Our business have a very strong environmental impact, which is why our commitment is focused mainly on three areas:
To ensure the best possible management and monitoring of all the processes which could generate a negative environmental impact, we decided to encourage all the Group's Companies to use integrated Management Systems, certified according to the UNI EN ISO 9001, 14001, 50001 standards and to register waste-to-energy plants under the EMAS scheme. With each cycle the systems set new efficiency goals in environmental and energy management, which are monitored via performance indicators capable of identifying any signs of anomalies at an early stage, allowing us to implement timely corrective actions, thus reducing costs and risks.
