SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

We work hard every day to protect the environment. That’s the only way we can make naturally good, high-quality products.

 

Our respect for the land is deep-rooted indeed.

NONNO NANNI USES CLEAN ELECTRICITY

Nonno Nanni acquires clean electricity from renewable sources, like solar, water and wind energy.

The cheese packaging bears the logo that highlights this feature.

CARBON FOOTPRINT

 

 

 

Emissions of greenhouse gases are among the primary causes of global pollution.

 

Nonno Nanni is committed historically to the cause of sustainability, and once again this year has calculated and offset its Carbon Footprint, a measurement that reflects the total emissions of greenhouse gases — direct and indirect — associated with the production of: Nonno Nanni Stracchino 125 g, Nonno Nanni Stracchino with probiotic milk ferments 125 g, Nonno Nanni Squaquerello 250 g and Nonno Nanni Robiola 100 g.

 

The Carbon Footprint was calculated taking into account the entire production chain, considering both direct equivalent CO2 emissions generated during actual production of the cheese, and indirect emissions occurring upstream (for example during milk production on dairy farms) and downstream (consumption and end of life cycle).

CARBON FOOTPRINT

 

 

 

Calculation of the Carbon Footprint was conducted according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and validated by CSQA Certificazioni Srl.

 

Nonno Nanni has initiated actions designed to offset the quantity of greenhouse gas emitted and calculated as noted above, contributing to environmental sustainability initiatives, one in Italy and another abroad; the company has also taken steps to reduce levels of energy consumption in its production plant.

RESPECT FOR ANIMALS

Nonno Nanni has built solid relationships with the local farmers, promoting sustainable farming through continuous veterinary supervision and strict compliance with standards and regulations on animal welfare.

ENERGY SAVING

Nonno Nanni carefully monitors water and energy consumption to minimise waste, whilst ensuring efficient production within the plants.

WASTE MANAGEMENT AND RECYCLABLE PACKAGING

In recent years, Nonno Nanni has doubled the amount of waste recycling in its facilities. This commitment to reduce waste continues with the use of special packaging, which includes 100% recyclable inner trays.

OPTIMISING RESOURCES

Nonno Nanni uses a high energy efficiency system to generate its own electricity. The heat produced by the motor is used to generate steam for the milk pasteurisation process, and hot water for cleaning and sanitisation of production areas and to heat the factory.

BIOLOGICAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT

Activated sludge biological waste water treatment plant. The activated sludge is then
used as a fertiliser in agriculture (under authorisation from the province).

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANT

A 1887 m2 photovoltaic system runs on the roof of the factory where Nonno Nanni potato gnocchi are produced.
