a more responsible attitude from a social-environmental viewpoint, less destructive with respect to nature.

SUSTAINABLE SUPPLIES

As part of the Green Mark project, Bortolomiol has implemented a series of initiatives with direct growers in order to optimize their degree of preparation and thus improve and increase the raw materials they provide.

THE PEOPLE

Staff members also play a crucial role in ensuring the success of a company and enabling it to achieve its sustainability goals.

It is in the company’s interest to make sure all those who work for it are healthy and motivated.

Thanks to the winery restructuring, workplace quality has improved, with greater natural light and ventilation.

BORTOLOMIOL WAGERS ON WOMEN

Bortolomiol has always wagered on the work of women. Giuliano’s 4 daughters, who run the firm, make sure that family tradition principles remain intact: absolute quality and strong ties with the surrounding district.

WINE FOR LIFE

For over 10 years now, the firm has been supporting the Comunitá di Sant’Egidio’s “Wine for life” initiative which promotes the DREAM project: the most successful AIDS care program so far in the whole of sub-Saharan Africa. Purchasing the bottles of the Bandarossa limited collection bearing the Wine for Life label, the company contributes towards caring for HIV-positive children and women.

WOMEN’S RIGHTS IN AFRICA

Together with the non-governmental organization Ricerca e Cooperazione, the Bortolomiol women are taking part in the development of a project in northern Benin, in West Africa. A project promoting the training of women using simple knowledge tools that enable them to make better use of the natural resources available in the area, to improve the quality of life for their families and communities with new economic and business prospects.

SPORT AND CULTURE

Bortolomiol has always supported a number of cultural, sports and educational initiatives. In particular, close focus has always been placed on, sports and, over the years, the company has supported an A league Hockey team, skiing teams, various sailing competitions and other sports events.
