To be increasingly environmentally sustainable, we have committed ourselves to:
- increasingly directing our activities towards the circular economy and ecological transition, through the efficient use of materials and energy
- ensuring the protection of the environment and health with effective systems to manage and control the environmental impacts
- developing eco-innovation projects for sustainable development
Thanks to the technological choices adopted, an effective environmental management system and a series of actions undertaken over the years, we have achieved important results with regard to efficiency in the use of materials, self-production of energy, reduction of energy consumption, efficiency in the use of water resources and waste reduction.
Water: the water used for every ton of “continuous machine” production is 25% below the industry average. 50% of the water is recycled and reused.
Energy: 32MW of the electricity and heat is self-produced by high-efficiency tri-generation and photovoltaic plants.
Use of materials: we have increased efficiency in the use of the materials. The resource (economic value generated for each ton of materials used in the “continuous machine” production) productivity rate grew by 55% in the 2017-2019 period.
Energy efficiency: the energy consumption per unit of product fell by 2.7% in the 2017-2019 period.
Waste production: the quantity of waste per unit of product fell by 12.6% in the 2017-2019 period.
Eco-innovation: 5.5 million euro of investments in the environment in 2019.
Raw materials: 97.7% of the materials used is formed by renewable raw materials. The FSC brand ensures the sustainable management of forestry materials.
