Waste management​


​At Brembo the conviction that the linear “take-make-dispose” economic model based on having access to only seemingly unlimited resources is increasingly ill-adapted to Brembo’s environment, is well established, especially given the need to access high quality raw materials with sustainable costs whilst being mindful of the environment. ​

The typical situation at certain production facilities — such as cast iron foundries — is a clear example of how this concept is put into practice at Brembo. A foundry primarily uses secondary raw materials, such as cuttings and discarded materials produced during mechanical processing, thereby contributing to circular waste management. The vertical integration of Brembo’s factories is a positive example of how having a foundry near the machining and assembly facility — typically housed within a single industrial complex — in most cases enables immediate reuse of scrap metal in melting furnaces. It is therefore possible to state that by their own nature the Brembo production processes are perfectly suitable for a “take-make-reuse” model which constitutes the basis for the circular economy development model. The progressive extension of circularity to all production processes is an opportunity that Brembo intends to seize in order to ensure a steady business growth that’s in balance with the environment. ​


​During 2019 Brembo generated over 384,500 tons of waste, a similar amount to the one produced in 2018, and the waste classed as hazardous stayed at 5% of the total, whilst nonhazardous ones were 95% following the inclusion into the statistics of new plants that were added to the 2018 reports. Worthy of note is the increase in the percentage of nonhazardous waste destined for recycling (+25% compared to 2018.
