We follow the requirements of ISO 14001 (Environment Management System) on several fronts:
- Monitoring of consumption: in 2011 a system of indicators was adopted to monitor our commodities consumption (electricity, natural gas and water ). Our goal for 2020 is to reduce our energy consumption by 5% per kg.
- Efficient use of hydro-resources: since 2005 we have adopted “PALLECON” system, based on the elimination of the IBC cleansing for internal transfers. In 2016 we cut 50% of the water consumption connected with the plant washing by using a high-pressure cleaning system.
- Waste Management: we recycle all "non dangerous" waste; the management of "dangerous waste" respect a special traceability system named SISTRI (traceability system created in 2009 by the Italian Ministry for the Environment and the Safeguard of Sea and Territory).
- Choice of suppliers: our supply chain is designed by respecting the European regulations in the enviromental field. We favor the collaboration with certified suppliers whose plants are punctually audited in order to verify their conformity.
Our care for the reduction of the environmental impact is evident in our new manufacturing site in Gorla Maggiore (VA), where all the processes respects the main eco-compatibility regulations. Every procedure is in compliance with the regulatory of “Parco del Medio Olona”, the park in which our plant is located.
Sinerga "green philosophy": for the development of new ingredients and in formulations we favour raw materials of vegetable origin and technologies with low envirnemental impact.
