Attention to the environment

Daily gestures that make the difference.

/SUSTAINABILITY / ATTENTION TO THE ENVIRONMENT

Energy saving

  • The adoption of new plants is always carried out taking into great consideration the environmental impact.
  • At the Mezzani plant, a 1.2 MW trigeneration plant is in operation which, together with the existing 1 MW photovoltaic plant, makes the production site self-sufficient in terms of electricity consumption.

The cooling water of the plant is reused to heat the rooms in winter and, through an exchanger, to cool them in summer.

  • The existing plants are constantly subject to interventions aimed at improving energy efficiency.
  • We have an Inter-functional Team within our plants that investigates water and electricity consumption on a daily basis and works to ensure that activities to reduce waste and optimize consumption are implemented.
  • We continuously train and raise awareness among operators.

Water

  • The water used in our industrial processes is 100% recovered. With the development of a closed cycle we do not waste the water used for production, we purify it and reuse it to produce the glues for our cardboard.

Air

  • All air emissions are analysed periodically.
    We adopt the best solutions to safeguard air quality both inside and outside our plants. We pay a lot of attention to transport planning, optimise vehicle routes and use return transporters as much as possible.

/SUSTAINABILITY / ATTENTION TO THE ENVIRONMENT

Waste

  • We collect and separate industrial waste in accordance with current regulations.
  • We are constantly looking for alternative packaging solutions that reduce waste and safeguard the use of resources.

Recycling

  • Circular economy: the waste paper and cardboard from our production processes is recovered and reintroduced into the manufacturing circuit as a new raw material.
  • Some 80% of the paper used in production is recycled paper.

Chain of Custody

  • Through the FSC certification since 2011, we are able to demonstrate transparently that our products made from virgin fibre come from controlled and well-managed forests.
