Guala Closures releases 10th sustainability report
Guala Closures Group is meeting or exceeding many of its environmental impact reduction goals, according to its latest sustainability report.
Its 10th annual sustainability report, covering 2020, showed that despite the Covid-19 pandemic the company managed to hit targets in areas such as carbon footprint levels, eco-design guidelines and increased use of recycled materials, as well as introducing a diversity and inclusion charter.
Franco Bove, COO of Guala Closures, said: "In a year when the global pandemic presented many challenges on every front, the group never lost its focus on the important, long-term sustainability goals it set itself.
"I can report that in all aspects of the business, the company continues to meet these targets and looks forward to 2021 with the confidence that it can do even better."
Among the milestones that Guala Closures Group has reached so far are:It is now powering five of its plants entirely from renewable energy sources. It has decreased its water consumption by 17 per cent compared to 2019, partly due to the installation of trigeneration equipment at its Spinetta Marengo plant and the implementation of a series of projects at its Indian plants. Study of new materials accelerated in 2020 thanks to the launch of group eco-design guidelines, and it also launched a sustainable closures range: Blossom.
