Development and sustainability: the Isoclima Group’s response to climate change

13/06/2023

 

Climate change is an issue that we must address on multiple levels, from a professional and business perspective and in the personal, day-to-day management of our lives.

Greenhouse gas emissions, the burning of fossil fuels and the ever-increasing enthronisation of entire portions of the planet have brought about a change in the climate. Its consequences are important, because they negatively affect biodiversity and the quality of life of people all around the world.

We at Isoclima Group have always been extremely sensitive to the issue of development and sustainability. Before there was any talk of a climate emergency, we had already set up a management system to improve our environmental performance.

 

Development and Sustainability as a goal: our guidelines

 

We started out with an analysis of the reference context in order to adopt and implement best practices for the development and sustainability of our planet. We know that we are living at a time of profound and continuous change, at a climate-related, industrial and personal level.

Progress has opened the door to digitalisation, but also to population growth and the exhaustion of resources.

But what do Development and Sustainability mean exactly? Personally, we have embraced the 1987 statement of the United Nations Brundtland Commission, according to which sustainability means “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs”. An integrated approach on several levels, therefore, which deals with economic development with a particular focus on the environment.

 

Vision and mission of our sustainability policy

 

To draw up a truly effective development and sustainability policy we studied what has been done over the years on an international scale. As a result, we identified a clear, well-defined mission and vision for the adoption of virtuous environmental protection policies.

Our main objective is to develop and implement customised glass solutions offering high quality levels and a technological content such as to improve the end product in a variety of ways. Our goal is to not only to anticipate our customers' needs, but to sense in which direction policies to protect the planet are headed.

In this way, we expect, in the not-too-distant future, to act even more in the interest of existing and future generations.

Our commitment is to be able to “look through” glass solutions that are safe, high-performing and elegant, while truly respecting the environment
