WE ARE A CARBON NEUTRAL COMPANY
Let’s work together to make the world a better place!
Eley, as a manufacturing company, has recently obtained the ISO 14064 Certification (GHG – Greenhouse Gas Emissions), becoming a Carbon Neutral Company.
The ISO 14064 standard is composed of a family of standards aimed at the assessment, management and certification of greenhouse gas emissions by organizations. This certification gives us the opportunity to keep the so-called Greenhouse Gases under control, which normally all organizations emit (even living beings are small emitters of greenhouse gases) and to put on track projects to reduce or cancel them. especially in emerging countries.
The carbon footprint is a measure that expresses in CO2, the total greenhouse gas emissions emitted during the life cycle phases of a product (creation / transformation / production / transport / consumption / end of life), calculating its polluting impact .
This milestone was achieved through a combination of targeted actions aimed at improving the processes, lifestyle and energy sources we use with a view to eco-sustainability.
We have chosen to use 100% renewable energies obtained from photovoltaic panels and clean energy projects for our business and production activities to fully reduce and offset CO2 emissions.
THE COMPENSATION PROJECTS
UKRAINE: waste HEAP Ukraine
Ukraine ranks 1st in Europe and 8th in the world for geological reserves of hard coal. This production has been carried out mainly, for almost 300 years, through mines. In the Donetsk basin there is one of the largest coal deposits in the world. The first project that our company has chosen to support is the redevelopment of the Ukrainian region of Donbass.
The result of continuous mining from coal mines is the formation of coal rock deposits – called mounds. These mounds can lead to fire phenomena with subsequent smoke propagation thus violating the environmental and economic balance of the Donbass mining areas, causing an altered ecological situation, which affects the state of the atmosphere, soil, water, bringing enormous damage to human health and life as well as that of animals and plants.
The project we are supporting involves a complete dismantling of the landfill of “Azovtreyd” Ltd. During the dismantling of the landfill, the rock mass will be removed with special equipment for further processing with the aim of obtaining pure coal destined for boilers, which can then be used as fuel. . Thus, the landfill’s rock mass will be completely transformed back into coal.
The aim of the project is to eliminate the phenomena of self-combustion in the landfill and to obtain additional coal from the residues of its extraction.
Eley and consequently Sendo, by supporting this redevelopment project of the Ukrainian region of Donbass, contributed to the achievement of some of the sustainable development goals for obtaining a better future, a goal that the UN has set itself for 2030.
Specifically, we gave our contribution in:
INDIA: A greener India
The second project that Eley and consequently Sendo has chosen to support in offsetting its carbon footprint is the construction of a greener India through the use of innovative and sustainable products.
The carbon offsetting has been reflected in this second project, in collaboration with an Indian agribusiness, leading sustainable Palm Oil production.
This project consists in the sponsorship of the purchase of a generator, which allows the management of waste coming from the shell and bunches of palm fruits, allowing the obtaining of steam and electricity to be used in the same production plants for processing the oil of Palm tree. In this way, the farm uses the energy obtained from so-called biomass to meet its energy needs and reduce dependence on imports.
The plant helps to conserve local resources, reduce pressure on the environment and ensure better health for the population.
Palm oil, used as a raw material in the food and cosmetics sector, therefore has a sustainable management and processing.
The company also adopts virtuous behavior in support of the local community, as 100% of the employees come from the area in which the company is located. The company offers its employees a medical benefit program with hospitalization support, health insurance, a living allowance and guarantees part-time work for women after maternity.
Employees can also benefit from a scholarship for up to one child. The company offers continuous skills upgrading and learning opportunities through structured career discussions and individual development plans.
By supporting this project, Eley and Sendo contributed to the achievement of the following UN objectives for obtaining a better future:
We believe that by working together to bring about positive change, we can gradually improve everyone’s lifestyle in order to make the world a better place.
