Epta meets Carbon Trust Standard

ITALY: Epta’s offices in Milan and the production sites at Limana, Casale Monferrato, Solesino and Pomezia have achieved compliance with the Carbon Trust Standard (CTS). 

This international certification attests to the company’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, along possessing a strategic plan for continuous improvement of its performance for the future.

The standard has been achieved by more than 1,100 companies around the world. It is designed to help guide industries to a responsible and optimal management of its greenhouse gas emissions.

The Carbon Trust Standard (CTS) is based on three specific aspects: the complete collection of the data on energy consumption, the reduction of its Carbon Footprint in a given reference period and good management of its emissions, based on greenhouse gas monitoring. During the assessment period, Epta marked the achievement of a milestone in 2019 with an absolute reduction of tCO2e emissions of 2.1% and a relative decrease in tco2e /worked hours of 6.3%, for an overall qualitative assessment score of 75%.
