Sustainability has always been part of Idai Nature‘s core values since its foundation. Having opted for natural and disruptive technologies that could compete with traditional chemical products has meant that its CEO, Carlos Ledó, has made such an effort to convey to his team the importance of innovation linked to sustainability within the organization.
Idai Nature was born 11 years ago as a family-owned business dedicated to the research, development and manufacture of natural solutions for the agricultural biocontrol. Today, the exponential growth Idai has experienced in its trajectory has meant that in this short period of time it has gone from an SME to a multinational company present in 40 countries.
‘When I started, I wanted to convey the project to every worker who came into the company, to make them understand that we are more than a company, that we have the purpose of building a better world for our children through health and food safety, providing farmers with safe and sustainable tools. Nowadays, we have grown so much that I cannot convey the message one by one, which I would love to do, but it is impossible. For this reason, we have created the ethics and sustainability committee, with the aim of involving all the departments of the company in focusing and detecting improvements in the field of sustainability. This way, I am confident that the original message is still getting through,’ says Carlos Ledó.
The Committee is composed of the following departments: Management, through the figure of Ledó himself, Innovation, Quality and Communication, although it welcomes any employee of the company who wants to contribute ideas or improvements in favor of continuing the sustainable path that Idai Nature established more than 10 years ago, for which it was awarded by the European Commission the highest recognition in Europe a sustainable company can obtain for the 2020/2021 fiscal year.
