GREEN CORE SINCE 1880

Ever since Carcano was founded 140 years ago, between the Italian Alps and Lake Como, the people who have made it history are certain of our deep bond with the environment and local community.

ALUMINIUM IS SUSTAINABLE

Aluminium metal can achieve high performance through processing.
Aluminium foil for packaging has considerable economic, environmental and social benefits.
Aluminium can be infinitely recycled without quality deterioration.

GREEN ENERGY

Environmental protection has always been one of the cornerstones of our company's growth. This is a constant commitment that translates into the use of over 15% energy from renewable sources thanks to our hydroelectric power-station combined with a photovoltaic system.
The goal is to reach 100% by 2021: we're hard at work!

OPTIMISING RESOURCES

We constantly invest in best practises throughout the entire production process to reduce environmental impact.
The most recent investment concerns a state-of-the-art system that purifies the air and oils from the Delebio plant's lamination process.
Also, the energy produced by our melting furnaces is not dispersed, but recovered by regenerative burners and heat recovery systems which allow efficient use of resources.

PUTTING YOUR SAFETY FIRST

Safety and health in the workplace are the foundations of our company culture, which plays a leading role in the protection and safeguarding of everyone.
Carcano complies with all workplace health and safety laws and regulations in force.

HUMAN RESOURCES AND SOCIAL INITIATIVES

Our Code of Ethics with the Dls Organizational Model. 231, is based on the principle that each worker is an integral and fundamental part of our company, necessary in the creation of a healthy and meritocratic work environment, and constitutes a solid and authentic industrial business in relations with suppliers and customers.
Carcano supports numerous sports and cultural initiatives aimed at social issues, as well as opening its doors to schools and universities to spread national industrial culture.

SUSTAINABILITY CERTIFICATION
Carcano is the first italian manufacturing company that has successfully achieved ASI Performance full Standard certification for its 3 production units. 
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain.
The ASI Performance Standard defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria, with the aim to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain.
