The expertise and experience gained in over 70 years of activity allows us to support our customers right from the design stage, advising and assessing the best technical solutions together to create complex products with high quality features. Constant research, specialist expertise and continuous investment in technology have ensured that our company has grown steadily over the years.
In 2019, we built a tri-generator at the Cisano Bergamasco site, specifically designed for our facilities and needs. This system allows us to produce our own electricity, which meets more than two thirds of the company's needs. In addition, the thermal energy released by the cogenerator is used entirely at our site, to heat and cool our offices, for production purposes and to run a water purifier.
We have a water purifier connected to the tri-generator to protect the environment by reducing the volume of process waste by 98.5%. In line with the circular economy philosophy, the evaporated water is in fact used to operate the system.
The purifier means we can reuse 700,000 litres/month of waste water, thus reducing fresh water consumption and avoiding discharge into the public sewers. A significant economic, environmental and health benefit that allows us to conserve fresh groundwater, the most precious resource for the entire planet.
Digita is a project designed in-house at M.S.Ambrogio, with the aim of drastically reducing paper and energy consumption in production departments by digitising all paper documentation in use.
This project led us to equip all production departments with more than 100 tablets. Our operators will be able to use them to check technical documentation and interact with the SAP system, thereby significantly improving document management and conserving the environment.
We conducted an analysis of greenhouse gas emissions for the Cisano Bergamasco and Chignolo d'Isola plants. The analysis gave very satisfactory results regarding M.S.Ambrogio's low contribution to direct emissions, only 8% of the total value. This remarkable performance was mainly attributed to the choice of purchasing raw materials from suppliers located in Italy (67%) and neighbouring countries. However, the most significant reduction opportunity lies in the supply chain itself, which currently accounts for 84% of M.S.Ambrogio's greenhouse gas emissions and on which we have focused in order to plan effective strategies to reduce our company's climate impact.
