Making production processes more sustainable is on top of companies’ agenda and climate change, particularly for steel producers, is one of the main challenges.
For this purpose, numerous tools and new regulations have been introduced, forcing companies to take action to avoid incurring into additional costs and to comply with increasingly stringent regulations. While developing sustainability plans is mandated on the one hand, it also provides new opportunities for growth (e.g., development of emerging technologies, partnerships with other players in the supply chain…) to the benefit of competitiveness.
The commitment to environmental issues has always been at the very heart of AFV Beltrame Group’s growth: sustainability for AFV Beltrame Group is reflected into an ongoing commitment to develop more sustainable industrial processes.
We are steadily striving to reduce raw material and energy use, to save water, and to recover waste by adopting an increasingly circular industrial approach.
Over the years, several tools and agreements have been put in place in Europe to cut emissions, which the Group have always promptly adapted to. From the Emission Trading System of 2005 to the European Green Deal of 2019, we have been consistently championing the fight against climate change.
Today, in order to accelerate our transition process and move closer to the European Union’s challenging emissions targets, we have defined the Decarbonization Plan to reduce our CO2 emissions in which we are already among the most virtuous industry players.
The answer to this question is unequivocally YES. The Decarbonization Plan and carbon-neutral steel are the two building blocks of AFV Beltrame Group’s strategy. These environmental measures are a part of the whole strategy: in fact, sustainability is not only limited to environmental aspects, but is developed in close correlation with the context in which AFV Beltrame Group operates, involving all stakeholders and meeting their expectations, starting with the human capital represented by employees.
This approach is based on shared values with all stakeholders. In fact, sustainability is not only limited to environmental aspects, but is developed in close correlation with the context in which AFV Beltrame group operates, involving all stakeholders and meeting their expectations, starting with the human capital represented by employees.
