Cablotech’s primary objectives have always been to Protect and improve the work environment by adopting solutions capable of optimizing it in a sustainable way by developing the economy and promoting the well-being of people.
In 1969 John McConnell, during the UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, proposed to “celebrate the life and beauty of the Earth to promote peace” with the aim of inducing all men to take serious measures to preserve and renew the ecological balance on which all life on Earth depends. The proposal gained a strong consensus and the first celebration of Earth Day was on April 22nd, 1970. The event, with a purely ecological character, now involves more than 180 countries and is celebrated every year all over the world.
On September 25th, 2015, the United Nations approved the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and since 2019 Europe has placed the “Green Economy” at the center of its policy, inviting “to work from an international perspective, encouraging countries, ‘industry and people to join in this mission”.
Since 1994, the year of its foundation, Cablotech has always shared these principles aimed at preserving the environment, trying to adopt all the tools available to act daily as a green company. It began with the separate collection of plastic, paper, cardboard and the disposal of waste from the processing of electrical cables to ensure the recovery of copper wires, in compliance with the environmental laws governing the complex sector of special waste.
In 1999 the company moved to its current 3200 square meter headquarters. During the renovation phase, all the asbestos roofing was disposed of and replaced with a thermal insulating base on which a 47 kW photovoltaic system was placed, sufficient to cover the company’s energy needs.
Over the years, the company has never stopped integrating new tools that promote energy saving and improve the lives of its employees.
The previously used boiler has been replaced with a new condensing one; the windows were replaced with double glazing to optimize thermal insulation.
The lighting system has also been renewed: the lamps have been replaced with a new LED system which not only improves the visual effect for workers, but is also allowing a 50% consumption reduction. An adiabatic cooling system was installed which leads to an improvement in the internal temperature with a reduction of ¾ degrees. Finally 200 m² of green area were created.
Cablotech persists in the transformation process into a green company with the aim of operating responsibly in compliance with international standards to improve energy efficiency by exploiting renewable sources, reduce energy costs to optimize the budget dedicated to production and increase its reputation.
According to a recent study by Unioncamere (source), in recent years there has been a real acceleration of companies investing in green to promote sustainability and efficiency. If the number of companies oriented and adhering to these aspects is constantly growing, it follows that the Green Economy has evident positive effects, not only limited to the environmental issue, but they also affect competitiveness, favouring company performance.
We hope these evidences will push companies, which still didn’t, to convert by adopting more sustainable models.
