Integrated quality environment policy


With this document, the General Management of ODL intends to highlight the guidelines of the Company Policy for quality and environmental protection in order to disseminate and share the targets and involve the interested parties (employees, collaborators, customers, suppliers, public institutions, etc.) in achieving the set goals.

The ODL Management considers as fundamental principles of its corporate strategy:

1 Ensure the satisfaction of Customers and Interested Parties
2 Ensure respect for and protection of the environment
3 Promote safety and health in the workplace
4 Assuming more and more responsibility and awareness regarding ESG issues:

E for ENVIRONMENT: environmental criteria refer to the way in which a company relates to the surrounding natural environment

S for SOCIAL: social criteria focus on human capital, product responsibility, and possibilities and opportunities offered in the social sphere with particular attention to gender equality without any discrimination of any kind, as indicated in the code of conduct drawn up

G for GOVERNANCE: the management criteria concern elements such as ethics, donations, transparency, absence of corruption and extortion in company management

Today’s world requires increasingly sustainable companies, i.e. companies that pay attention to the social and environmental aspects of their business without neglecting their profitability. Sustainable development means generating profit, preserving the environment and natural resources, and respecting all stakeholders’ interests and well-being. To ensure a constant commitment to applying the principles described above and directing activities towards continuous improvement, the company has chosen to adopt and maintain an Integrated Quality-Environment Management System, according to the UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 standards, UNI EN ISO 14001:2015 and according to ESG principles.

To ensure the effectiveness of the Integrated System and optimize its business processes, ODL is committed to making available the necessary organizational, technological, and financial resources in order to:
