UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs):

integrated within Alcantara S.p.A’s short-term objectives represent an ambitious agenda and include 17 goals. The initiative aims to reach three fundamental objectives between now and 2030:
• end poverty in all its forms;
• fight inequality and injustice;
• combat climate change and its impacts.

SUPER CORE PRIORITY SUPPLIERS:

suppliers working regularly at Alcantara S.p.A. sites and/or that are partners in a production/distribution process.

CORE PRIORITY SUPPLIERS:

suppliers occasionally working at Alcantara S.p.A. sites and/or that may become partners in a production process and/or that are suppliers of important raw materials.

CARBON DISCLOSURE PROJECT (CDP):

a charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, States and regions to manage their environmental impact and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

HIGH EFFICIENCY COGENERATION PLANT:

cogeneration consists in the simultaneous production of electricity and heat.
This allows a greater energy efficiency because the hot fumes from the gas turbine are used to produce steam. Cogeneration plants can achieve energy efficiency levels of around 90% lowering in the meantime the GHG emissions compared to traditional system for electricity and heat production.

TRIGENERATION PLANT:

a trigeneration plant, or combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP), produces cooling (chilled water) as well as heat and electricity. This allows significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and high energy efficiency.
