Our Environmental Policy is based on our availability to an open and transparent comparison with the control bodies and with territory in which we are located. We are aware that the relationship of trust we have established with the community must be constantly maintained; for almost twenty years we have voluntarily communicated and published the indicators that show the attention we pay to the respect for the environment, not limiting ourselves just to simple regulatory compliance.
Every year we define ever more ambitious and challenging targets to achieve higher results in our environmental performance.
Over the years, Finchimica voluntarily underwent audits by third parties and received numerous inspection visits by ARPA Lombardia (the Regional Environmental Protection Agency), with the aim to verify the compliance with the environmental authorizations granted.
These verifications have always proven our full compliance with regulations and have shown our attention to environmental topics and our commitment to a careful monitoring of the performance of our plant.
Here below we list the most significant indicators that illustrate Finchimica’s corporate efforts to protect the environment.
Our systems are designed to maximize water recycling, avoiding wasting water, the most important resource on our planet; and even if our production increases, we are committed to ensuring that water consumption does not increase.
The following graph illustrates the water consumption per ton of production over the years, it shows the continuous commitment of our company in pursuing this fundamental goal to protect the environment.
Improvement in water consumption must not be compensated by an increase in electricity consumption, necessary to guarantee the functioning of the recycling pumps.
The following graph – that compares water consumption to electricity consumption, normalized according to the tons of products produced – demonstrates the constant improvement in water consumption over the years. The value of the index, unvaried since 2002, shows how this improvement in water consumption does not go to the detriment of energy consumption, even with an increase in the number of production cycles.
