Our code of values and our philosophy apply to both the behaviour models that we pursue in the company and the external activities that we support. For many years now we have been alongside various local groups engaged in supporting social initiatives, sports or culture.
We are actively committed in reducing the environmental impact of our activities by aiming at improving the quality of life. Our commitment allowed us to achieve important results in terms of sustainability, encouraging us every day to do more.

REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS (CO2)
Being aware of the environmental impacts of your organization is the first step to understand how to contain emissions, which energy measures to introduce to reduce energy consumption and communicate and how to communicate the company's commitment and social responsibility towards environmental sustainability.
In 2022, thanks to the energy efficiency improvement, NUPI avoided several tons of CO2, equivalent to the emissions that 828 cars would have produced in a year, or 8.900 oil barrels consumed, or 467.594.332 mobile phones recharged.
OUR CO₂ SAVING SINCE THE YEAR 2022 HAS BEEN EQUAL TO:
KM TRAVELED BY A CAR
DOMESTIC ELECTRICITY UTILITIES
OIL BARRELS CONSUMED
reduction of the impact of company activities
NUPI INDUSTRIE ITALIANE has been awarded the ISO14001 Environmental Management System Certificate.
The goal was achieved thanks to a complete modernization of the production plants and a timely recovery policy for processing waste.
However, the most important part of our plan to reduce the company's impact on the environment is the use of alternative energies.
In June 2022 we expanded the photovoltaic systems of the 2 plants in Busto Arsizio and Castel Guelfo to reach the nominal power of 600kW and 200kW respectively. By the end of 2023 all NUPI plants will be equipped with photovoltaic panels to reach a total of 2MW power.
We have installed modern trigeneration systems in our plants for the combined production of electrical and thermal energy in a high-efficiency cogeneration (CAR) regime and with nominal power of 635 kW in Busto Arsizio and 1067 kW in Castel Guelfo.
assessment of the environmental impacts of the products
NUPI carried out the assessment of environmental impacts for its main brands: in 2019, NIRON and Polysystem, PolietileneTubi and Elofit fittings, in 2020 Multinupi and Smartflex and Supersmartflex.
Transparency is an important value for NUPI. It drives the company choices and allows for informed and conscious decisions for NUPI customers and stakeholders.
NUPI Industrie Italiane understands the value of sustainability and has for some time now adopted a policy aimed at reducing its environmental impacts. One of the most important features of this action was the implementation, in 2018, of a dedicated EPD TOOL, for the creation of the Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) of its piping systems.
This Tool, developed by Thinkstep (SPHERA group) on the GABI Envision platform, was subsequently validated, and certified by an independent third party. Equipping the company with this powerful tool has allowed NUPI to calculate and report the Environmental Footprint of its main products and production processes, with the aim of reducing the potential environmental impacts associated with its activities objectively and transparently.
PLAN FOR REDUCING AND COMPENSATING EMISSIONS
NUPI has been carrying out process innovations for some time now, in accordance with its quality and environmental policies, which allow the company to improve its overall sustainability profile.
Thanks to the environmental product declarations, NUPI can also analyse both the life cycle of the products and the activities carried out by the company, identifying the areas on which to intervene to reduce and offset greenhouse gas emissions. The aims of reducing and offsetting these emissions concern raw materials, the purchase of electricity 100% generated from renewable sources, the replacement of plastic packaging with paper or plastic, as much as possible recycled, and the activation of a virtuous system for the recycling and recovery of pre-consumer waste and process water.
Reduction of energy requirements with consequent improvement of the company's performance indices, process optimization, eco-sustainable product design, digitization of activities, selection and procurement of sustainable packaging materials, strategic and responsible selection of its suppliers and, last but not least, promotion of policies to generate awareness in people, at all levels of competence and role, that their choices today will build the future of our planet. This, and not only, is NUPI's commitment to the environment and future generations.
With regard to energy consumption, it is important to note that, in relation to most of the other materials used for the production of piping systems (steel, copper, cast iron), plastic pipes consume less energy for their production. They are also extremely durable (100 years) and require minimal, if not non-existent, maintenance and repair interventions, as they are not subject to wear, fatigue and corrosion, typical of metallic materials.
