For more efficient processes

Reducing the impact of our activities on the environment is a constant priority at Vesuvius. Vesuvius targets the highest standards of quality, safety and sustainability in its own operations in an endeavour to meet the global expectations of its customers and stakeholders.

Energy consumption and CO2 emissions are regularly monitored and taken into account in all our investment programs. All our factory emissions are proactively managed in accordance with local regulations. Special efforts are made to analyse our present operations and take appropriate actions to reduce our emissions.

Managing our energy intensity is part of enhancing our cost competitiveness. This also contributes to improving the total environment impact of our customers. It is part of our commitment to the communities in which we operate.

The Energy Conservation Plan was launched in 2011 with the objective of reducing our normalised energy consumption by 10% over the next 3 years. We achieved this reduction after 4 years, and in June 2015 we reset our focus and set the objective of a 10% improvement (using 2014 as our base year) by 2018. Managing our energy intensity is part of enhancing our cost competitiveness. It also contributes to improving the total environmental impact of our customers.
