Metal Work Green Philosophy
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Metal Work has always paid attention to sustainability and to the reduction of environmental impact. For this reason in our offices and factories we have adopted changes in favour of eco-sustainability. Small gestures that can make the difference.
Metal Work employees can save CO2 and earn savings by sharing their cars when they go to work, walk, or cycle thanks to this project.
Charging station for electric cars
Three charging columns for electric cars have been installed in our plants in Concesio: a further step towards a clean energy world.
In the headquarters of via Borsellino in Concesio a geothermal system is active, which allows the heating and cooling of the plant using clean and renewable energy.
Shower Water Heating
The water in the showers of our locker rooms is heated through the cooling process of our air compressors. We thus reduce energy consumption, improving our overall energy balance.
The photovoltaic systems of our plants have produced 5,653,267.7 KWh of clean energy since April 2011.
Our USB flash drives are strictly made of metal, to reduce the production of plastic.
All of our coffees and hot drinks are consumed in paper cups and mixed with wooden scoops, to further reduce the use of disposable plastic.
Trees for the Future
During the I Worldwide Metal Work Meeting we have planted 100 trees embracing the Forest Garden Program of the Trees for the Future association.
All employees can make free use of the water supplied by our dispensers, to reduce the use of disposable plastic bottles.
We use recycled paper in all its forms: from print to hand towels.
Environmental Management - ISO 14001
In 2000 we decided to obtain the certification of the Environmental Management System in accordance with UNI EN ISO 14001, which sets out the requirements needed to provide evidence of our commitment to the environmental issues.
