The fundamentals that lead to sustainability
The focuses of our commitment with the goal of pursuing sustainability in everything we do.
Ethical management of a company is not just a choice, but is a fundamental pillar that defines the company’s identity and longevity over time. Business ethics goes beyond compliance with laws and regulations, requiring a deep commitment to act justly and responsibly toward all stakeholders.

A Privacy team, consisting of the ICT Office, Legal Office and Personnel Office, oversees these issues in active collaboration.
Main activities include checking and updating personal data records, managing System Administrators’ compliance, and organizing information activities for staff. Each Group entity appoints a Data Protection Officer (DPO), who is responsible for managing and implementing data protection policies. The DPO is committed to ensuring compliance with data protection regulations and the adoption of best practices for data security and privacy.

The SU.PRE.MO research project, launched in 2022, aims to improve the mechanical properties of materials, identify prefabrication systems for wood structures and develop a platform for online configuration of X-LAM buildings. The research also includes the creation of prefabricated modules for emergency situations and self-building based on a database of opportunities.
X-LAM Dolomites participates in demonstration projects, such as the ARV project for full-scale buildings with structural innovations and the MULTICARE project, which aims to improve multi-hazard resilience of buildings through low-carbon technologies.
