Ratti assumed the status of a Benefit Company

Ratti’s sustainable strategy has always been based on the constant enhancement of the craftsmanship of its professionals, as well as on investments in technology and research with the primary aim of being able to operate in a responsible, sustainable way.

In compliance with this policy, on May 17th 2022, through a resolution of the extraordinary board meeting, Ratti assumed the status of a Benefit Company. Being a Benefit Company means not only meeting the legal obligations relating to the environmental impact and the protection of the workers, but also adopting those responsible behaviors, which have a positive impact on society, territories and, last but not least, on the environment, always placing attention to the value transmission to future generations, with the awareness that this choice will represent an important moment of growth and responsibility for us and for all those who believe in Ratti.

Our commitment is aimed at:

  • Contribute to the protection of the environment, spreading a culture of attention to it, as well as promoting the development of an environmental management system for the organization.
  • Promote training and growth of the skills and potential of the individual, together with the development of a corporate social responsibility system adopted by the company.
  • Promote social and cultural initiatives, also through collaboration with businesses, communities, institutions and associations on topics of mutual interest in the field of innovation and research.

Commitment, ethics and sustainability are part of our history.  Becoming a Benefit Company strengthens Ratti’s commitment to responsible growth, demonstrating that, for us, sustainability is a vision that guides decisions and behaviors, a concrete commitment that strengthens confidence in the future towards the creation of a sustainable and responsible system.

 

 

Ratti collaborates with the association Go5

Go5, a non-profit association founded by a group of former patients of the Cancer Institute of Milan, has as its main objective to finance projects and initiatives to accompany and follow the patients of the institute, helping them to solve the problems that could arise with the disease and trying to make their path lighter.

Among the projects espoused by Go5 this year, there is “Il Filo d’Arianna”: an initiative conceived in collaboration with a team of psychologists and oncologists from the National Cancer Institute and dedicated to women affected by metastatic cancer at breast, to help them find the balance necessary to continue to lead a normal life.

Ratti actively participated in the project by making available its own fabrics that were used by the inmates of the high security department of Vigevano in collaboration with Caritas to make bags, turbans and other accessories designed by Helen Field. The proceeds were donated to the association.

The V edition of the Sustainability Report is online

Our fifth sustainability report is a document that represents a transparent report, created according to a model that aims to highlight the high quality of the relationships existing between our Group and its stakeholders, as part of a context that finds concreteness in the economic, social and environmental aspects.

By publishing this new sustainability report, we would like to underline how this document has become, also from a cultural point of view, a significant moment because it describes how the results and initiatives are the result of teamwork.

As for the previous editions, the new balance sheet will be available on our website as well as through a browsable version and a downloadable pdf version.

R domus: the new homedecor collection

On the occasion of the XXIX edition of Proposte, the Ratti Domus design office was inspired by nature inspired verses of Japanese haiku. The compositions, as well as new fabrics, appear simple at first sight, drawing strength from beauty and colours of the gardens in different seasons.

After a period of darkness, this is a creativity reinterpretation, where nature is on the precipice of rebirth.   Between linen and cotton, each print composes new chromatic values to form an exclusive vibrant range of colour. If haiku can be translated as “the colour of the verse,” the same is true for the colours of the new fabrics: bright red joins aqua green, while pink melts in orange among dense brushstrokes of purple as evidence of that richness. The ability to grasp the intimate beauty and fantasy can only be found in nature such as in these combinations.

Each Ratti Domus fabric, just like a haiku, has immediate, natural beauty, but, in fact, is the result of profound inspiration as well as a long and intense work.  These amazing designs represent refinement and elegance in all its forms. The continuous technological innovation combined with style and design are seen in both the weaving and in the printing phase.  This has allowed us to obtain decisive progress in the fabrics technically, making them more versatile thanks to a combination of performance and comfort without compromising style.

In this garden, the new Ratti Domus collection represents a cultured reflection, not only in sustainable materials, but also in the concept of design as a message of positivity and optimism towards the future.
