"From day one, Gelato's vision has been to rethink production. Gelato's curated global marketplace is an important tool for replacing centralized mass production. We believed then, and we continue to believe, that personalized items should be produced locally and on demand. Sustainability has been an integral part of our business model since its inception. Together we will be able to rethink production for the benefit of people and the planet."
Gelato's approach to sustainability is to have a positive impact and take environmental, social, and economical responsibility, including governance and anti-corruption. In 2020 we defined our sustainability strategy based on stakeholder dialogues and analysis to define what matters the most for our stakeholders and Gelato, and where we can have the greatest impact. With the foundation of our sustainability strategy we have recently updated our sustainability ambition for 2030, and set 2025 objectives.
Gelato's sustainability strategy and prioritized materiality aspects are divided into three overall strategic areas: Environment: reduce environmental impact; Social: positive impact on people; and Governance: act responsibly and support eight Sustainable Development Goals.
