Today language is more and more based on acronyms and abbreviations (in future it could be a school subject, as a foreign language), often it seems to discuss extraterrestrial matters, we are talking about something very simple instead.
For example, here we daily mention ISO, SGA, VIVA, and not referring to any ‘futuristic’ project. …Well, someway yes it does concern future!
SGA= Sistema di Gestione Ambientale=Environmental Management System=EMS
ISO, worldwide known, is the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world most important international standard-setting body. Not everyone knows that its name is not an acronym, since in different languages would have different abbreviations – “IOS” in English, “OIN” in Italian, etc.- the organization adopted “ISO” as its abbreviated name in reference to the Greek word isos (ἴσος, meaning equal).
In the year 2013 we received the MAGIS Sustainability certification, we then joined the V.I.V.A. “Sustainable Wine” project. At the same time, we are addressing all the ISO 14001 audits. ISO 14001 specifies requirements for an environmental management system(SGA).
In short, all these acronyms just say that we work with absolute respect of our land, and ensuring environmental sustainability. The present in perspective of the future.
