Environmental sustainability is a key objective for INVERNIZZI SPA, to be constantly achieved in all phases of its operations. This is testified by the fact that all the Company’s R&D projects cannot give up on continuous improvements as regards quality, safety and reduction of the environmental impact throughout the entire product lifecycle. As far as possible, this target must be achieved in an efficient, cost-effective and consumer-oriented manner.
Gathering adequate information and keeping a constant dialogue within the supply chain allow the company to abide by the current and future legislation, as well as respecting customers’ requirements in order to provide the market with sustainable products.
For this purposes, INVERNIZZI SPA has made a set of investments since 2018, aiming at developing itself further to be able to minimize the impact of its industrial activity on the surrounding environment (new peeling machine, new dryer, photovoltaic system) and within the near future, the Company will develop systems to measure and monitor its impact.
Bearing this in mind, thanks to the expertise and advice of Greenmap®, the programme developed by Habitech Distretto Energia e Ambiente for the industrial sector, the Company has undertaken a process to understand to which extent its products, made of a natural raw material such as poplar timber, can contribute to the environmental sustainability performance of “green buildings”, by adhering to specific globally recognized metrics and performances, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and WELL.
As far as LEED is concerned, INVERNIZZI products respond to the metrics MATERIALS AND RESOURCES e INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY contributing to the following credits:
Regarding the WELL contribution matrix, more focused on individual wellbeing and human health, our products respond to the Concept MATERIALS, contributing to the following features:
The concepts of health and material & component transparency, lower emissions of pollutants and better chemistry, as well as any intervention to minimize the impact of products on the environment and wellbeing, are getting greater resonance also in other sectors, such as the automotive and the recreational vehicle sectors, which are also increasingly concerned about environmental sustainability in vehicles. It is not by chance that, in recent years, many lists of substances have been developed in order to obtain and exchange information on the composition of materials and components used in the automotive sector, which indicates that the path towards greater transparency is now also traced in this important sector for our company production.
