- Resources: reduce energy consumption, eliminate the waste of water, abolish non-recyclable waste.
- Society: respect basic human needs, guarantee safety at the workplace.
- Land: keep the soil healthy, guarantee crop healthiness, protect the ecosystem, preserve the natural landscape.
- Production: comply with sustainability parameters, marginalize the use of fossil fuels, drastically reduce wasting.

The Division is committed to achieving the objectives set down by the Goodness Code with regard to two basic macro-areas:
