RadiciGroup's yarn plant bags ISO 14001 certificate

Radici Fil SpA – one of the first RadiciGroup companies and a leader in the manufacture of PA6 and PA6.6 BCF yarn for the contract, residential, automotive and upholstery sectors – has been awarded UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 certification for its environmental management systems.
 
“ISO 14001 environmental certification, together with BS OHSAS 18001 certification, is an important step for us,” said Stefano Loro, managing director of Radici Fil. “It represents the evolution and optimization of a management system that had been in place for quite some time at our company. 
 
In order to ensure maximum reliability for our customers and stakeholders, we have always focused on setting up management systems with the capability of monitoring and controlling the environmental impact of our business activities and products, all the while concentrating on occupational safety aspects. Our next step is going to be certification to ISO 50001, an energy management system standard that we intend to adopt to improve and optimize our performance in terms of energy efficiency.”
 
“Although the implementation of an eco-management model is first and foremost a social duty,” Mr. Loro concluded, “it is much more than that. I am convinced that it is an important factor that differentiates us in our target market, a factor that really increases the value added of our company and our products.”
 
Path to certification
Riccardo Guerini, quality manager of Radici Fil, described the path to certification: ”The environmental impact analysis and assessment needed for certification took about two years. We began in 2012 with document and environmental analysis and the development of our action, implementation and monitoring plans. 
 
We then started to implement corrective action and conduct re-examinations to assess the results with the goal of improving management processes. And, in December 2013, we obtained the formal certification.”
 
”Our corporate management system, which has already been certified to ISO 9001 and BS OHSAS 18001,” Mr Guerini continued, “is aimed at ensuring that the products and services we supply are of the highest quality. During these years, we have constantly taken action targeted at the continuous improvement of our quality, safety and environmental management systems. 
 
The most significant aspects of our environmental strategy that we have been working on include the optimization of natural resources and energy usage, and the careful and rigorous measurement of the environmental impact performance indicators for our products using the LCA method, so as to be able to develop Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for our products.”
 
RADICI FIL FOR SUSTAINABILITY: 
WATER SAVINGS
In the three-year period 2010 – 2012, the company was able to reduce the quantity of water per ton of product by about 21%, by improving its production processes and water recycling systems. In 2012, RadiciGroup as a whole achieved a water recycling and reuse rate of 91% at its companies.
