Environmental sustainability

SIT focuses closely on protecting the collective interest and therefore considers the environment and nature as fundamental and a shared heritage to be protected and defended. SIT is committed to adopting responsible behavior in terms of environmental protection, acting strictly in compliance with applicable environmental rules, in addition to the limit established by any authorizations and provisions received from the competent authorities and refraining from behavior which damages the environment.

Furthermore, the Group is committed to raising awareness among employees, consultants, collaborators and all those who operate in its name and on its behalf regarding the protection of the environment and the minimization of negative impacts.

One of the Group’s two Rovigo facilities performs aluminum casting, mechanical processing, surface treatments, the electromechanical assembly of gas safety, control and regulation systems, and safety and temperature control thermo-sensitive component production. The other facilities in Rovigo, Brasov (Romania), Monterrey (Mexico) and Suzhou (China) perform the electromechanical assembly of gas safety, control and regulation systems. The Hoogeveen (Netherlands) facility produces electronic controls. Electric fans are produced at the Montecassiano (MC) plant for heating purposes, home appliances, and fume exhaust kits.

SIT has implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) at its production facilities in Rovigo (Italy), Monterrey (Mexico) and Brasov (Romania), which are certified to ISO 14001:2015[1]. The system defines specific monitoring and control procedures, assigns clear roles and responsibilities, and guarantees active communications with stakeholders and control bodies. The system also requires the production facilities to annually define initiatives to improve environmental performances. Considerable importance is given to the provisions in place at the Group’s sites to ensure immediate action is taken in case of an environmental emergency. Said provisions guarantee a prompt response in the case of an accidents so as avoid or minimize any environmental impact.

[1] It should be noted that MeteRSit’s facilities were upgraded to the ISO 14001:2015 certification in 2018.
