Respecting man and the environment, SOGESCA has been committed to sustainability since its inception in 1986, when this word was not used as much as it is today.
Indeed, SOGESCA’s managers and engineers have always been driven by the belief that sustainability is an opportunity as well as a necessity. In 1992, our company was among the very first to immediately adopt the new approaches that emerged from the first UN conference in Rio de Janeiro.
Today sustainability has become an essential element also in business: finance and leaders of the production chains are making it a primary selection factor.

In SOGESCA we follow the MARC approach of Etifor, a spin-off of the University of Padua specialized in the environmental field. MARC means:
We reduce the risks of climate change
We support charismatic projects
SOGESCA’s primary goal in terms of sustainability is to become a zero impact (“carbon positive”) company by 2026.
