Epta publishes its Integrated Report for the first time, a document which integrates the economic-financial and environmental results.
It is a milestone in terms of transparency and communication, which represents the natural development of ten years of Corporate Social Responsibility Report.
For Epta, sustainability has always been an essential asset in its interaction with the aspects of competitiveness and financial performance.
To progress and achieve new goals it is necessary to get involved, take on board new developments and intercept emerging trends, starting from sustainable innovation.
Resilience, ability to transform and flexibility are the factors behind the excellent results achieved, despite the difficulties and ongoing change.
2021 will be remembered in Epta as the year in which the company became “One Billion Company” and even exceeded this threshold to reach almost one billion two hundred million.
Cav. Lav. Marco Nocivelli – Chairman and CEO of Epta declares: “A milestone we are extremely proud of because it was achieved thanks to the solid principles that guide us, essential to act resolutely in a context of exceptional change. A result that goes hand in hand with important data recorded also in the context of attention to the environment, an essential prerogative for Epta, which has integrated Sustainable Development Goals within the framework of its corporate policy for some time.”
The achievements recorded within the corporate social responsibility area include 9% reduction in water consumption compared to 2019 and 92% waste recycling inside the plants.
Epta has set itself ambitious goals for 2025. They include the achievement of 95% recycled waste and 55% reduction in CO2 emissions during processing activities.
Innovation and sustainability have characterised the identity of the group since its birth and in recent years they have been elevated to founding logic for the entire business. Sustainable innovation is the foundation for every activity, both on the productive and on the strategic level.
A choice which allows to consciously look at the most complex contemporary challenges and provides the tools to tackle them with enthusiasm, creating real shared value for all stakeholders, in line with the ESG principles.
“The growth of Epta would not be possible without teamwork and the contribution of everyone who has committed and dedicated themselves to the activities that have involved them. The result of having shared the uniqueness and potential of each resource is surely higher than the sum of the single parts. I am sure that we will continue in this direction with the ingenuity, determination and passion which set us apart” concludes Marco Nocivelli.
