On 6 December 2021, Legalità per il clima on behalf of 17 NGO, 26 individuals, 1 political party, and 1 movement filed a specific instance against Gruppo Veronesi at NCP Italy. The complaint concerns the company’s activities related to the intensive farming livestock sector. The complainants allege that the livestock sector contributes to the global climate emergency, especially given the large volumes of methane produced by livestock.

The complainants request the NCP’s assistance to mediate a pathway for the company to release information on the climate (and environmental) impacts of its activities, to adjust their risk assessment plans, and to work towards a drastic reduction of methane and other greenhouse gases and pollutants.

Relevant OECD Guidelines


The complainant’s initial complaint cannot be published due to NCP Italy’s confidentiality requirements for complaints.
