from the CEO

ROMI has always conducted its business according to our core values, which include respect for people, the environment and the law, social responsibility, integrity, transparency and the relentless pursuit of innovation. Two years ago we enthusiastically launched the ESG Portal and, last year, the ESG Report, to share our socio-environmental and corporate governance practices with the general public, highlighting ROMI’s enduring commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility.
We are delighted to present another edition of our ESG Report. This document, prepared by a dedicated and multidisciplinary team, highlights both consolidated practices and evolving initiatives, reflecting our ongoing commitment to promoting a sustainable business approach.
As demonstrated throughout this report, the ESG approach remains an integral part of our corporate DNA. It not only benefits our business, but also contributes to building a more sustainable future for all.
We are proud to share ROMI’s ESG practices with you and reinforce our renewed commitment to people, the environment and corporate governance. Look forward to more updates and progress in the coming year!

Our Bees

Two colonies, with approximately 30,000 bees each, have been located on the B+W premises since April 2017. According to the company’s founders - Louis Burkhardt and Johannes Weber - from 1888, the queen bees are called LOUISA and JOHANNA.
The “production rooms” of our BW bees are carefully designed by the children of BW employees.

Materiality Analysis

Identification of stakeholders: We carried out a mapping of relevant stakeholders, including our employees, investors, customers, suppliers, regulatory bodies and the local communities in which our operations are located.
Analysis of risks and opportunities and assessment of relevance: an initial mapping was carried out with the main stakeholders, identifying the risks and opportunities related to ESG aspects, which were then assessed by our Audit and Risk Committee, as well as by the Board of Directors. The following aspects were listed as material for ROMI.
