Environmental Management System.
Growth and respect for the environment
|MONITORING ACTIVITIES ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ACQUA LETE||ANNO 2014/2007|

Our vision of company growth, firmly rooted in our desire to protect the environment and to provide greater transparency and reliability to the area we work in, in 2007 led us to pursue ISO 14001 certification.
Using the ISO 14001 environmental management tool we keep under constant control all activities that have a direct and indirect impact on the environment: from the consumption of natural resources to waste production, from controlling emissions released into the atmosphere to the use, recycling and disposal of containers, from
waste water to soil and subsoil pollution, not to mention monitoring the “environmental” practices of contractors, subcontractors and suppliers.
Monitoring the environmental impact of our output in order to improve our corporate organisation sustainability led Lete Spa to certify its Carbon Footprint in 2012 in compliance with the ISO 14064-1:2012 standard and the “GHG Protocol”. The analysis of this indicator over time, which summarises the contribution to the greenhouse effect in terms of tonnes of carbon dioxide, allows us to verify the effectiveness of the management policies that we have implemented in terms of sustainability.
Furthermore, thanks to the project co-financed by the Ministry for the Environment andProtection of Land and Sea, to analyse the carbon footprint in the life cycle of consumer products, an environmental product declaration was made and certified for Lete and Sorgesana.
The environmental declaration was organised by calculating the environmental impact for the whole life cycle of products, using the LCA method as established by the International EPD System (PCR 2010:11 “Bottled waters, not sweetened or flavoured”, version 1.1 of 05/03/2012)
The EPD is therefore an important tool for actively managing/reducing all factors that lead to the release of greenhouse gases.
Protecting the environment, innovative and responsible choices, the application of quality control systems that are constantly updated to keep abreast of every new development, and investment in technologies that can combine the highest production standards with the highest level of product safety and environmental protection are the best guarantees for satisfying the needs of our consumers by being ethical in our activity as a business.
