OMB AND THE ENVIRONMENT
We are certified according to the ISO 14001 standard and we do follow a strict company policy that commits us to a concrete effort to reduce the impact on the environment and spread out a culture of eco-sustainability.
In 2008 a photovoltaic system was installed with a nominal power of approx. 550 kwp, capable of producing an average of 600 thousand kWh per year. In 2022 it was expanded by another 400kWp, with an increase in energy production of 1,080,000 kWh.
In this way we can avoid the emission of about 504 t of CO2. The office building is A+ certified. It is completely made of wood and equipped with sensitive grids, which follow the position of the sun and tilt automatically, so as to have the best natural lighting inside the offices and in the other working spaces
HEALTH & SAFETY
OMB is certified according to the ISO 45001 standard, an additional evidence of a production structure which does respect the safety and health of workers.
In addition to the compliance with the current rules, the Company objective is to implement policies, procedures and controls in line with internationally recognised best practices to create the best possible working conditions
We are committed to reducing the negative environmental impact related to the movements of our employees and to spreading the culture of sustainable mobility.
We have therefore set up, in collaboration with Jo-job, a web platform for car sharing among colleagues or for the choice of alternative means of transport. A cash reward is given for each journey home - work in car pooling, bicycle, scooter or public transport.
The same platform is useful for us to monitor the cumulative environmental impact of the employees and the savings obtained with this new strategy.
To support the initiative, we have equipped ourselves with some e-bikes, free for the employees to move from house to work and vice versa.
We do also have charging stations for electrical vehicles owned by employees.
Since the activation of the platform in September 2021, we estimate that we have managed to avoid the emission of more than 4 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
SAVE THE FARM
OMB has joined the project Save the Farm, promoted by Biorfarm, providing for the 50 trees of its orchard. It is a project dedicated to businesses and aimed at supporting small Italian farmers, protecting the biodiversity and ensuring them a higher price than that of the market.
Farmers are also ensured a revenue stability regardless of any difficulties caused by the climate emergency. The fruit collected in the farm orchard, called Gea, in homage to our planet, is delivered every week in OMB, with the additional goal of promoting a healthy break.
The virtual platform also shows an estimate of the CO2 emissions absorbed by planted trees, which amount to 2,750 kgco2/year
