“There is a red thread that tightly welds the future of the economy according to new parameters: industrial humanism”. Thus writes Carlo Marroni in Il Sole 24 Ore, presenting the second Forum on Sustainability that the 24 Ore publishing group organised together with the Vatican. Words that would certainly please Brunello Cucinelli, and that introduce the novelty of this edition. Namely: the Sustainable Enterprise Award. To win it, along with 11 other green business experiences: Sicit. In other words, the Vicenza-based company that is the emblem of an evolved and evolutionary way of interpreting the circularity of the tanning industry.
The Forum on Sustainability (held at the Augustinianum Congress Centre in Rome) included the novelty of an award to valorise “Italian SMEs that have made sustainability a fundamental key to tackling and overcoming the crises of recent years”. “It is an important moment,” says Gruppo 24 Ore CEO Mirja Cartia d’Asero, “of comparison in the search for the balance between enterprise and development”. A balance of which Sicit is the architect and witness.
The Vatican rewards Sicit
“The motivation for the award reads: “Sicit, from Vicenza, is specialised in the recovery of tanning residues and their transformation into biostimulants for agriculture and retardants for the gypsum industry (…). In 2021, it defined six policy lines in the areas of sustainability, environmental protection, human rights, health and safety, diversity and anti-corruption”.
