Clear and positive values
The success enjoyed by SIM2 is also a reflection of its ethical vision based on values that know no boundaries:
transparency, responsibility and sustainability. SIM2 technology, quality and design all come together in a
positive, healthy and environmentally-conscious workplace. From 1999 to 2008, our Pordenone facility has
cut its electricity consumption by 25% and water consumption by 80%: what’s more, the plan is to have a
photovoltaic system up and running to meet all the company’s energy needs. In the meantime, all external
lighting is provided by new LED lights, which have been developed and installed by a SIM2 subsidiary (Solight
SpA). SIM2’s commitment to sustainability starts as early as the research and development stage, with
an assessment of the products’ environmental impact during the course of their total life cycle (LCA). Our
company favors the use of green, recyclable materials and puts all raw materials through certified laboratory
testing to rule out harmful substances and reduce the use of potentially pollutant substances, such as lead,
mercury, cadmium, chromium, PBB and PBDE. Our company has adopted a “printless” program to reduce
paper consumption and organizes regular courses for our personnel on issues related to the environment
and sustainability, in collaboration with the University of Padua, one of the most prestigious universities in
Europe.
