Toscotec announced that it has successfully renewed its ISO 14001 certification and Eco-Management and Audit Scheme registration for environmental protection. It is also on track to obtain the ISO 45001 certification validating a significant improvement in occupational safety.

In a statement released by the company, Toscotec explained that it has been complying with these stringent environmental standards for 16 years

The company noted that it is proud to advance the decarbonization of the paper industry by designing and manufacturing energy-efficient technology and services that significantly reduce the energy demand of the paper-making process and preserve natural resources such as water and fibres.


The Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), devised by the European Commission, constitutes a premium benchmark for environmental management. It sets forth demanding guidelines that voluntarily registered organizations comply with to improve their green performance, credibility, and transparency. Toscotec’s environmental management system is also certified to ISO 14001 since 2005.

Toscotec is strictly implementing an occupational safety management system, which includes key policies and objectives driving the improvement of health and safety at work in compliance with the ISO 45001 international standard.

“Toscotec has confirmed an ever-growing commitment to corporate sustainability with notable improvements in energy efficiency and waste management capacity. To name a few examples, since 2011 at our headquarters facility, we have been abandoning halogen and fluorescent lamps for LED lights, a move that has reduced our electrical consumption from illumination by 40 percent,” said Andrea Marzaro, Toscotec’s operations director.

“For heating, we replaced fuel oil boilers with natural gas boilers equipped with state-of-the-art burners that have both cleared the issue of fuel oil disposal and increased our energy efficiency. In the space of green energy, we have made significant progress in energy self-generation at our main production site and have progressively replaced diesel-fuelled forklifts with new electric ones.”
