“We have worked on Progetto Change with great enthusiasm and determination. It is an ethical and strategic choice that calls for the transformation of our group into a completely zero-impact company over the next few years.”
Luca Migliorini, CEO of Terratinta Group, launches the new Change project with the aim of reducing emissions caused by fossil fuels, transforming the company into a zero-impact enterprise. “Important actions and investments will contribute to align the group with the strategies and standards for sustainability of the Scandinavian countries, guaranteeing for our young and international clients – the so-called millennials – products of high quality based on the indispensable values of the present, and of the best in Made in Italy.
A strategic and ethical choice made by many companies in North America, a market of fundamental importance for the group based in Fiorano Modenese, specialized in the production of porcelain stoneware tiles.
The efforts concentrate on electricity, which though it is a form of clean energy produces negative impact on the environment when it is generated, transmitted and consumed. For this reason, Terratinta Group wants to achieve BECORP certification, which maps companies on a worldwide level that apply ecosustainable policies, and to obtain insertion in the selective OnGreening platform. The firm’s transports will be replaced with exclusively electric or hybrid vehicles, with recharging stations placed across the corporate area.
Terratinta has also fully embraced Plastic Free operation, through the introduction of water purifiers, personal stainless steel bottles for employees, the replacement of traditional plastic pods and containers with compostable capsules, along with stirring sticks and cups made of totally compostable materials. The last action of this radical “green” transformation is the Paper Decrease, i.e. digital filing of all documents for in-house use.
