Reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing and non-manufacturing processes

The Group sees its commitment to the environment and conservation of natural resources as essential to the process of responsible and sustainable development.

It is fully committed to minimizing the impact of its activities on the environment in all areas from manufacturing processes to logistics, dealerships and commercial and administrative offices. Efforts to reduce its environmental footprint and continuously improve environmental performance are an integral part of the Group’s overall industrial strategy.

The Group’s focus on the environment also includes targeted activities such as eComau, a division of Comau whose primary activity is working with customers on innovative environmental solutions for their industrial processes. In 2013, eComau reported a 67% year-over-year increase in revenues to around €1.5 million.
