Environmental protection is a constant commitment for CPL CONCORDIA, which dedicates constant attention to it, making choices which not only are in compliance with the laws, but also result in continuous improvement in environmental performance.
Compliance with environmental requirements is observed not only in conjunction with the periodic maintenance visits made by the outside certification body, but also by means of the constant monitoring of the organization’s main environmental impacts, performed through internal audits and analytical laboratory tests as specified by the Environmental Policy itself.

UNI EN ISO 14001 Certification

CPL CONCORDIA decided to implement and maintain an Environmental Management System in conformity with Standard UNI EN ISO 14001:2004: in strict observance of the relevant European Union, national, and regional regulations, the Cooperative operates on the basis of a continuous reduction in the direct and indirect effects of the activities performed in the surrounding environment.

Environmental Policy

CPL CONCORDIA’s tangible commitment to the environment is demonstrated in the following manner:

  • operating in compliance with current environmental legislation, internal rules, and all the requirements resulting from contractual agreements stipulated with third parties;
  • systematically reviewing the Environmental Management System with a view toward the continuous improvement of its performance;
  • carrying on an open dialog with the public on the environmental effects of the company’s operations and at the same time ensuring cooperating with public authorities;
  • promoting the employees’ responsibility and awareness through adequate information and training programs, so that the personnel at every level ensure that the Environmental Management System is applied effectively within the sphere of their responsibility;
  • giving priority to relationships with suppliers that are able to ensure products and services that are in compliance with our Environmental Management System;
  • evaluating the addition to the processes of raw materials and auxiliary materials that could provide greater environmental compatibility than those that are currently in use;
  • evaluating in advance the environmental impact of new processes and modifications to existing systems;
  • reducing to a minimum the production of pollution emissions, protecting surface and subsurface water resources, and preventing the accidental discharge of dangerous substances and the wasting of resources;
  • managing the waste produced in the best possible manner and promoting recycling and recovery where possible; and
  • encouraging the use of energy generated from renewable sources, such as photovoltaic solar power, cogeneration, and biomass.
Politica Ambientale
CO2 prevented from entering the atmosphere

Regarding the production from renewable energy sources, CPL confirm an entry on the national grid of over 60 GWh of electricity from 80 photovoltaic systems throughout the country, which has allowed us to avoid emission into the atmosphere of more than 32 367 tons of CO2.
The electricity produced by cogeneration plants instead is powered by renewable fossil that, during 2013 has exceeded 520 GWhe: of these, for plants fueled by natural gas, 97% of the energy is used for self-consumption, while the amount of electricity fed on national network substantially attributable to the facilities on biogas well over 300 GWhe.
