In the tradition of our culture, thanks to long-term investments, know-how and technical excellence, we work towards the goal of sustainable development in all the Home & Professional and Packaging categories by being one step ahead of market requirements and supporting the global growth of our partners.
Our commitment focuses mainly on three directions:
Consolidating our position of leadership on the international glass market
Broadening our scope to include strategic sectors
Continuing to invest in technology, facilities, production capacity and Marketing
We are well aware of the increasing responsibility that each of us has towards the environment. Thus we work to reduce the environmental impact of all our production processes and are committed to continuous improvement of their sustainability.
We consider it a privilege to have been given the opportunity to enhance the intrinsic sustainability of glass: a hygienic, safe, versatile, entirely and infinitely recyclable material.
Our responsible outlook is evidenced by our having adopted, since 1996, a Quality Management System ISO 9001 certified and by our participation in other initiatives focused on regulating and constantly improving our business.

In addition to its transparency, chemical inalterability and impermeability to liquids and gases, glass possesses numerous positive aspects, also from the sustainability perspective:
By preventing microbes and bacteria from entering the container, it protects the substances it holds from the risk of infection.
Glass can withstand pasteurisation and sterilisation processes, thereby becoming a safe and sterile receptacle.
In contrast with other materials, glass can be recycled and reused an infinite number of times without losing its transparency, purity or quality. So glass provides an example of the circular economy in action, because, once produced, collected and processed, it can become a raw material for new and infinite production cycles.
If correctly disposed of, glass is a material that can contain greenhouse gas emissions (CO2), save energy and reduce to a minimum the need for the raw materials of which it is composed by using cullet from the used glass in recycled waste collections.
Being re-usable and recyclable, glass is a valid, sustainable alternative to disposable containers.
Rethinking all our production systems, materials used and products generated for solutions that promote the Circular Economy
Reducing the weight of products, the number of accessories and the raw materials required by using PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) glass
Designing recyclable products made with fewer, easily separable and recyclable components
No longer thinking in terms of singleuse products, but rather of products with various functions of use and a long life cycle
Responsible purchasing of materials that contain recycled components.
Reducing the use of chemicals, water, energy consumption and waste during processes
