Goal: Climate Positive by 2040

 

Our company is willing to play its role in facing environmental challenges by embracing sustainable consumption and production patterns aiming to reduce their impact so as to preserve resources for the generations to come.

We have a simple, yet ambitious goal: to become Climate Positive in 2040.

 

And we are doing this together with Etifor with the MARC method, which stands for Measure (calculate and certify your impacts), Avoid (avoid and reduce your impacts) Risks (learn how to manage new climate risks) and Capture & Communicate (capture and conserve CO2, communicate through trees). We have rated our emissions and are working to reduce them, according to a precise and measurable plan of actions and interventions to become first carbon neutral and then climate positive, which means having a positive impact on the Planet.

The roadmap sets 2040 as the year to achieve our climate positive and that means 10 years ahead of the target set by the European Commission.

 

 

We are to measure our production plants’ impact on the environment, as well as that of all our employees and collaborators, so as to determine subsequent containment and reduction actions.

Here is our plan of action in order to reach our goal of Carbon Neutrality:

  • The first goal we have already achieved was to use energy totally from renewable sources; from the current 30 percent we have increased to 100 percent .
  • Our second step concerns our collaborators and goods’ mobility: we are caring more and more about this issue by searching for new ways of reducing this mobility impact; e.g. by Xing suppliers willing to reduce their environmental impact and, as such,  being able to measure their CO2 emissions.
  • We are willing to examine all our products, starting from their packaging, aiming to decrease their impact on the environment; we are also willing to support any designing process which properly combines top performance with low environmental impact, throughout the life cycle of the product.
  • We shall play a very active role in preserving the overall Environment: we shall use forestation as opposite to de-forestation. We shall better assess our green-house-gas (GHG) emissions, our waste management, our use of water resources, by urging all our employees and collaborators to embrace environmentally-conscious-and-caring behaviour, starting from individual, daily simple actions.

WE ARE TOTALLY COMMITTED TO PROTECT THE PLANET WE LIVE ON AND TO MINIMIZE OUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT.
