Corporate Social Responsibility

In planning its strategies, the IMA Group takes account of the economic, social and environmental impact of its operations, adhering to the principles of sustainable growth and of Corporate Social Responsibility.

Letter of the Chairman

Dear Readers,
2019 was another year of growth for IMA S.p.A., with revenue of 1,595.5 million euros and approximately 6,200 employees operating in 45 production sites in Italy and around the world. These considerations on the positive results achieved by our Group in 2019 come at a time of global emergency that sees all of us making every effort to get through it together.

Our packaging machines help in the production processes of the food and pharmaceutical industries, which are of vital importance for the population in general. IMA is required to perform activities that are an integral part of the food and pharmaceutical supply chains, guaranteeing its customers the necessary assistance and, at the same time, maximum safety for all their workers, especially those engaged in the front line of production processes.

CSR according to IMA

Economic Sustainability

IMA’s strategy aims to create profit to remunerate its shareholders, but also economic value for all of its stakeholders. This is based on the primary objective of IMA’s business: end-user satisfaction.

Continuous investment in technology and constant improvement in the quality and reliability of products allowed IMA to open new foreign branches, create joint ventures with other industry players and partnerships in the academic and scientific field; in this way, IMA is able to serve its end-users more and more quickly and efficiently, obtaining a competitive advantage.

Social Sustainability

Professional growth, quality of the work environment and collective well-being are all part of industry’s responsibility towards society. IMA is committed to ensuring them through training, prevention and investment in the local territory.

Professional and human know-how and skills form a heritage that the Group intends to develop. Thanks to a management team that is sensitive to the problems of society and the development of culture, IMA also supports various local initiatives and international projects.

Environmental Sustainability

Energy management, carbon footprint, proper waste disposal are just some of IMA’s programmes to protect environmental resources in Italy and the world.

Even though IMA’s business is non-polluting and has a limited impact on the environment, every effort is made to minimise any impact that may derive from the production cycle.

IMA CSR Report addresses the need to communicate a responsible path, made of sustainable conduct, practices and products, which the Company initiated several years ago

Governance and Ethics

Underlying IMA’s sustainability policy is transparent governance, which the Group wants to apply when managing the impact of its decisions and activities.

Transparency is understood as being towards all stakeholders and should inspire socially responsible conduct that leads to sustainable development.

IMA was one of the first Italian companies in the industry to have a Code of Ethics. It defines the ethical and social responsibilities of stakeholders and the rules of conduct that those who work for the Group and on its behalf have to comply with.

The Packaging Valley

The advanced mechanics and industrial automation cluster of Emilia-Romagna has strong roots: great passion and an in-depth understanding of packaging, automation and engineering in general has given rise in Emilia-Romagna to a network of companies dedicated to advanced engineering. Often they are born from one another, carving out their own specific niche and helping to forge a well-defined territorial identity, thanks to the exchange of ideas and transfer of draftsmen and engineers from one company to another. The existence of many specialist schools in the area also facilitates the generational renewal of technicians, assuring the continuity of skills.

Environment and Safety

IMA has established an internal control and risk management system to monitor the main risks and to ensure that the company is run in a way that is sound, fair and consistent with the goals that it has set itself.

IMA has management systems that have been certified by independent third parties. In particular, IMA SpA has ISO 14001 certification for its Environmental Management System. GIMA SpA and Corazza have OHSAS 18001 certification for their Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, as confirmed by IMA SpA.
