Both civilians and public and private institutions are becoming increasingly attentive and sensitive towards environmental issues. S.p.A. Cartiere Modesto Cardella puts the desire to contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the environment into practice by ensuring, in the exercise of its business, commitment to continuous compliance with all applicable regulations and corporate standards regarding this issue.
With the establishment of a system of voluntary environmental certification, complying with the IS014001 directives, the company has made an active contribution to the ethical dynamic for sustainable development, in line with other initiatives for continuous improvement being promoted in the Paper District of Capannori.
In pursuing the efforts aimed at continuous improvement of environmental performance and pollution prevention, the Executive Board intends in particular to:
- evaluate the best available techniques which, in addition to giving advantages in the production process could lead to the containment of environmental impact, especially regarding the management of the water cycle and the generation of waste;
- gradually adopt policies and internal organisational instruments, as well as good environmental management, to facilitate an improvement in the different production conditions;
- raise awareness among internal and external interlocutors about the fundamental principles of safeguarding the environment and the health of the workers;
- cooperate with local businesses and institutions in initiatives which are of value to the area and which can gradually ease environmental pressure from the paper industries present in the territory.
