Olvea contributes to 15 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) outlined by the United Nations Global Compact. The company also publishes an annual report, OLVEAct Now, that shares all the actions, initiatives and commitments Olvea has made to be an active participant in the environmental and social transition.
Olvea’s Executive Committee says, “For 15 years now, we have chosen to develop sustainable and fully integrated supply chains in the countries of origin of our raw materials. But we are aware that we still need to go further and are committed to improving our impact in our supply chains and our eco-system. In a long-term perspective of transformation, we have now set our sustainable and performance objectives for 2029, the year of Olvea’s centenary—and we will give ourselves the means to achieve them thanks to the commitment of our 286 employees and the support of our customers and partners.”
