Efficiency and environmental protection in production processes

The Brembo Group is aware that each of its production activities has an environmental impact


At Brembo the development of high-quality products with an increasingly lower environmental impact is combined with ongoing innovation of production processes, through the adoption of solutions that make it possible to reduce the use of resources during all processing phases, ensuring efficient use of raw materials and proper handling of waste.

In order to ensure systematic and structured management of environmental risks, the Group has developed and maintains an up-to-date environmental management system based on the ISO:14001 standard.

The Group voluntarily submits its system for periodical assessments by independent third-party organisations to ensure its full compliance with international standards.


 

Designing innovation



Reducing environmental impact is one of the primary goals of Brembo product innovation.

The company invests roughly 5% of its turnover in R&D projects, actively participates in various working groups facilitating automotive industrial research and is the recipient of national and European funding for innovation and research.

 

 

Efficiency and environmental protection in production processes

 

The Group’s operations with the highest energy consumption are the metal alloy casting processes, operations that, for Brembo, have the greatest environmental impact, particularly in greenhouse gas emission terms. In addition to investments in technology and services to protect the environment, the human factor is a decisive element for ensuring the effective protection of the environment in everyday corporate activities. Because of this, more than 12,000 hours of the natural capital training were provided in 2016.



The efficient use of natural resources, such as energy, water, and raw materials is crucial for the Group's environmental approach, which can be summed up in the application of the most restrictive standards and better technology, so as to ensure excellent performances.

Through the efficient management of production it is possible to optimize the energy requirement and reducing the gases released into the atmosphere.

The technology investment programmes and research projects supported by the Group, also in partnership with other qualified bodies in the sector, are heading in this direction.

 
 





In order to ensure transparency and accurate information about environmental aspects, Brembo has voluntarily adhered ,with excellent results, to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) initiatives. This independent organization promotes synergies between the financial community and the business world, monitoring and advocating for commitment to limiting climate change and ensuring responsible and sustainable use of water resources.

The full picture of greenhouse gas emissions and the main mitigating actions put in place to reduce them are the subject of the CDP questionnaire, enabling a periodic monitoring and an effective reporting available for stakeholders.




The Group has set specific medium and long-term objectives to reduce greenhouse gases and implement Brembo’s commitment to environmental protection and combating climate change.

Brembo is committed to reducing Scope 1 and Scope 2 direct and indirect emissions by 19% compared to the levels measured in 2015

 

 
 

Waste reduction

Greater efficiency in using raw materials in production processes translates into reduced costs and containment of waste and processing scrap, which benefits the environment. In particular, the Group has implemented behaviours that allow to minimize waste generation, re-use waste as far as possible, and exploit by-products within collateral supply chains.
