The Conference will be an important opportunity for discussion on the role of the circular economy in supporting both the post-pandemic economic recovery and the growing need for environmental sustainability. A subject dear to Burgo Group, which has long viewed circular economy as an important lever for the sustainable evolution of its production. Besides being a promoter of the Circular Economy Network, the Group will also be involved in the conference with the speech of Valerio Forti, HSE Director (Health, Safety & Environment), focusing on Burgo Group's actions and projects involving circular economy.
This year’s main focus
The focus of this year's event will be the presentation of the 2022 Report on the Circular Economy in Italy, which assesses Italy's performance according to the European Green Deal – Europe's action plan for ecological transition. Inspired by the Green Deal program, since 2020 Burgo Group has specifically formed a committee for the definition of a gradual transition aimed at reducing emissions, improving energy efficiency, and promoting circular economy.
The Group's responsible approach to the environment, based on management policies and systems and on accreditations, is consistent with the strategic guidelines and objectives set by the United Nations 2030 Agenda.Find out more
Burgo Group has already taken action
Burgo Group is well aware that the implementation of circular economy practices requires devising and adopting innovative solutions: accordingly, the Group has launched various initiatives for more efficient use of resources. From the conversion of production lines with the use of raw materials obtained from the sorted waste collection, such as in the production of container-boards in the Avezzano plant, to projects that involve the reuse of production waste, such as the case of White fibrous Krofta in the Tolmezzo plant, Burgo Group is committed to the progressive introduction of technologies to optimize resources and give new life to by-products deriving from production processes.
Burgo Group perfects its offer of high performance papers for the production of corrugated cardboard: sustainable papers, available with environmental certifications and made with recycled fibres.Find out more
