Reducing our

environmental impact

Our ongoing journey to improve our environmental impact.

We are on a journey to reduce our impact on the planet through key actions across our entire value chain. 

We are striving for efficiency in our plant

At our plant in San Pellegrino Terme, near Bergamo, we maximize the efficiency of all daily activities, with the final objective of reducing the environmental impact of our operations as much as possible. The main areas of attention include water management in the plant and emissions’ reduction. Thanks to this approach we saved over 171 million litres of water between 2018 and 2022 and reduced emissions from production processes by 15% in carbon intensity over the same period. Moreover, since 2011, 100% of our purchased electricity has come from renewable sources. 

Furthermore, we implement strategies aimed at recovering waste materials for reuse, transforming waste into a resource. To this end the Group has an agreement with HeraAmbiente, which ensures that 100% of waste from the plants is recovered. 


We are building a plant at one with nature

S.Pellegrino natural mineral water will soon move to an even more eco-friendly home, while renewing the existing plant in Val Brembana. Designed by the award-winning Bjarke Ingels Group, it embraces the concept of Hedonistic Sustainability: sustainable architecture integrated with its natural surroundings, which increases well-being and pleasure for society. 

The innovative construction of this new Factory of the Future will help mitigate the plant's environmental impact, thanks to emissions-reducing features like LED lighting, photovoltaic panels and a heat recovery system. It will also aim to operate on a “zero water impact” model, reusing rainwater and process water for irrigation, building services and factory processes. We foresee a reduction in water consumption of 25,000 m3/year. 

What’s more, by creating a new route for trucks, it will significantly reduce the impact of traffic in the valley. 


We are moving towards greener transport

We want to minimise the impact of transportating our products. In recent years, we have prioritised rail transport wherever possible, favouring load optimisation, creating strategic logistics partnerships, and using cutting-edge vehicles fuelled by both liquefied natural gas (LNG),bio LNG (a biological liquefied natural gas that greatly reduces CO2 emissions) and pioneering electric trucks in some of our markets as well as biofuel for our transport overseas.
