To prove its commitment for the reduction of the environmental impact of its industrial activities, NUPI Industrie Italiane has been awarded the ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System Certificate) certification. The goal was achieved through a deep modernization of 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 energy:
We equipped the two plants in Busto Arsizio and Castel Guelfo with photovoltaic systems. The consequent production of electricity allowed us to achieve significant energy savings and a great reduction in CO2 emissions.
We have installed trigeneration systems in our plants to produce electricity and allow the use of thermal energy recovered from thermodynamic transformation, as well as to produce cooling energy.
Since 2017 we have undertaken a campaign for the replacement of traditional industrial lamps with LED lamps, free from ultraviolet or infrared radiation, dangerous substances (Hg and Kr) and toxic gases typical of discharge lamps.
The tons of CO2 avoided in 2020 are equivalent to 767 cars driven for one year, 8223 barrels of oil and 452.983.357 recharged mobile phones.
REDUCTION OF THE IMPACT OF OUR PRODUCTS
NUPI Industrie Italiane pursues the reduction of the environmental impact through LCA studies and EPD product certificates which represent the starting point of GREEN designing. To achieve this goal, the company promotes investments to reduce energy consumption and signs only 100% green supply contracts. The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a document that describes the environmental impact associated with the production of a specific quantity of product or service. This GREEN passport was obtained by our NIRON and POLYSYSTEM polypropylene systems and by our POLIETILENETUBI and ELOFIT polyethylene systems back in 2019. Since 2020, MULTINUPI and SMARTFLEX systems can also boast this prestigious certification.
