“Our environmental management system encompasses every aspect of our operations, from product development and manufacturing processes to supply chain management and waste management practices. It enables us to identify potential environmental risks, implement effective controls, and continuously enhance our performance in line with international best practices,” says Edoardo Maritano, CEO of Polygreen SRL “Our dedicated team worked diligently to meet the stringent requirements set forth by ISO, demonstrating our ability to meet legal obligations, fulfill environmental objectives, and drive sustainable development.”
The implementation of the comprehensive Environmental Management System (EMS) has been possible thanks to the firm commitment of every Polygreen employee.
