Towards a better future
Investing in sustainability means investing in the future for our environmental, social and economic wellbeing. For this reason for several years we have been pursuing projects aimed at reducing the impact of our production processes.
our technology is increasingly green
In the ageing rooms we create the best possible temperature and humidity conditions for the ageing of our hams. Our air conditioning systems are equipped with probes that analyse the characteristics of the external air and, when permitted by the weather conditions, use it to operate the units. This makes it possible to take full advantage of the excellent microclimate of our Apennines but also to reduce our energy consumption.
Heat recovery system
We have equipped our factories with systems that use the heat produced by the company’s compressors to heat mains water.
The Castel D’Aiano and Serramazzoni sites have also been equipped with photovoltaic systems that produce energy used in processing activities.
Trigeneration system and total recovery of heat
We have installed a modern trigeneration system that enables us to save 154.2 TOE* and an innovative heat recovery system on refrigeration units for a saving of 174.39 TOE, reducing our total tonne of oil equivalent by 30%.
*Tonnes of Oil Equivalent
The most recent extension of the Serramazzoni site was performed according to the principles of sustainable architecture: saving resources, energy efficiency, choice and use of materials, comfort of spaces.
Carbon footprint of
prosciutto di Modena
We have calculated the Carbon Footprint of Modena PDO prosciutto to measure the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our product.
Eco pack for
For our prosciutto with reduced fat and salt content, IL COMMENSALE, we have chosen a completely recyclable packaging to reduce its environmental impact and minimise material waste.
Social sustainability:for the good of the community
Relations with local communities
We contribute to the wellbeing of the community in which we live with tangible projects, pursuing various initiatives to support the community.
Finally, we have decided to certify our company on the basis of voluntary social and environmental schemes and to adhere to the IVSI Manifesto.
Compliance with the IVSI MANIFESTO
History and tradition, Information and culture, Quality and sustainability, Relationship with the local community, Italian lifestyle, Teamwork and Focus on the future: these are the 7 founding values of the “IVSI Manifesto: the charter of our values” of the Institution for the Promotion of Italian Cold Meats (Istituto Valorizzazione Salumi Italiani – IVSI), a charter of principles, values and characteristics that act as guidelines for those companies that decide to sign and adopt it.
Defines the requisites for creating, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system.
Involves a concrete commitment on the behalf of companies to minimising the environmental impact of their processes, products and services.
A universally recognised and shared standard and one of the main cornerstones of our Corporate Responsibility approach.
