Corporate Administrative Liability Law 231

Laviosa Chimica Mineraria has decided to adopt an organization and management model aimed at preventing the commission of offences envisaged by Legislative Decree No. 231/2001. Implementation of the Model is part of the company’s global vision, which concerns all aspects of economic ethics, based on the conviction that it is morally necessary and economically productive to ensure optimal conditions of correctness and transparency in management of the company’s business. The company’s policy is very attentive to its image and the expectations of stakeholders (employees, the local community, institutions and customers). This initiative stands alongside others such as SA 8000 certification, voluntary balance sheet audit and particular attention to workplace safety and respect for the environment. For the purpose of setting out the code of conduct that the company recognizes as its own, and which all employees, managers and directors, or all those who come into contact with the company are called on to comply with, the company adopts the attached Code of Ethics.

Quality Management System

Laviosa Chimica Mineraria has implemented a Quality Management System in compliance with UNI EN ISO 9001 standard since 2000. In recent years it has particularly developed the ability to work in teams to resolve problems with the involvement of personnel, and the sharing of ideas. In addition, it has focused on the cultural development of staff in more operative areas so that working “with quality” becomes common practice starting from the bottom of the organization. In addition, the operating methods required by feedstuff industry standards have been extended to all departments in order to increase the level of control and provide customers with greater guarantees.

Environmental Management System

Beginning in 2004, Laviosa Chimica Mineraria deemed it necessary to obtain Environmental Certification for the Santa Maria Mine in Masullas, Sardinia. The cat and small pet litter available in large-scale retain chains throughout Italy and also abroad is produced in the Sardinian plant, which acquires most of its raw material from the Masullas mine. Guaranteeing respect for the environment in every stage of excavation and transport of the bentonite, but above all final clean-up of the area, have always been essential elements of the company’s strategy.
