Environmental management and risk management systems

The IMA Group has prepared programs and initiatives designed to progressively reduce environmental impact and improve efficiency in the use of energy resources.

This line of action also includes the path initiated by the Parent Company IMA S.p.A. for the certification of its Environmental Management System according to ISO 14001, the most accredited standard in the world. During 2019 certification of the registered offices of the parent company, IMA S.p.A., in Via Emilia 428-442, and of the premises in Via I Maggio 14-16 in Ozzano dell’Emilia (Bologna, Italy) was confirmed and extended to the premises in Via Piave 16, Ozzano dell’Emilia, Calenzano (Florence, Italy) and Bentivoglio (Bologna, Italy). Again in 2019, ISO 14001 certification was confirmed for Corazza S.p.A. as well and the same result was achieved by GIMA TT S.p.A.

The environmental impact of IMA companies shows essentially in three significant areas:

• waste management;

• energy consumption;

• greenhouse gas emissions.

It is worth emphasizing that IMA fully complies with any regulations concerning the handling of its environmental impact in these areas, as each IMA company has obtained all the required authorizations from the competent authorities, where applicable.

To a lesser extent, inasmuch as they potentially derive from the work performed in the workplace, IMA has carried out specific measurements at its main plants aimed at assessing and highlighting its own regulatory compliance in terms of the acoustic and electromagnetic pollution of the surrounding environment, also respecting the quality objectives set by legislation for the protection of any civilian populations living near industrial sites.

The main activities carried out included:

• installation of technological systems with a lower direct or indirect environmental impact;

• monitoring of the consumption by main energy carriers.

The environmental data reported here reflect the higher production volumes typical of recent years, from 2010 onwards, thanks to an increase in orders and sales, as well as the change in the Group scope as a result of new acquisitions.
