Environmental sustainability is an inspiring principle that invests every aspect of our company. It is not just an idea, but a real action plan, which is enriched every day with new ideas and solutions. A plan that aims to make the life of the company and the impact of its activity on the outside world more and more sustainable.
Actions4more is our program for the coming years, which will involve People, Products, Processes and Passion and it will deal with them with concrete actions, because we want to do more.
Actions4More represents this present and future commitment. Because only with true actions we can really make a difference.
THE CREATION OF VALUE COMES FROM PEOPLE
People are our greatest asset. Behind the quality of each Guardini product stands the passion and commitment of our people, with whom we have established a relationship based on loyalty, respect, fairness, individual freedom and dignity of work. Teamwork has permitted us to face the most challenging situation and it has helped us to react, learn and change, looking at the future with positivity and confidence.
We believe that having a common goal is crucial to achieve the most difficult targets. We believe in a free work environment, in which everyone can express their potential, promoting a culture of respect and the enhancement of everyone's uniqueness.
This is the path that we shall follow every day.
We are convinced that the Social Responsibility is essential for a company’s long-term success and that it is a key element of a value-oriented management. With the Certification SA 8000:2014, Guardini enhances its own belief in the Social Responsibility of a Company, a way of making business respecting people and the environment around us.
We want our products to respond to the environmental challenges of our time.
We put sustainability at the first place in our innovation process, in order to reduce the impact on the environment.
For this reason we have chosen to use steel with optimized thickness, to reduce waste of raw materials and to ensure perfect cooking results in reduced time, with consequent energy saving.
We have chosen moreover to use next generation non-stick coatings, which eliminate part of the polluting components from the production process through the use of technologies with lower environmental impact.
We are committed to find more sustainable solutions along the entire supply chain, cooperating with suppliers and partners who, like us, believe in sustainability as a necessary choice.
We are committed to reduce the volume of packaging and to prefer packaging from certified sustainable sources.
From recycling to reusing, our goal is to reduce every waste.
We want the Guardini brand to not only be synonymous with quality, know-how and made in Italy, but also with sustainability.
XBake is a bakeware collection with a reduced environmental impact, made of a support steel coming from production processes transformed thanks to sustainable innovative technologies and therefore equipped with an XCarb® green steel certificate, a trademark registered by ArcelorMittal. This represents the path taken towards the decarbonisation of the steel industry production process, contributing significantly to the reduction of the CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.
The XBake moulds are made with an innovative non-stick coating, which is PTFE and PFAS-free and reinforced with ceramic particles, studied and produced by ILAG.
XBake represents a concrete action undertaken by Guardini and its supply chain towards the reduction of the environmental impact.
B-Nat is a range of baking moulds made of Hi-Top steel with an innovative non-stick coating based on CARNAUBA WAX, made according to ILAG standards.
The carnauba wax replaces chemical additives in the composition of the non-stick coating, giving the surface of the moulds a natural slipperiness and non-stick.
The Carnauba wax is obtained from the leaves of the Copernicia prunifera, cultivated in Brazil, and it is the result of the natural process of wax production generated by the tree. The wax is produced thanks to the modification of the surface of the leaf to increase its impermeability during the rainy season.
Minimizing our production impact on the environment is our goal for the coming years.
Initiatives for the reduction of energy consumption in the production process and for the self-production of renewable energy are the next steps that we will take.
Low energy impact construction solutions and projects aimed at recovering waste are just part of the actions already fulfilled.
Our production process has a reduced environmental impact, but our daily actions cannot be separated from the commitment to much more ambitious goals.
In Guardini we have a great goal: improve our strategy to better our quality, because for a successful company the satisfaction of our clients is fundamental. For this reason, we concentrate on two main aspects:
The Quality certification UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 represents for Guardini the commitment in constantly improving our company performances, in terms of products, productive process and company organization.
IS OUR DRIVING FORCE
Passion has been the driving force in everything we do since 1947. Guardini has grown from a small-scale business to an international company thanks to the passion of a family now at its third generation. Passion has always enlightened our people throughout this long and demanding journey for all these years.
Actions4More program would not be possible without our passion.
Within our activity, we believe in the principle of protecting the environment, not only respecting the applicable laws on a national and regional scale, but also with the definition of an annual program of improvement aiming at:
A concrete example of our commitment is the construction of our new headquarters, designed based on the strict criteria of eco sustainability to pursue our goal of reducing our environmental footprint and obtain a positive balance between the value offered by this solution and the impact of our productive activity.
