2030 Agenda and the Ceramic Industry. 55 cross-cutting projects
The Italian ceramic industry can also inspire and support sustainable development actions addressing the 17 Goals and 169 targets at both a sectoral and individual company level.
In early 2019, Confindustria Ceramica commissioned Focus Lab to conduct the first sector Review with the aim of highlighting the main actions that have been adopted and are already consistent with various SDGs.
The first quantitative type Review identified a total of 55 significant and voluntary projects, initiatives and practices (i.e. those that go beyond legal obligations) developed by the sector in recent years with a cross-cutting approach.
The 55 selected projects contribute to achieving 9 of the 17 SDGs.
Most significantly, these include commitments for implementing Goal 12 (Responsible consumption and production) with 22 practices or projects, Goal 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) with 7 projects, and Goal 8 (Decent work and economic growth) with 6 initiatives.
One of the first of its kind in Italy, this sector Review provides a qualitative assessment of the Italian Ceramic Industry with two underlying goals.
The first is to determine the main sustainable development actions completed and in progress within the sector with respect to a range of issues (Green Management, Health and Safety, green product certifications, education and cultural events) and towards various key stakeholder groups including customers, architects, influencers, employees, suppliers, the public administration, regulatory authorities, research institutions and sales promotion agencies.
The second goal is to draw inspiration from the SDGs and identify new areas of development and actions for continuous improvement and integrated sustainability, targets for individual companies and the sector as a whole, evaluation metrics and a vision and profile of companies that create local and global value.
