SSE AIMS TO BE A PLASTIC FREE COMPANY
SSE AND THE ENVIRONMENT COMMITMENT:
AS OF 1st JANUARY, 2020, SSE AIM TO BE A PLASTIC FREE COMPANY
Since the very beginning, SSE Policy and related Procedures aims at achieving the following objectives:
- Commitment to environmental protection:
SSE believes that pollution can be prevented by adopting appropriate preventive measures in order to curb the significant environmental impacts of pollution.
- Continuous improvement of environmental standards:
SSE people and partners are fully engaged into the execution of the environmental improvement programs from time to time established by the Company, the contents of which are duly disseminated through posters, information and training sessions.
Based on the belief in the continuous enhancement of environmental standards, starting from 1st January 2020, SSE has launched the “Plastic Free” project. The initiative aims to encourage a culture of environmental awareness amongst SSE personnel, visitors and guests, by giving them the opportunity to replace plastic based goods such as plastic bottles with alternative goods, packed with reusable or eco-sustainable materials, in order to reduce plastic production, usage and recycling. This project aims also to contribute to the fight against plastic waste, limiting as much as possible the consumption of disposable plastic within SSE offices and production areas. By launching the “Plastic Free” project, SSE intends to: v Reconfirm once again the organization’s responsibility in environmental management policies, as a fundamental part of its mission;v Share with personnel and guests the importance of community’s efforts in changing individual bad habits, hence reaching a greener and more sustainable future for us all. In order to achieve this important milestone, which is so critical in the fight against environmental pollution, SSE has eliminated plastic bottles and glasses from its vending machines, by replacing them with ecological and biodegradable materials whilst guaranteeing at the same time the drinking water quality distributed in its premises. Finally, to support SSE people in preventing plastic bottles consumption, SSE provided to the whole staff with a stainless steel bottle suitable for beverages: a sustainable, ecological and recyclable container.
