Ferragamo is the first company to receive a Silver SI Rating for environmental and social sustainability. This recognition is created by the Italian start-up ARBalzan. The rating is the result of an algorithm that includes all the ESG criteria (environmental, social and governance) recognized internationally. To these, are added the 17 United Nations Sdgs contained in the 2030 Agenda.
Thanks to this precious calculation, the Florentine company is recognized for its commitment and excellence in many of the criteria set out in the 2030 Agenda for sustainability. The positive results undoubtedly include gender equality in the workplace, economic growth, responsible consumption and production, and technological innovation.

“That has been my life’s work: striving to learn to make shoes that always fit and the refusal to put my name to any that do not fit. Therefore please look behind the story of the small, barefoot, unlettered boy who became a famous shoemaker, and seek the pleasure you will obtain from walking well.” – Salvatore Ferragamo⠀ ⠀ These are the final words written by the man himself – immortalized in the preface to his autobiography that contains the tale of a pioneer whose creative spirit remains unparalleled today and who unintentionally bound his story to the world of cinema. This story is explored by the acclaimed Director Luca Guadagnino in “Salvatore, Shoemaker of Dreams”, a new feature-length documentary that will be presented Out of Competition at the 77th Venice Film Festival. #BiennaleCinema2020 #Venezia77 #ShoemakerOfDreams
