EPTA COMPLIES WITH THE CARBON TRUST STANDARD

22/07/2020

The management offices of Milan and the production sites of Limana, Casale Monferrato, Solesino and Pomezia of Epta obtain compliance with the Carbon Trust Standard (CTS) for the first time. This is an important international certification that attests, on the one hand, the company’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, expressed in tonnes of equivalent CO2 and, on the other hand, the definition of a strategic plan for continuous improvement of its performance for the future.

This objective of this Standard, obtained the world over by more than 1,100 companies, is to help guide industries, over time, to a responsible and optimal management of its greenhouse gas emissions, minimising its impact on the environment. A process of change made possible by a quantitative assessment process that, year after year, provides each operator with a precise performance framework, compared with that of the best performer in the same sector.

The Carbon Trust Standard (CTS) is based on three specific aspects: the complete collection of the data on energy consumption, the reduction of its Carbon Footprint in a given reference period and good management of its emissions, based on greenhouse gas monitoring. During the assessment period, Epta marked the achievement of a considerable milestone in 2019 with an absolute reduction of tCO2e emissions of 2.1% and a relative decrease in tco2e /worked hours of 6.3%, for an overall qualitative assessment score of 75%, which attests the Company’s contribution to combat climate change.
