Attention to Environment

The Camozzi Group manages its business in the firm belief that the protection of the environment is a core value of the community, not antithetical to the goal of its own business evolution. Commitment in operating in compliance with applicable laws, applying the best technologies available and promoting the development of its activities aimed at enhancing natural resources, preserving the environment for future generations and promoting initiatives for its widespread protection.

In 2010 evidence of this commitment was demonstrated by the installation of photovoltaic systems of the latest generation on the roofs of all the Italian production plants of the Group.

One of the most significant installations is definitely the one on the roof of the factory in Polpenazze del Garda (BS), where solutions for industrial automation are being realized. An area with 18,400 thin film panels cover an area of 13,000 square meters, whose features are as follows:

•    power rating of 1237.5KWp 
•    minimum of 1,393,425 KWh to be generated per annum
•    118,400 thin film solar panels, controlled by 70 Siemens PVM Series inverters. 
•    119.8 TEP (Tonnes of Equivalent Petroleum) saved
•    898.8 barrels of oil saved
•    144,916 cubic meters of natural gas saved
•    Reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 905,726kg per year NOT released into the atmosphere. The scale of the saving is illustrated by the fact that 16,468 10 year old poplar trees would be required to absorb this amount of carbon dioxide through natural processes.
