SUSTAINABILITY

Nowadays more than ever, sustainability is a priority for citizens, public institutions and private companies. It is a concept that is often abused but which implications are extremely complicated and extend into three dimensions: social, economic and environmental ones.

Sustainability as a key
to the future

To specify the concept of sustainability, the international community has proposed multiple initiatives involving each of us, which Brenta Imperial actively supports, being aware, as a company, of the importance of its own social role in contributing to sustainable development.

According to the definition given in the Brundtland report (1987), also known as “Our Common Future”, sustainable development can be defined as development “that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
Among the main initiatives promoted at the international level, in 2015 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda which includes 17 goals (Sustainable Development Goals) to be achieved by the year 2030 globally by all UN member states. This means that every country on the planet is called to provide its own contribution to meet these great challenges together.

Sustainability of the Made in Italy

Brenta Imperial firmly believes in Made in Italy being not only a synonym of quality, but also a concrete instrument for a sustainable industry development.

Brenta Imperial distinguish itself by preferring local suppliers with the aim of enhancing the resources of the territory and limiting CO2 emissions into the environment.

Durability and materials quality

Concerning raw materials used for manufacturing, Brenta Imperial uses formaldehyde-free woods and wood-derived products from certified and approved suppliers. The paints and solvents are innovative products made in Italy and in the immediate vicinity with certificates that guarantee their low environmental impact. In particular the solvents are recovered thanks to a distillation plant for the circularity of products being otherwise highly polluting.

In addition to the use of high-quality raw materials, Brenta Imperial combines production with care for details and the constant search for solutions to ensure durable, almost everlasting products. The continuous search for new material solutions finally allows us to combine innovation with circularity.
