Supply Chain

We have always chosen our suppliers carefully, and we know them in person.

“We have always known our suppliers in person and we share with them the passion for things ‘done well’. Without them, it would be impossible to generate the excellence that stems from the enthusiasm of those working alongside us in creating a sustainability guideline and in giving value to the project for a better world”.
