Sustainability Report

A path of constant improvement.




The Sustainability Report represents the communication tool for the annual results of the company’s sustainability path to its stakeholders. The drafting of the sustainability report is the result of the collaboration of all company departments and will become, in coming years, the instrument through which the social and environmental performance of the whole Lavazza group can be monitored and evaluated on a global scale.
