Corporate social responsibility, also known as CSR, is the concept that a business has a responsibility to do good. CSR means that a company should self-regulate its actions and be socially accountable to its customers, stakeholders, and the world at large. There are four areas of CSR.
For companies committed to CSR, it’s important for businesses to engage in environmentally friendly practices. Corporations can be significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, waste, and natural resource depletion—but by committing to environmental responsibility, a business takes ownership over its impact on the environment. At Spirits Platform we are continuously looking at how we can improve our carbon footprint.
Being ethically responsible means ensuring a business engages in fair business practices across the board—including treating all employees, stakeholders, and customers ethically and with respect. Spirits Platform is committed to doing business in an ethically responsible way.
In today’s world, it’s almost expected for businesses to give back to the communities they exist in and donate to causes that align with their company mission. When businesses do this, they’re following through with their philanthropic responsibility. Spirits Platform is a big believer in giving back and we donate to worthy causes as well as give back to our own employees in various ways.
When a business is acting with economic responsibility in mind, it is making financial decisions that prioritize doing good, not just making more money. This means that this type of CSR is intertwined with the other types above. Our objective is to become a carbon-neutral business by 2030. This would involve all business functions and be completed in two stages.
By September 2023 we plan to build a reporting system to measure the CO2 footprint and implement reduction strategies; educating people on climate change and how to operate in a carbon neutral manner.
We are implementing initiatives such as funding tree-planting to offset CO2 emissions produced by our business; things like company cars moving to electric vehicles by 2030, recharged from carbon neutral sources, with stations available at our Head Office.
We are also committed to partnering with our brand principals in being socially, environmentally, philanthropically, and economically responsible.

Respecting and safeguarding the environment has always been of fundamental importance to Distillerie Francoli making it the first grappa distillery to have Zero Impact® on the environment.
PUTTING A STOP TO CO2 EMISSIONS
The heat used in the distillation process is obtained entirely from vegetal fuel, which ensures a neutral balance when it comes to CO2. Unavoidable emissions of carbon dioxide due to the company’s commercial activities (such as the supply and delivery of goods, travel by car, plane etc.) are compensated for by the CO2 absorbed by the large areas of forest planted by the Company. In addition, the company’s involvement in the Impatto Zero® project helps to protect more than 340000 square meters of forest in Costa Rica.
Their thermo-electric power plant produces electrical and thermal energy using biomass as fuel. It is renewable, sustainable and clean, and has no negative effect on the surrounding area, on forestation or on the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere.
