GUARANTEE OF ORIGIN

Etifix S.r.l. has chosen to use 100% renewable energy of certified Zero Impact® origin

The Guarantee of Origin is a certification of the production of electricity from renewable sources (article 34 of Legislative Decree 28/11). It aims to allow electricity suppliers to prove to end customers the amount of energy from renewable sources present in their energy mix. Il nostro fornitore LifeGate certifica il 100% della propria energia elettrica.

According to estimates made by LifeGate, for each kWh from hydroelectric plants, carbon dioxide emissions are equal to 23.24 grCO₂eq. To make the renewable energy cycle totally clean, LifeGate Energy makes use of the project Zero Impact®: the carbon dioxide generated by the production and distribution chain of the supply was offset by carbon credits coming from energy efficiency projects and interventions by the creation and protection of growing forests in Italy and around the world.

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION

The wastes reborn to new life

Etifix has been active for years on the topic of waste reduction, contributing to its containment through processes that enhance production waste, transforming and re-using them to prevent them from becoming a cost for the company and the environment.

For example, we have activated a recycling system for siliconized paper scraps.

We are proud to have been able to reuse this material, without having to accumulate it in landfills or burn it in a waste-to-energy plant, with economic costs for the company and environmental costs for the planet in terms of CO2 and micro-particles.

GREEN COLLABORATIONS

Recycle the silicone paper

The silicon paper optimization and recycling process is spreading around the world but we hope that many companies will adhere to the best practices proposed by our supplier Avery Dennison and their partner Cycle4green which we also implement.

Thanks to this collaboration we can recycle siliconized paper (our waste) turning it into new coated printing paper, and the positive impact is enormous! (calculated data on 1 mio /m2)

TANGIBLE RESULTS

The results of our green collaborations

We are proud to inform our customers and suppliers of the following:

Over the past 5 years, Etifix has recycled 53 tons of silicone paper per year, contributing to a reduction of 106.5 tons of CO2 emissions into the environment, equal to that absorbed by a forest with 5700 trees.

This is the result of just one year, and we will certainly strive to improve, the hope is that others will follow our path, in order to contribute to the preservation of our planet, reinventing a different use of resources with new technologies.
