SUSTAINABILITY
report 2021.

For some years now, we have been investing in a prevention programme aimed at improving the environmental sustainability of all our activities. We have been acting on basic criteria, such as: facilitation of recycling activities, use of recycled materials, saving of raw materials, optimization of logistics, simplification of the packaging system, optimization of production processes, and reduction of energy waste.

This report is a list, under continuous development, of all the steps we have already undertaken or are gradually accomplishing in order to reach our ambitious sustainability goals.

CERTIFICATION ISO 14001

Status: in progress - accomplishment by end 2021.

ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It is a must for any eco-friendly organization that wishes to set up, improve, or maintain an environmental management system. All the required activities are already in full progress and that, by the end of this year, we will achieve the ISO 14001 certification.

A PROVEN ENERGY
SAVING ATTITUDE

We are proud to announce that 100% of our annual electricity supply comes from green, renewable sources. Since 2009 we have been producing a significant share of our energy need through the installation of a solar panel system.
Discover more
undefined
Owing to an optimal placement, orientation, and weather conditions, our photovoltaic equipment is able to convert into actual electricity a high percentage of our annual energy requirement.

We registered very good performances
in the last two years:

2019
self-produced energy: 43%
purchased energy: 57%
sold energy: 47%*

2020 (*)
self-produced energy: 35%
purchased energy: 65%
sold energy: 30%*

*Of the produced solar energy
(*)In 2020 we registered a reduced energy production owing to the replacement and maintenance operations on the solar panels installed in 2009.

In 2022, we will further improve the achieved performances through the installation of a battery equipment, which will be able to store the excess energy, we are now bound to sell, and reuse it when the solar energy income is lower than the need.
Moreover, we can certify that the energy we purchase comes from renewable sources. Our provider, EICOM Energia, issues the international GO certification, which guarantees that their energy is produced by plants powered by renewable sources. Renewables are those forms of energy coming from energy sources that can regenerate (such as wind or water energy), or that will not be exhausted within a scale of human times (such as solar power or geothermal energy). Most important thing, their use does not affect natural resources for future generations.

PACKAGING (R)EVOLUTION

Sometimes little things are little steps towards a great goal. Changing the everyday habits is always difficult but it means a lot for the creation of a better world. We decided to take some little steps within our everyday working habits that are a contribution to the improvement of a global sustainability.
Discover more
• 100% of our packaging comes from over 90% recycled materials;
• Abandon of the use of foam in our packaging by end 2021;
• Use of biodegradable wraps for packing;
• Use of paper tape;
• Paper glasses for coffee and water;
• Reusable water bottles.

REDUCTION OF
DANGEROUS EMISSIONS

Air, water and soil pollutants harm human health and the environment. It is a scientific evidence that the reduction of dangerous emissions of many pollutants have decreased substantially over the past decades, resulting in improved air, water, and soil quality. Our careful procedures allow no dangerous leaks and a very low percentage of air polluting emissions.
Discover more
undefined
The CO2 emissions of our office and warehouse areas are equal to zero, and we have already taken measures in order to have zero emissions also in our production department starting from January 2022. Moreover, we are arranging stringent procedures for the 100% recycle of the waste materials within the end of 2022.

HUMAN-CENTRIC
WORKING SPACES

The work place is far more than just a place where people work. Spaces and places have a massive impact not only on our state of mind but also on our performance. As we care about our people, we do everything to improve their everyday conditions, creating a natural, healthy working environment.
Discover more
In all our offices we have installed 100% LED lighting, which are capable of creating a safe and well lit ambience, while allowing energy savings. The air recirculation and purification system installed in our offices allows a safe breathing condition and is fed with zero emission green energy sources. The lighting system of our exterior building, parking and gardens is also 100% LED.
