Sustainability

Sustainability is a constant
quest for cutting costs whilst
respecting the environment.

Sustainability

Terre Cevico is a company that always considers its terroir and seeks to give it added value.

Sustainability, expressed in all of its facets, becomes a goal towards which to aim for a sector of the economy that is in good health and for the businesses from which it is composed.
Terre Cevico intends to be a part of this group of virtuous producers, and to play a leading role amongst them.

Sustainability is synonymous with total respect during the entire process, which must include the land, the transformation of the grapes, the marketing of the wine, and its comparison and commercialisation.

Sustainabilityenvironmental

A commitment to environmental sustainability is part and parcel of the mission of a cooperative Group such as that of Terre Cevico, whose products have a strong cultural link with the land.
Over the years, the Group’s sensitivity in this regard has grown to the extent of its becoming consolidated practice in its production-related decisions.

The organic projects
BIPUNTOIO

“B.io” is Terre Cevico’s first line of organic wines, but B.io is not only a type of wine, it is a project with its very own philosophy: “b” as in “biologico” (“organic”) and “buono” (“good”); “io” (“I/me”), because whoever chooses to drink these wines is well aware of what they are doing, they have a great deal of self-respect and wish to do good for the sake of the society and environment in which they live.

It is a project that has to do with sustainability on an absolute scale.
The member-growers, thanks to the human resources (agronomists and oenologists) placed at their disposal by Terre Cevico, have the possibility to give added value to their production, often grown in vineyards that are limited in size, thus obtaining sufficient income for them to not have to leave the countryside and so give a future to the new generations.

Sustainability is synonymous with respect for the 360 ° supply chain, which must involve the land, transformation, narration, comparison and marketing.

Consumption and
waste management

Within the scope of policies for ecologically sustainable production and consumption, a reduction at source is undoubtedly a fundamental choice for the management of waste materials: for this reason, Terre Cevico has adopted systems for filtering and stabilising its wines that call for less use of filtration media and less production of residual materials from such processes.

Sustainabilityeconomic

These are the significant figures from the 2017/18 accounts of Terre Cevico, which confirm its place as one of the nation’s foremost wine-producing companies: profits of 625,000 Euros, with exports that have grown to 42.9 million Euros out of a consolidated turnover for the whole of the extended group (Terre Cevico, le Romagnole, Cantina dei Colli Romagnoli, Consorzio le Romagnole due, Due Tigli, Rocche Malatestiane, Sprint Distillery, Winex, Tenuta MAs Selina, Montresor and Medici Emote & Figli) of 164 million Euros (up 65 million compared to 2011, i.e. an increase of 64%).

The prospect of
determining
added value

The production and distribution of added value offers a way of measuring the distribution of wealth – produced by a business when it carries out its activities – towards those who have dealings with it, thus highlighting the economic effect (or that which can be expressed in economic terms) that the company’s operations have produced on the principal categories of stakeholders.

Sustainabilitysocial

Wine encompasses stories and the way they are told, traditions and places, but also our identity as producers.

And one of Terre Cevico’s major commitments is to produce wine while, at the same time, keeping alive these fundamental values: terroir, history, culture and art.

Wine today represents economics and culture, nature and wellbeing, festiveness and the everyday.

Sustainability and
research

Terre Cevico has always taken part in initiatives that support scientific research and the academic world in general, which involve bodies oriented towards study and experimentation in viticulture and oenology (Astra, Crpv, Cav, the “Persolino” State Institute for Agriculture and the Environment in Faenza, the “P. Artusi” Catering College in Riolo Terme, the “B. Scappi” Catering College in Castel San Pietro, the University of Bologna, and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia).

Welfare and
employment

Welfare In the mid-1990s, Terre Cevico put into effect (one of the first companies in its area to do so) the SAO (Variable Salary according to Objectives), well aware that such rewards-based forms of remuneration develop greater integration between a company and those who work for it, with the goal of giving them shared objectives; this instrument is constantly being refined, with the aim of making it efficient and effective in view of changing economic and production conditions.

“Sustainability is not a principle but rather a necessary path that each one of us must take in order to protect man and the world in which he lives.”
