Gualerzi’s sustainability path: towards a tasty future, together.

Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, Gualerzi decided has complied with the EU’s Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), a voluntary certification for organizations seeking to evaluate and improve their environmental performance.

The scheme aims to achieve a sustainable economic development, with a focus on companies’ roles and responsibilities.

Within this framework, Gualerzi has made significant investments in energy efficiency, the use of renewable sources, emissions reduction and sustainable packaging.

The company has obtained multiple environmental certifications to assess and measure the results of these newly implemented solutions.

Italian Deli Meats Promotion Institute (IVSI)

Gualerzi adheres to the Manifesto of the Italian deli meats Promotion Institute (IVSI),
which promotes values including a deep bond with local communities, a future-oriented vision and also product quality and sustainability.

Compliance is assured by a third-party auditor.

ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING

RECYCLABLE TRAYS

30% of our sliced products are packaged in recyclable paper trays (see picture on the right).

 

In 2020, we began adding recycled plastics (RPET)
to our trays. We have constantly increased the RPET content up to reaching the current proportion of 50% RPET per tray.

 

A share of the boxes we transport our products in is made of
100% recycled fiber.

 

The company’s goal is to further increase this amount.

When a product has the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) certification, it was surely made using paper or wood issued from responsibly managed forests. FSC® ensures the whole supply chain is managed ethically and sustainably: ecosystems are protected, not destroyed. Thanks to FSC®, forests never stop growing!
