We want to help create a better world for those who inhabit it today and for those who will inhabit it tomorrow by choosing an ethical and sustainable business model.
So that equality, inclusion and respect for human rights are the basis for equitable and shared well-being.
Servizi Italia’s social sustainability projects.
We support local communities through liberal donations to organizations and associations working in the area. In particular, in recent years we have financed the project “Help us grow. Give us a book!” to donate books to children between the ages of 5 and 11, and supported the AIRC Foundation in research to cure cancer and in spreading correct information about prevention and therapeutic prospects.
ASSO Confederation. Humanitarian mission to Kiev
Following the start of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, we supported a humanitarian mission to Kiev that aims to reorganize the national blood collection service to benefit the war wounded. The initiative, promoted by ASSO Confederation and coordinated by the Biomedical University Campus in Rome, involves several Ukrainian professors and doctors.
Photo exhibition “Coronavirus veterans”
A two-year-long journey that resulted in a photo exhibition and a book in which health workers involved on the front lines of the fight against Coronavirus were able to open up and tell their emotional experiences. We supported Matteo Placucci’s project because we believe in the importance of raising awareness of what happened in hospitals during the pandemic and humanizing the relationship between healthcare workers and patients.
“Let’s start again with bees” project
Servizi Italia is participating in the project "Let's start again with bees" which aims to repopulate the territory and environment with honey bees. Twelve hives have been installed on the land adjacent to the Castellina (PR) office because we wish to contribute actively to the fight against climate change.
Youth sports associations
We have been collaborating for several years with youth sports associations in the area that are involved in getting younger children into sports and also in inclusion for people with disabilities.
We support fundamental research, education, and scientific outreach in health care by sponsoring specialized events, conferences, and congresses. Promotional activities are often carried out in cooperation with professional associations and associations of thematic purpose concerning the health care field and clinical risk management.
Relations with students, schools and universities
We believe that collaboration between the university and business worlds is of strategic importance for the country's innovation and development. That is why we adhere to the CBI – Challenge Based Innovation program of Almacube and the University of Bologna and have promoted a call for applications for 25 scholarships dedicated to employees and their children.
Constant dialogue with the community
We are committed to constant dialogue with the community through corporate pages on LinkedIn, Facebook and YouTube, through articles published monthly on the corporate blog and periodically in trade magazines, local and business newspapers.
Relations with trade associations
We actively participate in the trade association Assosistema, which aims to protect, disseminate and improve the activities of the integrated health care services sector. We join the National Bilateral Body with the aim of encouraging and promoting research on the issues of corporate social responsibility and occupational health and safety.
Social sustainability also translates into actions designed to improve the quality of life of those who work within the company every day: learn how Servizi Italia takes care of its team.
So that the responsible and conscious use of resources is the key to giving future generations the chance to live in a world still full of opportunities.
To reduce energy consumption, we have embarked on a specific path of efficiency and waste reduction that includes: the installation of technologically advanced and interconnected meters on the main consumption centers of the Italian sites; the replacement of boilers and compressors; the elimination of coal from the energy sources used; and the installation of new generation LED lighting systems. We periodically conduct analyses and comparisons of the specific consumption of the energy resources used (methane gas, thermal energy, eucalyptus wood, and diesel oil).
Emissions to the atmosphere and CHG
We constantly strive to control the quantity and quality of atmospheric emissions from our operations. At the Italian sites the steam generators are fired by natural gas; at the Brazilian sites since the generators are fired by wood, the emission chimneys are equipped with ash and particulate abatement systems. Analysis, adjustment and calibration activities are carried out periodically at all sites.
Regarding greenhouse gas emissions Servizi Italia is constantly working to reduce them in close correlation with controlling the consumption of energy resources used for its business directly and indirectly.
Water resources management
Water supply and water use in the production process is a significant environmental aspect precisely because of the nature of the services performed. For this reason, the rational use, optimization of consumption and recovery of water is a priority objective that we pursue by installing process water recovery systems, modifying and modernizing washing machinery, and annually validating production processes to ensure the right balance quality of service and industry technical standards.
Control of the quantity and quality of water discharges is also of paramount importance: all sites are equipped with in-house wastewater treatment plants that bring the water output into compliance with the values required by regulations. In addition, chemical analyses of wastewater are carried out at all plants, either in-house or by external laboratories.
Use of consumables and packaging materials
In carrying out our activities, we purchase different types of packaging materials (those supplied to the customer for the collection of linen to be processed and those used for the final packaging of linen and surgical instruments). We use packaging characterized by minimal plastic thickness and made up of percentages of recycled plastic, and we facilitate the recovery activities of waste paper and plastic packaging.
In terms of chemicals required for washing, sanitizing and reconditioning, we use products with reduced environmental impact that meet most of the criteria drawn from the Ecolabel regulation and comply with current regulations.
Special waste management
The management of special waste (both hazardous and nonhazardous) is another significant environmental issue for Servizi Italia from the perspective of the volumes produced. For this reason we give preference, where possible, to recovery operations over the disposal of waste generated during the production cycle.
The Group has, in addition, initiated a process of digitalization of waste management to ensure greater traceability of the process and is investing in several industrial symbiosis projects to valorize the waste produced and give it a new life.
We believe that responsible management is one of the tools for pursuing sustainable success and creating value for the benefit of all stakeholders who relate to the company.
