In line with the indications of the global scientific community, Brembo's policy is to maximise efficiency in the use of energy while
keeping CO2eq and other pollutant emissions to a minimum. This policy is aimed at
minimising the environmental impact and
continuously improving energy performance, reducing energy intensity and CO2eq emissions due to production processes and at the same time ensuring economically sustainable operations.
In line with what has been expressed through the Environment and Energy Policy, Brembo has defined a
strategy aimed at the progressive reduction of energy consumption, designed both to cut processing costs and reduce the Group's contribution to the emission of climate-altering substances. In order to reach these objectives, and in keeping with that has been set out in its Environment and Energy Policy, the Group has provided itself with an
Energy Management System compliant with
ISO 50001:2018, extending it gradually to an increasing number of sites.
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. As a result, the Group’s commitment to purchase renewable energy also continued in 2021. In particular, the
energy quota from renewable sources which the Group procured rose from 43% in 2020 to
53% in 2021. Self-production is also a further area of intervention.
energy consumption optimisationmeasures have produced major savings and reduced costs significantly, both in the Group’s older plants built with previous-generation technology, and in the more recently constructed plants which, built with high energy efficiency, cutting-edge technologies, have focused on the management procedures connected with electricity use in both general technical and processing systems. Overall the measures implemented in 2021 in the various production sites
reduced energy consumption by 105,581 GJ, equivalent to 16,062 tonnes of emissions of CO2eq.
