bancor for sustainability
When we talk about corporate sustainability we refer to a new concept of entrepreneurial activity, according to which the ultimate goal of business activity cannot consist solely in maximizing profit (typically a short-term objective), but must be extended to the creation of value in the long term, to the advantage of all business interlocutors and the needs of future generations.
With the aim of being sustainable, bancor has adopted new operating models that allow it to generate value both in terms of social results for its network and in preserving the value of natural resources (positive impact on the environment).
All this translates into positive returns for the company itself and for its fair economic results: being green, in fact, pays off!
Among the main initiatives adopted by bancor for environmental sustainability we find:
- The focus of its core business on dematerialisation, thus also supporting its customer network to evolve towards innovative and sustainable business logics
- The self-production of 80% of electricity through the installation of a photovoltaic system at our HeadQuarter
- The adoption of LPG cars with the aim of reducing C02 emissions
- Registration at ecoR’it, consortium for the disposal of packaging
- ISO 14001 Certification – adoption of an Environmental Management System
To be able to never fail the satisfaction of its customers, bancor has chosen to certify its Quality Management System through the ISO 9001 certification, an internationally recognized standard (and accepted in most countries of the world), which certifies that the products and / or services of a particular company are created and supplied to its customers following certain standards, policies, processes.
Taking care of the environment in which we live and preventing our companies from causing negative impacts on the environment are two of the most important challenges for companies today. As evidence of its commitment in terms of sustainability, bancor has chosen to certify its Environmental Management System by adhering to the ISO 14001 standard, internationally recognized (and accepted in most countries of the world), which certifies the control and maintenance compliance with legislation and monitoring of environmental performance
