5 June: World Environment Day 🌍

On 5 June, the World Environment Day is celebrated, a global campaign proclaimed by the United Nations in 1972 in Stockholm, on the occasion of the first UN Conference on the environment.
This year, a common slogan: “One Earth”, with a focus on the opportunity to live in harmony with nature.

“Zero environmental accidents” and “zero pollution” are among the objectives that Impresa Pizzarotti & C. S.p.A. pursue environmental protection through a continuous analysis of possible impacts, prevention actions and the rational and sustainable use of raw materials, favouring, where possible, recovery and/or recycling, encouraging the development and use of innovative technologies both in the design phases and in the construction phases.

Driving a continuous improvement in environmental performance and sustainability development, our Environmental Management System, to promote and define optimal methods and procedures for the use of more efficient systems that can ensure the maintenance of energy-intensive equipment, optimisation of the use of water resources and reuse in the production cycle of by-products (earths and rocks for excavation) or reuse of secondary raw materials.

These are just some of the activities that led Pizzarotti to obtain, among others, also the ISO 50001 certification of the Energy Management System, ISO 14064 certification for the quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and their removal, the UNI EN ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental management system, in addition to the registration EMAS Community Eco-management System.
