2 Megawatt

of photovoltaic panels
installed on the roof of our buildings

The first energy efficiency retrofit works involved the roofs of the premises in Vestone where today solar radiation is used to produce electricity in the production plants in a clean and renewable way by means of photovoltaic panels.

The photovoltaic plant on the premises in Vestone develops an output of 1 Megawatt and produces a quantity of energy equal to 11% of the yearly requirement of the entire building, making the moulding department, composed of over 50 production plants, energetically autonomous.

Following the retrofit in Vestone, in 2012 another photovoltaic plant was installed with an output of 1 Megawatt on the roof of the production and logistics centre in Vobarno.


1.788.146 kWh/year

produced in 2013

Reduction in CO2

Solar energy

In 2014 approximately 100 m2 of solar panels were installed with the capacity of producing renewable thermal energy both for production and for water facilities in the two premises in Vestone and Vobarno.


Total thermal energy produced yearly:

55.380 kWh

Reduction in CO2 emissions in a year:

1,2 tonnes

Equal to: 4,9 TOE

(tonnes of oil equivalent)

Equivalent to the
thermal energy required for:

42.335 hot showers (40°C)



The centralization of the production in the two poles of Vestone and Vobarno has allowed:

  • transport logistics to be optimized for clients thanks to the new finished goods warehouse.
  • The number of inter-company transports of materials to be reduced.

Besides the reduction in fuel consumption, this has also resulted in improved traffic mobility in the Valle Sabbia area.

Reduction in fuel consumption:

52.619 litres/year

Reduction in CO2 emissions in a year:

110 tonnes

Equal to: 46 TOE

(tonnes of oil equivalent)

Equal to:

894.529 km/year

And the annual consumption of

60 cars


The installation of a new heating plant, the replacement of the old roof with a new one with less heat loss, the installation of a floor heating system replacing the radiant strips in the areas dedicated to production, in the period from 2007 to 2013, has resulted in:


Reduction in methane consumption 92.191 Sm3


over 2007

Reduction in CO2 emissions
in a year compared with 2007:

17,1 tonnes

Equal to: 77,6 TOE

(tonnes of oil equivalent)

Equal to a consumption
for domestic use and heating of:

236 people/year



The design of the building with a saw-tooth roof which allows the passage of natural daylight, the elimination of wastage, the use of lowconsumption lighting and the introduction of dimming devices that allow the quantity of artificial light to be adjusted depending on the intensity of natural daylight, have resulted in:

Energy savings of:

140.618 kWh/year

Reduction in CO2 emissions
in a year

66,1 tonnes

Equal to: 2.964 lamp bulbs

left on for 5 hours a day for 365 days

Equivalent to the consumption of electricity for lighting purposes in a year of:

1.562 people


Many upgrades were also carried out on the production plants in terms of energy efficiency improvement.
All the measures were aimed at reducing electricity consumption and involved the installation of:

  • Inverters on the presses.
  • Inverters on the cooling system pumps.
  • Inverters on the compressors.
  • Inverters on the well pumps.
  • Warming covers on the pipe extruding line.
  • Warming covers on the presses in the factory in Vestone.
  • Replacement of the dryer of the compressed air line.

The results were:

Total reduction in consumption:

914.312 kWh/year

Reduction in CO2
emissions in a year

430 tonnes

Equal to: 171 TOE

(tonnes of oil equivalent)

Corresponding to an

Information Technology

Many measures were taken aimed at optimizing the IT infrastructure such as:

  • Transfer of servers to blade environment.
  • Increasing employee awareness of the conscientious use of the PC.

These measures are perhaps less well-known in the field of industrial ecology, but are no less important, in fact, they resulted in:

Reduction in electricity consumption:

79.716 kWh/year

Reduction in CO2<br/< emissions in a year

37,5 tonnes

Equal to: 15 TOE

(tonnes of oil equivalent)

Equivalent of the yearly use of:

Differentiated waste collection

In Valsir there is a strong awareness of differentiated waste collection at all levels, both in the offices and in the production departments, an activity that requires daily attention and consistency over time.

A comparison of figures for the period 2011-2013 revealed the following:

Raccolta differenziata

Differentiated waste collection


Equal to the yearly differentiated waste collection of

Valsir prints on FSC paper


In 2013 Valsir decided to undertake another environmental commitment: the company only prints on FSC paper.

What does FSC stand for?

Forests occupy a role of fundamental importance in the ecosystem but in some countries illegal deforestation is as high as 80% and it often involves the violation of human rights.

The FSC logo identifies wood based products that come from forests that are managed correctly and responsibly in accordance with strict environmental, social and economic standards.
The forest has been inspected and certified independently against the standards that were established and approved by FSC.

FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council and the FSC certification is the principal mechanism to guarantee the origin of wood or paper.

This is the reason the FSC logo makes the difference the world over:

It prohibits the conversion of natural forests or other habitats.

It prohibits the use of highly hazardous pesticides.

It prohibits the cultivation of genetically modified trees (GMOs).

It respects the right of indigenous people.

It controls each certified operation at least once a year.
