Impact minimization measures and projects

Together with an innovative heat pump in our manufacturing site in Biasca and an ongoing project to deliver a centralized, biomass-fuelled remote heating plant, our objective is to reduce our carbon footprint to almost zero. In our USA offices, we have reduced our environmental impact by relocating to a LEED Gold building. Further, several projects are ongoing to reduce print and photocopier paper use and to increase separate collection of waste for recycling in all our offices.
