Doing business the right way
We strongly believe that responsible corporations are sustainable corporations – and vice versa – , fostering innovation and value creation. For this reason our strategy is based on three pillars: Climate Change Reverse, ESG Orientation and CSR Enterprises.
Our priority is to reduce CO2 emissions and wastes from manufactured products. Through investments in emerging technologies, we have set specific, measurable and ambitious targets for the 2030–2050 time frame.
To reduce the consumption of precious natural resources and raw materials, we are among the first organizations to implement circular operations through an annual recycling program. We recycle scrap metal, production waste and obsolete, non-functional spare parts. In parallel with our recycling practices, via our engineering services, we prolong our customers equipment lifetime.
With focus on supply chain optimization, though minimizing our energy usage, wastes, water consumption while maximizing efficiency. We are committed to make the difference and work together with our partners to boost localization projects. As a result, we have simplified our global supply chain to benefit our clients and the local communities.
