As a family-run company with a history stretching back over 90 years, corporate responsibility is part of Bussetti’sSustainability is a key consideration in every area of activity, from development to production. One example is Bussetti’s own hydroelectric power plant in Marchtrenk. This is currently being supplemented with a 270 kilowatt photovoltaic system, allowing Bussetti to generate most of the energy required for production in-house, using renewables. This represents a reduction in CO2 emissions of around 30 percent. Particulate pollution on the works premises is significantly reduced through the use of particle filters installed on the diesel-powered forklift trucks.
Bussetti is constantly striving to innovate in the fields of environmentally-friendly production methods and products. For instance, the company offers a special range of defoamers for architectural paint and coatings made from sustainable raw materials. These are used by customers to produce organic paints and biobased renders.
Many of Bussetti’s key products are made from natural fats and oils. The company avoids the use of petrochemicals as raw materials wherever possible. In total, 30 percent of the raw materials originate from renewable sources.
In figures, this represents three million kilos in every ten million kilos of raw materials.
Equally, every effort is made to ensure that once a product has finished its useful life, it is returned to the biological and technical cycle as a raw material.
Sustainability plays a major role in all areas, which is why we want to supply production as selfsufficiently as possible with renewable energy.
A careful analysis of the current situation is the prerequisite for every successful optimization process.
From this we derive measures to improve the environmental impact and thus also our environmental indicators.
Die Basis für viele Bussetti-Hauptprodukte wird aus natürlichen Fetten und Ölen gewonnen. Bussetti verzichtet so weit wie möglich auf petrochemische Rohstoffe. Insgesamt stammen 30 Prozent der eingesetzten Rohstoffe aus nachwachsenden Quellen.
In absoluten Zahlen sind das drei von zehn Millionen Kilogramm Rohstoffen.
Gleichermaßen wird darauf geachtet, dass nach Ablauf ihres Lebenszyklus die Produkte als Werkstoffe wieder in den biologischen und technischen Kreislauf zurückfließen können.
