Equalitas and Industria Felix
Montelvini can boast of being the custodian of the vineyards located in Asolo’s surrounding hills, where the rarest and most exclusive denomination of Prosecco is produced. This year, the company has been awarded with the Equalitas Certification of Sustainability given by the CSQA Certification Body, and the Industria Felix Prize – “L’Italia che compete” (Italy that competes), which was announced by Sole 24 Ore on the occasion of the award ceremony held at the Luiss Guido Carli University in Rome. Montelvini is one of the first companies in Italy to obtain the Equalitas Certification and is among only eight Italian wine companies to achieve the Industria Felix Prize.
In order to obtain the Equalitas Certification, companies must prove they have complied with the standards set out in three areas: environmental sustainability (carbon footprint and water footprint), social sustainability for employees and stakeholders (good winery and production practices, respect and support for the local community), economic sustainability (good business and economic practices, as well as rigorous management control); while the Industria Felix Prize “L’Italia che compete” was given – following the examination of the financial statements of 650 thousand companies throughout Italy – to companies displaying the best performance in terms of management, reliability and financial sustainability.
The three pillars targeted by Equalitas Certification are constantly monitored by Montelvini, which has always proved to be sensitive to, and respectful of the territory in which it operates, as well as towards the community and the work of its employees.
Montelvini’s greatest wish is that its wines benefit the territory.
