Corporate Policy

The DIGE General Management, defines and approves the "Company Policy" that documents the objectives and commitments made, according to the company's strategies towards Customers, the Market, the Environment and more generally all Interested Parties, so that the performance of the Management System is implemented, maintained and improved, regulatory requirements are guaranteed and any voluntary agreements signed by the Company with the Interested Parties. The Management System, as described and defined in this document, enables compliance with the commitments made by the DIGE General Management, which considers the participation of the entire Workforce in the implementation of the Management System to be decisive, so as to achieve full Customer Satisfaction, Interested Parties, sustainable development of the Environmental Management System and consolidation of the Company's Image in the market. Through the Company Policy it is intended to emphasize the Company's willingness to transpose, achieve and maintain compliance with the mandatory regulations and more generally with all the requirements that the Company subscribes to (voluntary agreements) in relation to environmental aspects directly or indirectly related to the organization, defining a reasonable level of performance for the Management System, aiming at its constant improvement and preparing internal and external communication appropriate to the reality and the Company's needs.

Through the Corporate Policy, the DIGE General Management communicates, inside and outside the Company, that it intends to operate with efficient and transparent methods and systems that guarantee the continuous detection of the expectations of the Interested Parties and the evolution of the Management System that ensures its implementation, in terms of continuous improvement, towards said expectations. The methods through which the communication of said Policy is ensured are outlined below. The Policy also descends from the consideration of the environmental aspects and impacts defined in the document Environmental Analysis and its periodic updates established by Procedure PA001, and is coherently integrated with the Company Policy so much so that, by the precise will of the DIGE General Management, it is formalized in a single summary document, deferring to specific Programs and Plans the objectives descended from it. The ""objectives"" identified by the DIGE General Management are listed below and are disseminated by it to all personnel so that they learn them and pursue them within the scope of their responsibilities and competencies. DIGE's General Management is committed to providing the necessary investments and spreading the corporate culture at all levels because it believes that corporate operating results and respect for the Environment can only be achieved through the commitment and professionalism of all those who directly and indirectly participate in the Company's activities and life.
