At the beginning of the year, the company was among the companies most attentive to the climate according to the 2023 ranking drawn up by the italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Pianeta 2030 and Statista, a company specialized in market research, ranking and analysis of company data. The list shows the list of the 130 Italian companies that have most significantly reduced the ratio between their CO2 emissions and turnover: the Paduan company appears at 29th in the general ranking, second among companies that deal with industrial products and components, only after the Lombard Gefran.
The analysis concerns the rate of reduction in the intensity of emissions between 2019 and 2021 of 550 companies active in the country, selected on the basis of turnover or listing on the Italian Stock Exchange: CO2 consumption was assessed, divided into emissions direct, such as the use of fuels for heating and for the fleet and refrigerant gases, and indirect, which derive from the generation of purchased electricity, heating, cooling and steam.
