our positive footprint on the environment.
At Bellcaffè we have “adopted” the concept of Eco-Sustainability which - to us – means to guarantee the stability of our eco-system in order to satisfy the needs of our times without compromising, for the future generations, the possibility of satisfying the needs of tomorrow.
That is why at BellCaffè we have started business practices - both in the production lines and in the sale marketing. – That has made us an active part in the environmental policy in accordance with the practices of the Kyoto Protocol whose goal is reducing the Global warming caused by CO2 emissions.
WE ARE OUR ENVIRONMENT
This has lead us to get the Certificate of the ISO 14000:2004 Environmental Management Systems, which demonstrates how our plant meets the international parameters related to the improvement of the processes that have an impact on the environmental aspect. These “good practices” are voluntary and not all the companies take care to apply them in their producing life. Whereas, in our business culture, this means to improve the satisfaction of our customers through the improvement of the production processes - in terms of a better quality, wholesomeness and reliability – the reduction of the impact on the environment of our production, the improvement of the conditions of the human habitat and, consequently, the improvement of everybody’s life on Earth.
In the production lines, our boilers use a re-use programme of the cooking smokes that are re-placed in the roasting process. This has drastically reduced the amount of energy necessary for the processes to produce roasted coffee.
For the actual reduction of CO2 emissions, in particular, at BellCaffè we have set up a photovoltaic plant that has made the company 100% independent from electric energy, by reducing to zero our share of CO2 emission connected to the electricity supply.
In order to reduce our “weight” related to the CarbonFootPrint on the environment, which all the human activities release, we have started to plant a large number of trees for the environmental regeneration of the CO2 level on the environment. Our production aims to the reduction of the amount of non-recyclable waste. In the meantime, in our business and marketing policies, both in Italy and abroad, we have started some processes that encourage and promote recycling products and packages with a low environmental impact in order to raise our customers' awareness on the waste management.
