Zegna Group: projects, culture and environment

THE ENVIRONMENT, CULTURE AND ERMENEGILDO ZEGNA

Since its early years, Ermenegildo Zegna has been committed to a holistic view of business and of taking seriously its stewardship of its people and its environment, at home and across the globe
E
rmenegildo’s brilliant business mind was not limited to his particular industrial field. He understood that the quality he sought for his products couldn’t be separated from a positive relationship with the local territory and the community. For him, the beauty of the natural environment and people’s well being – and not just that of his own employees – were indispensable for a company aspiring to long term success.

Angelo Zegna, current Honorary Chairman of the Group, describes his father’s achievements as: "I see four forces acting throughout my father’s life. First of all, he was born in the right environment to develop his business aptitudes. There were various small firms competing in a small area. Secondly, he was always determined to get the better of his British rivals, by offering creative Italian fabrics with unbeatable quality. The third force was an exceptionally open mind, especially regarding the social welfare of the territory and redistribution of value to workers. Lastly, there was his fundamentally important relationship with nature, his awareness that natural resources are limited and that we must protect them. He was an ecologist long before the term even existed!"

STEWARDS OF THE ENVIRONMENT

This commitment continues today. Each year the Zegna Group pursues continuous research to ensure the highest quality of its products in respect of the environment. The Oasi Zegna, a protected area spanning 100 km2 incorporating the Panoramica Zegna, was established in 1993 safeguarding a beautiful part of Italy, to be used and enjoyed by the public.

ZEGNART

In 2012 a new Ermenegildo Zegna project was launched worldwide: ZegnArt, a structured set of activities in the field of visual arts within a contemporary context.

The leading role that the Ermenegildo Zegna Group continues to play in the field of culture, directly or through Fondazione Zegna, is reaffirmed with the donation of over 3% of the net profits on yearly basis.
