Environmental protection and sustainability
The territory in which the company was established is the center of Oikos philosophy: the company has always believed that each business needs to have a social relevance in the environment in which it operates. Therefore, the company manufactures its safety doors paying a careful and rigorous attention to the entrepreneurial policy.
The protection of the surrounding environment takes place throughout the entire supply chain of the product: from the selection of raw materials to the logistics, according to the concepts of sustainability and environmental compatibility, and also through the full respect for people who work in the same, thanks to a peaceful corporate climate.
Respect for people
This results in continuous efforts to promote cultural, sports and local associations as well as non-work events, promoting ongoing training in the workplace. Moreover, for more than 10 years, the cooperation with the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice and with the University of Padua has been going on, with the aim of continuously improving the corporate performance, applying academic research to the operational reality.
All corporate decisions, from strategic to operational ones, are taken with the utmost attention to the concept of social responsibility and territorial protection; respect for people and the environment is a sign of a high ethical profile that the Oikos brand wants to embody, guaranteeing seriousness and responsibility.
