We are part of the Conscious Capitalism Foundation, it is a business paradigm in transformation that simultaneously creates multiple types of value and well-being: economic, intellectual, physical, ecological, social, cultural, emotional, ethical and even spiritual. It is a global entity that connects entrepreneurs and leaders who share a new vision of capitalism based on voluntary exchange, competition and free trade with humanist values such as trust, compassion, collaboration and value creation. It is not about being virtuous or profiting by doing good, but rather a form of business thinking that is more aware of its higher purpose, its impact on the planet, and the relationships it has with stakeholders and stakeholders. It reflects a deeper awareness of why companies exist and how they can create more value.

This year, 2024, we have dedicated our calendar to people who have done or said relevant things and who have marked our history. These people have been chosen by our entire team.Sometimes it happens that we read a phrase or a text and it ends up accompanying us forever, which we will use as a motto and which will remind us of where we come from and where we want to go.
That phrase that will make us reflect, that perhaps will also make us change the way we see the day or life and that will ultimately make us understand things in a different way. The importance of that phrase or text is obviously the content but also who wrote it, in what context and why.
This year we wanted to give away characters and phrases, we want to share their lives and reflections that have made us think and we hope that they do too and that they can accompany them for a while or who knows... forever.
