Certifications

The product and process certifications in line with international standards and guidelines – EMAS, ISO 14001, ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001, FSC®, and EKOenergy – through which Favini is demonstrating its commitment to the high quality, safety and environmental compliance of its products and activities.

EMAS and ISO 14001 management systems

Both Favini’s paper factories are ISO 14001 certified, a voluntary standard developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) which guarantees that a company is aiming to reduce the environmental impact of its activities and constantly pursue improvements through the achievement of specific goals, such as the implementation of advanced technological systems. EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) is another voluntary European environmental certification system for companies that commit to assessing and improving the environmental performance of their production systems and communicating this to their stakeholders. Seeing as the Rossano Venero and Crusinallo factories are both EMAS and ISO 14001 certified, Favini commits to setting environmental impact improvement goals on a regular basis and pursuing them through a plan integrated with other quality and safety standards.

ISO 9001

The ISO 9001 certification is a voluntary standard aimed at improving the quality of production systems and efficiency in the realisation of final products, resulting in increased customer satisfaction. Favini, through ISO 9001 certifications, commits to constantly improving the efficiency of its production processes and guaranteeing high quality products as well as added value for its stakeholders.

OHSAS 18001

Occupational health and safety are guaranteed in both factories through the OHSAS 18001 standard, which stands for Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series. The OHSAS standards are designed to be integrated with the ISO 14001 environmental management system. Workers’ safety and respect for the environment are two aspects Favini is developing in conjunction, while aiming to achieve shared goals on all corporate levels. In an integrated system, workers’ safety and health are aligned with production and environmental performance goals.

FSC®

FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) is a non-profit organisation that has developed a certification for the forest industry which is now recognised internationally. FSC® certification guarantees that raw materials, like cellulose in the case of a paper factory, come from sustainably managed forests. The products of the Crusinallo and Rossano Veneto factories, both Graphic Specialities and Converting Products, are FSC® certified (certificate numbers: FSC-C001810 and FSC-C016724).

EKOenergy

Through this certification, promoted by an international network of environmental organisations, Favini guarantees the quality of the production of renewable energy, specifically hydroelectric, used in the manufacturing of certain product lines (Crush e Remake). EKOenergy was launched as a result of an international consultation process and aims to support the production of renewable energy, as well as investments in renewable energy projects across the world. By using self-produced 100% renewable energy, Favini manufactures the Crush and Remake lines in a completely sustainable way.
