WE CREATE VALUE IN ALL ITS FORMS


THE VOLUNTARY MARKET FOR CARBON CREDITS

Through a cooperation with an office specialized in the Carbon Footprint, calculation,  our technical department calculated the impact of our products using a methodology that complies with the requirements of ISO 14067 standards relating to the climate footprint of products.

This allows us to compensate with certainty the real impact of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of our products by the voluntary purchase of carbon credits on the market.

The Voluntary Carbon Credits Market was created in parallel with the mandatory to allow virtuous companies that are not obliged by law to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions, provided for by the Kyoto Protocol in 2005.

Companies like Alma can thus co-finance forestry projects, forest protection,  energy production from renewable sources and energetic efficiency.


CONDITIONS FOR THE GENERATION OF CO2 CREDITS

To generate CO2 credits, offset projects must be carried out, verified, and certified  by appropriate qualified agencies and bring environmental, economic and social improvement in the area where they are developed.

These agencies, after verifying the quality and seriousness of the project, issue the credits which will then be traded on specific international platforms, which offer a system that increases transparency, efficiency, and scalability within the global credit market.

Once issued, the credits are recorded in appropriate registers, which constitute an essential tool for the overall management of emission reduction credits and offer the assurance of their traceability and certification.


MAIN QUALITY STANDARDS FOR CERTIFICATION OF CO2 COMPENSATION AND REDUCTION

The selected project complies with the verification standards internationally recognized by the main certifiers of the voluntary carbon credit market, which are:


ISO 20121 CERTIFIED

Joining this virtuous project is a valid and concrete support for our customers to achieve compliance with the ISO 20121 standard and therefore facilitates the certification of the entire event, which will therefore be,  regarding flooring,  an  event with zero environmental impact in terms of emissions
