Elfi Electronics has embarked on the path to reduce the corporate carbon footprint by 2024
February 16 is National Energy Saving and Sustainable Lifestyles Day, February 18 is International Energy Saving Day. The national day, also famous with the slogan “M’illumino di Meno”, launched by Caterpillar, the RadioRai 2 program in 2005, on the occasion of the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol.
In Italy this day has become synonymous with many small energy saving gestures, such as planting trees, choosing gentle mobility, turning off the lights, organizing anti-waste candlelit dinners.
We at Elfi Electronics have started the process to obtain the Corporate carbon footprint ISO 14064-1.
“We have decided to start the process of measuring and then reducing the Company Carbon Footprint – says Leonardo Fabbri, CEO of Elfi Electronics -. In practice we have started the process that will lead us to measure the annual carbon footprint, i.e. of gas emissions greenhouse, so as to start reducing them from 2024″.
Elfi Electronics has embarked on the path to obtain the Corporate carbon footprint ISO 14064-1.
To be compliant with the 14064-1 standard, a company must prepare:
• an inventory of GHGs (GreenHouse Gases – greenhouse gases) compliant with the requirements of the standard;
• a data management procedure referring to GHGs, to be included in the corporate EMS (Environmental Management System);
• a GHG Report intended for reporting to the public (perhaps with different levels of detail with respect to the various stakeholders).
“The reporting is obviously also and above all oriented towards the subsequent carbon management actions – continues Fabbri -, useful for reducing and offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions calculated within the Organizational Carbon Footprint (GHG emissions inventory)”.
“A concrete gesture that we make as a company and that looks to the present and the future of the environment – says Fabbri“.
He concludes by quoting the founder of scouting, Robert Baden Powel:
“We did not inherit this world from our parents, we borrowed it from our children”.
