Brembo’s capacity to innovate and exploit its own expertise as a strategic lever for maintaining its technological and commercial leadership at global level can also be gauged by the patents filed by the Group over time.​

To ensure maximum safety and quality of its products, Brembo adopts a preventive and proactive approach enabling the company to anticipate any problems and criticalities along the entire production cycle and take preventive correction measures.


 

Environment

 

The Group seeks energy efficiency and rational use of energy in its own production processes. These activities are fundamental for achieving the targets that Brembo has set itself regarding the reduction in CO2 emissions in all the production plants.​

This result in reducing emissions of CO2 was achieved thanks to energy efficiency-boosting projects and to the implementation of renewable energy solutions.​

When choosing energy sources, Brembo favours renewable energy sources over fossil fuels, by also increasing its self-production capacity, including through the installation of photovoltaic panels.

All online from the Treedom platform.
