Environment, Energy and Work

In 2004 ILSA joins the worldwide “Responsible Care Programme” promoted in Italy by Federchimica. ILSA has adhered to this volunteer program (adhering to the guidelines certified by the third party Certiquality in 2014) that promotes Sustainable Development of the World Chemical Industry, in accordance with values and behaviours oriented towards Safety, Health and the Environment, within the more general scope of Corporate Social Responsibility. In 2014, at Federchimica, the commitment to reduce the environmental impact of fertilizers during their life cycle, allowed ILSA to receive the "Product Stewardship Award" awarded by Responsible Care to companies that were most outstanding in improvement programmes related to environmental aspects, as well as health and safety at work.

In 2011 the company adopted a safety management system according to UNI INAIL “Safe Work” guidelines.

ILSA, leading among the companies in the organic fertilizer sector, has decided to run a study of its environmental footprint organization, OEF - Organization Enviromental Footprint, and product, PEF - Product Environmental Footprint, throughout their life cycles up to the final consumer. The results obtained, expressed by the sixteen (16) impact categories (climate changes, band Ozone reduction, toxicity, soil use, etc.) are certainly encouraging, highlighting for many of those categories, impacts even more lower than 50%, on the same nutritional units applied to the soil, using as benchmark the studies of other synthetic products historically in the market.  (The results obtained are shown in the poster attached below). 

Encouraged by these results, ILSA is holding a strong knowledge instrument for its environmental performance, for its improvement points and the reduction of its impact in order to strengthen its "green reputation". With the PEF/OEF - Product Environmental Footprint/Organisation Environmental Footprint study, which started in 2014 and ended in 2015, ILSA, the leading European company in the sector, adhered to the European Community 2013/179/EU recommendation calculating the environmental impact generated throughout the lifecycle of its exclusive matrices AGROGEL® and GELAMIN®, creating a tool that will permit further improvement of environmental performance by working on different classes of impact.
