SIT S p A: CO2, SIT obtains Carbon Footprint certification
Three product lines are involved with factories in Italy, Romania, Mexico, China and the Netherlands. The tool is a fundamental hypothesis for the reduction of CO2 emissions
Padova, June 01, 2022 – SIT continues its ESG trajectory and adds another fundamental element to its sustainability roadmap, namely Product Carbon Footprint certification management system (PCP Systematic Approach).
Office Veritas Italyworld leader in inspection, conformity verification and certification services, has certified SIT’s systematic approach to product life cycle analysis, in a “cradle-to-gate” logic according to standards required by the ISO 14067: 2018 standard. The systematic approach makes it possible to calculate the emission values linked to the individual products offered, but also to carry out scenario simulations on the products under development in order to adopt the technical, production and and optimal logistics from a CFP perspective.
The process is therefore an officially recognized tool available to the company to achieve emission reduction objectives.
Chiara de’ Stefani, Corporate Sustainability Director of SIT, comments that “The management of CO2 emissions plays a central role in our sustainability strategy”. “The adoption of the CFP Systematic Approach measurement framework for the certification of our results, in addition to certifying our progress in a qualified and independent manner, provides us with a management tool, a real operational tool to assess the carbon impact of our decisions. . A know-how that has become an asset of the company, in which we will continue to invest”.
As a first field of application, SIT has chosen to focus on three product lines of the Heating division: mechanical controls, fans and electronic controls.
The certificate is valid until 2025 and includes the Italian factories of Rovigo, Montecassiano and Padua; abroad, the factories included in the certification are in Romania, China, Mexico and the Netherlands.
During the year 2023, SIT intends to extend the scope of analysis through the Systematic Approach by adopting the CFP Organization, which is the tool with which it is possible to measure the complete picture its CO2 emissions, both direct (called Scope 1) and indirect from own energy consumption (Scope 2) in addition to indirect emissions generated by the company’s value chain (Scope 3). The CFP of the Organization will be structured in SIT based on the UNI EN ISO 14064-1: 2019 standard and will be subject to certification by an independent third party.
