CSR commitments

No one works at Carbone 4 by chance. Our team is composed of impassioned and enthusiastic individuals.

Our professional commitment reflects the individual commitment of each member of the team.

We are committed to implementing a series of actions in our premises to reduce our footprint, a process that we’re constantly improving.

We promote initiative-taking, autonomy and continuous training in the team.

Since we consider gender equality to be a fundamental issue, we implemented the Equality reference function 2019.
