Why do we believe in the economy of the common good?

The economy of the common good is an economic model which has the ultimate goal of ensuring the highest quality of life for all living beings on the planet. Dignity of human beings, eco-sustainability, social equity, democratic co-management and transparency are the pillars of this model, the aim of which is to invite companies and production entities to reflect on the role they play in relation to society and the world.

At Tratter, we have always worked to satisfy our customers and, at the same time, act in order to have a positive impact on the reality around us. The economy of the common good has provided us with a solid and coherent conceptual framework for optimising our efforts in this sense.
This is why we have adopted it enthusiastically and believe that the economy of the common good can help us to become a company that concretely improves the reality around us, for us and for all other people.

However, concrete efforts are needed to adhere to the economy of the common good. Efforts that presuppose the will to undergo a process of constant evaluation, the results of which are gathered in the so-called common good balance sheet.

This document measures the parameters describing the extent to which the company contributes to the change necessary for achieving the common good. Elements measured include:

  • The way in which the company finances its activities
  • The way in which the company manages staff
  • The way in which the company creates the product
  • The way in which the company treats suppliers
  • The way in which the company behaves in relation to customers

Our effort in this direction is constant and lasting.
