Environmental protection activities
Siapi has designed a project of compensation of the CO2 emitted due to the process of transportation from the production sites to the central office, working in synergy with the association AzzeroCO2, whose national and international projects are sponsored by Legambiente. By the end of July AzzeroCO2 will present a project based on our indications on the place where to plant an adequate number of trees by autumn 2019. On the occasion of the planting of the trees an event will be organized with the participation of the SIAPI employees, of the municipal authorities and the local press.
Seam Project – Fepa (European Federation of Abrasive Producers)
Siapi is among the member companies of Fepa which are actively contributing to the realization of the SEAM program (Sustainable European Abrasive Manufacturers). The aims of this project are: environmental (energy and resources savings, control of emissions), social (workers’ protection, accidents prevention, compliance to safety standards) economical (fair competition, antirust, control over the whole supply chain).
THE CO2 COMPENSATION PROJECT – NOVEMBER 2019
Being a sustainable company means involving all its stakeholders in a process of transparency, openness and attention to the environment and social issues.
Siapi has autonomously decided to carry out a control of its emissions into the atmosphere. Configuring itself as a trading company, its impact on the environment is mainly represented by the emissions produced by the transport of its products by truck. Siapi asked the experts of the company AzzeroCO2 to calculate the extent of its environmental impact. AzzeroCO2 is an energy Service Company with consolidated expertise in the realization of certified and customized forestry projects, which for years has cooperated with companies such as Ikea, Crédit Agricole, Brembo, Sky, Decathlon and Enel just to name a few.
On the basis of the kilometric data provided by Siapi, the CO2 emissions generated were calculated. The use of means of transport ˃ 28 t, average European fleet, which travel to full load. The distances provided, since they relate only to 80% of the total transport, were increased, in order to be more representative of the total kilometers paths. With the cooperation of Legambiente, AzzeroCO2 supported Siapi in organizing a corporate volunteering event on November 9th in which the employees actively participated in planting nr. 100 trees, which now populate the Parco dei Sorrisi in Trezzano sul Naviglio (Milan). The 100 trees will compensate more than 70% of the CO2 produced by Siapi.
Dedicating a day of corporate volunteering to an initiative of planting new trees means playing a truly active role and giving a concrete approach to the environmental cause.
The benefits are important: improvement of the safety and stability levels of the forests and the territory, sustainable management of the wooded heritage, conservation of biodiversity, improvement of the air quality, landscape improvement, greater accessibility and usability of the air.
