Corporate & Compliance

Legislative Decree no. 231 of 8th June 2001 introduced into the Italian legal system a system of administrative liability of the Entities – including capital companies – for certain crimes committed by directors, managers or employees in the interest or for the benefit of the Entity itself.

Cotonificio Albini S.p.A., inspired by a modern corporate concept that provides for a close correlation between ethics and business, has implemented the principles dictated by the legislation in question and has adopted its own Organization, Management and Control Model and a Code of Ethics.

The Supervisory Body was also established, in collegial composition, which has the task of supervising the functioning of the Model, guaranteeing its effectiveness and adequacy and taking care of its periodic updating.


Since 1876, our commitment and ambition has been focused on creating the most beautiful fabrics in the world. The identity of Cotonificio Albini, born from the entrepreneurial style of the founders, is based on values like honesty, transparency, innovation, social and environmental responsability. This approach is the result of a strong and recognised cultural identity, described in detail in Code of Ethics, to which all managers and employees and those who directly or indirectly establish relationships or relationships with Cotonificio Albini S.p.A. are required to comply.
