The strategy of the Group with respect to the management of water resources is implemented through the Brembo Energy and Environment Management System, whereby each plant carries out a risk and opportunities assessment for each process and production phase that has an impact on water resources. The outcome of this analysis leads — for the relevant identified risk or opportunity areas — to mitigation or other actions that may help seize any opportunities.
In parallel to the risk assessment, Brembo runs a yearly company-wide risk evaluation programme linked to company sites located in areas classed as Water Stressed Areas, be it in present or future scenarios. Such evaluation is conducted using the “Aqueduct” digital tool, in accordance to the World Resource Institute’s (WRI) methodology.
As far as water performance is concerned, approximately 1,2 million cubic meters of water were used, decreasing by about 6% compared to 2018. The water mains still constitute the main source of supply (approximately 75%) which not only ensures suitable quality levels, but also a reliably constant supply over time.
