This means looking beyond the circle of our direct reports to pay attention to all those who are operating on our behalf, regardless of the type of contract that binds them to the company.
Since 2009, this commitment has translated into the certification of all member companies in compliance with the Global GAP standard, which defines Good Agricultural Practices to minimise the impact on the environment and ensure a responsible approach towards worker safety and animal welfare.
Since 2020, the standard has been integrated with an additional module known as GRASP (GLOBALG.A.P Risk Assessment on Social Practices), which is focused on the social aspects related to worker activity in agriculture to assess the risk of improper practices.
Casalasco also adheres to the United Nations Global Compact Management model, as well as Sedex, which is one of the major organisations for the promotion of ethical trade throughout the world.
Consistent with these choices, Casalasco is open to audits by customers in line with the SMETA scheme (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) and uses the same requirements for the qualification of suppliers and partners.
