Kerakoll has presented its first impact report for the year of 2021, which shares with stakeholders the company’s results in terms of sustainability as well as its goals for the next year.
The contents of the report are divided into nine sections addressing the company’s commitments to the environment and people: green building, product rating, innovative processes, strategic partnerships, scientific research, security, well-being of employees, growth processes and civic engagement.
“With this first impact report, we want to set Kerakoll’s commitment to sustainable growth down in black and white”, says Fabio Sghedoni, vice chair of Kerakoll. “In 2021 we achieved excellent results thanks to the contribution of everybody at Kerakoll, and this makes us feel even more strongly our responsibility to them and to the communities in which we operate. Sustainability has always been our compass, a guide for our way of doing business: from today we are adding another piece to the puzzle to safeguard the future well-being of society and the environment”.
In 2021 the Kerakoll Group achieved total consolidated revenue of €603.5 million, a 33.5% increase over its results in 2020. Italy was the company’s most significant market, in part thanks to the implementation of government measures to encourage construction.
However, the group also confirmed its continued intention to grow in international markets, registering increased turnover in the countries where it operates production facilities, including India, Spain, Greece, UK, France, Portugal, Poland and Brazil.
“Growth in 2021 has been particularly satisfactory, both at national and international level”, says Andrea Remotti, Kerakoll’s chief executive officer. “Inauguration of the new factory in Portugal and above all transformation into a Benefit Company are the elements that have been the greatest features of a year that, once again, was better than the preceding one in terms of results. Our plan for 2022 is to continue to grow, guided as always by sustainability and in full awareness of the elements of uncertainty connected to current world political and economic scenarios.”
