Stevanato Group aims to ensure the health and safety of its employees, customers, end users, suppliers, partners, visitors and to protect the environment.
It operates its worldwide business under the principles of sustainability. Health, safety, and environmental management are vital parts of its business process.
Through its Pharmaceutical System and Engineering System, the Group commits to comply with applicable legal requirements and all other requirements relating to health, safety, and the environment.
Stevanato Group encourages its organization to act according to the highest standards in terms of health, safety, and environmental protection. Stating with senior management, each employee is accountable for implementing these values. The goal of every person is to anticipate risks and identify preventive actions to avoid these risks, thus actively contributing to reducing the possibility of injuries or occupational illnesses.
Thanks to energy saving programs and optimization of natural resource consumption, Stevanato Group pursues the continuous minimization of the environmental impact of its processes and products over their entire lifecycles. Specific focus is applied to waste and air emission reductions, implementing the best available techniques and reporting health, safety, and environment management results to stakeholders.
As part of its commitment to ethics, the Group actively involves its stakeholders in the continuous improvement of processes to bring responsible development to the communities where it operates.
The environmental performance has a direct and indirect impact on human health and on the environment.
For this reason, the Group is committed to exceeding customer expectations in terms of respect for the environment and sustainability.
The Ompi facility in Piombino Dese generates several types of waste, depending on the nature of manufacturing operations.
The Group has always been committed in improving process efficiency resulting in less waste generated. Today, 99% of the waste produced is recycled.
The performance in reducing gas consumption is a result of the increased efficiency of Stevanato Group’s plants and of the transition from a predominantly bulk production to a production in EZ-fill®.
This transition, however, entails an increase in energy consumption, which is the reason why Stevanato Group's commitment has now focused on energy efficiency.
This has been possible through the installation of photovoltaic panels and through a heat recovery system from the cooling water of compressors.
The next step to further increase energy efficiency will be the creation of a trigeneration plant, which is currently being developed.
Pharmaceutical containers are part of the pharmaceutical product itself, and therefore must represent maximum quality for the patient.
The quality of the product goes hand-in-hand with patient safety, which is the primary objective for everyone involved in the process.
Since Stevanato Group creates systems and processes that guarantee the integrity of parenteral medicines, it has defined a list of principles that guide the everyday activity of all its sub-brands.
These principles are the basis of GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), representing the quality management system orientation of the whole Group.
The aim is to always guarantee:
Our Code of Conduct defines the Stevanato Group requirements for suppliers (including service providers) concerning their responsibility towards both humans and the environment.
We expect our suppliers not only to fulfill these requirements, but to promote and impose compliance with the Code of Conduct on their own suppliers in turn.
