Not just a goal, but an intrinsic and distinctive commitment in every aspect of our daily operations.

Gesteco embraces sustainability as a fundamental pillar of its mission and corporate purpose. 

The sustainable approach is the common thread that guides our strategic decisions, the design of our operations, and our interactions with all stakeholders. We are aware of the crucial importance of mitigating the environmental impact of our activities and strive to implement solutions that promote environmental, social, and economic sustainability. 

In the development of our business, we invest in innovative technologies and processes to reduce our environmental footprint, adopt responsible resource management practices, and actively collaborate with local communities to promote sustainable initiatives. 

We are actively dedicated to raising awareness and inspiring others to follow our path towards a more environmentally conscious and respectful corporate management, as the major (climate, global, and economic) changes we are witnessing require companies to renew themselves deeply. Gesteco wants to have a decisive role as an agent of change and for this reason, in 2020, it created Beeability®.


As suggested by its name, which is formed by the combination of several words of English origin, with this project we wanted to create a group of people who take the industriousness of the bee as a model, putting their abilities at the service of companies, to enable them to adapt their environmental impacts to make them more sustainable.

The Beeability project is managed by an internal team with cross-functional expertise, whose task is to outline a company's path towards energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. The approach used is scientific and innovative. The Beeability team plays a central role in the organization, fostering close collaboration across all areas of the company, as well as between the company and the external environment.

Beeability's services are not confined to the value chain of the Gruppo Luci companies, but extend along the various supply chains through proactive stakeholder engagement.


The Sustainability Report

In order to develop the culture of sustainability, it is necessary to define a pragmatic path, built on the basis of facts and impact measurement, in continuous interaction with stakeholders. Convinced that this is the key to our journey, we have drawn up our first Sustainability Report.

This document reflects the commitment made to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy, aware of the responsibility to report and communicate our journey.

The regulatory landscape is constantly evolving, and the policies and strategies of the European Union urge us to innovate and turn challenges into opportunities for the development of the business, to the benefit of the environment, the territory, and the communities.

We believe that transparency in communicating our progress and objectives related to sustainability is essential to engage stakeholders, inspire trust, and demonstrate real commitment over time to more sustainable practices.


The 2022 Sustainability Report focused on two main objectives:

  • consolidating the internal culture by placing sustainability reporting at the center, thus recognizing its strategic importance in revealing improvement opportunities aimed at creating value;
  • telling our reality in an accessible language, considering the complexity of the sector and the organization, mainly active in the environmental and industrial construction fields. We paid particular attention to highlighting our virtuous role in giving new life to waste, transforming it into precious resources.

The Report describes the complexity of our activities: Gesteco is, in fact, a multifaceted organization dedicated to addressing the various implications that production and industrial processes can have on the surrounding environment. We are involved not only in managing special waste but also in controlling industrial discharges, atmospheric emissions, and environmental noise. Additionally, we contribute to redeveloping disused industrial sites and areas where the environment has been compromised.

The preparation of the Report allowed us to step up and anticipate future regulatory reporting obligations, as foreseen by the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).

The Achieved Results

The phase of environmental data collection has been very challenging, considering the complexity of multiple sites and the interconnection between activities. However, we have sought to highlight our transformation processes, showing the main incoming and outgoing flows.

The Balance has also highlighted current commitments, including investments in renewable energies, the use of recycled plastic for packaging aggregates, and awareness and training activities in the environmental, safety, and sustainability fields, carried out both internally and externally.

Looking to the future, we aim to further improve our indicators, integrating them with other frameworks to promote a circular approach in our processes, especially in waste treatment.

The Next Steps

We have outlined a clear path of sustainability with short, medium, and long-term objectives. Among the most important actions, there is the implementation of a diversity and inclusion policy, involvement of suppliers in sustainability training activities, and interventions to reduce the carbon footprint of our organization.

We want to continue actively engaging the entire company population in pursuing sustainability goals, creating widespread awareness of the role each of us can play in creating a more sustainable future.


Circular Economy Report - Enel X

The editorial staff of the Circular Economy Report, in close collaboration with Enel X, has allowed us to obtain a snapshot of the state-of-the-art of Gesteco's sites and plants and consequently develop targeted solutions tailored to our company's reality. 

Indeed, the Circular Economy Report has conducted a qualitative and quantitative analysis capable of evaluating the level of circularity of the company based on multiple factors, from energy and procurement policies to waste management, providing a wide range of information useful for improvement. 

On the corporate strategy front, the analysis acknowledged that Gesteco, focused on the waste sector, has always aimed to reduce the quantity of resources used and waste generated, integrating the activity of its internal divisions in a perspective extremely close to that of the circular economy. 

In our plants located in the region, we have managed to implement a self-sustaining system: there is a flow of materials (waste and secondary raw materials) that evolves cyclically from one plant to another, finding useful employment and contributing to the creation of value, minimizing waste and inefficiencies.


Gruppo Luci for Agenda 2030

During 2021, Gesteco took a significant step towards transparency and commitment to ESG issues (Environmental, Social, and Governance). We have indeed drawn up our first detailed document demonstrating our concrete commitment to pursuing the Agenda 2030 goals.

We started with a thorough analysis of the seven fundamental themes of ISO 26000, in order to make them our own and to adapt them to the core business of the entire Luci Group. Based on these themes, six areas of action were identified:

1. People in the company (including Human Resources and Good Business Practices)
2. Community and territory
3. Environment
4. Supply chain
5. Customer Management
6. Governance

For each identified area, the main sustainable business activities were mapped, assessing their importance for the realization of Agenda 2030, distinguishing primary from secondary impacts.

The purpose of this work was to measure Gesteco's and Luci Group's contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, identifying areas for improvement in order to plan, in the medium to long term, actions to enhance the organization's sustainable path.

FVG-4-ESG Report

Good practices in the company that promote environmental and social sustainability

The "Safety Week" project is one of the virtuous practices promoting environmental and social sustainability within the company, as highlighted in the FVG-4-ESG report, involving 24 entities in the region. The publication is part of the “Sustainability as a System” project, funded by the Friuli Venezia Giulia region (2022 – 2023) and coordinated by Animaimpresa

The "Safety Week" was created in 2019 to celebrate the European Week for Safety and Health at Work, an event held every October. This activity goes beyond mere compliance with regulations. Its aim is to raise awareness among employees and collaborators involved in healthy and safe work practices (and more), embracing the principles of social and environmental sustainability

In terms of safety, various topics were addressed: from the management of risks on the production site to health and safety, up to social and environmental sustainability. Regarding health, the activity carried out in 2023 was highlighted: the “Progetto Cuore”, designed with the aim of raising awareness among employees about cardiopulmonary resuscitation, focusing mainly on sudden cardiac arrest.


WHP – Workplace Health Promotion

From 2019 to 2023, we were awarded by the West Friuli Health Authority (ASFO) for implementing the WHP network model, creating conditions to encourage employees and collaborators to make choices for their own well-being and health.

In Friuli-Venezia Giulia, an increasing number of industrial and commercial entities are showing interest in this program, which includes a yearly reporting by ASFO on the good practices implemented to improve workers' health.

Over the years, we have promoted various training and awareness activities, from healthy and balanced nutrition to physical activity in the company, from good practices for work-life balance to targeted interventions for safe and sustainable mobility. Additionally, we have organized various prevention activities for addictions (smoking, alcohol, and narcotics), focusing in 2023 on the prevention of heart diseases.


FVG2 Trails

The regional project "PerCoRSI FVG2 - Paths for health, safety, and work-life quality in Friuli-Venezia Giulia" is an initiative co-financed by the European Social Fund within the implementation of the ROP, led by Ires Fvg Impresa Sociale, in collaboration with the Region. 

We were awarded for virtuous actions carried out in the field of Health and Safety in the workplace, Social Responsibility, and Corporate Welfare, specifically for the "Safety Week"  and "Chicchi di Sicurezza" projects.

The green economy and the waste management system - edited by Marco Letizi

We are proud that our experience has been included in Marco Letizi's book, "La Green Economy and the Waste Management System".

The work addresses the complex issue of waste management system in the circular economy, highlighting the main barriers that hinder the implementation of circular processes in the activities of collection, selection, treatment, and reuse of waste.

Our participation as a case study emphasizes our commitment and success in the sector, contributing to providing a tangible example of sustainable practices in the context of waste management.

In detail, the company's initiatives to make the aggregates and landfill waste supply chain circular and the analysis of energy circularity were examined to increase the levels of circularity in waste treatment processes.
