It is very important to attest to the consumption parameters of one’s machinery, such as a green Label for a company. This is because issues of environmental sustainability and energy compliance have now become a must.
Hence, in cooperation with Assomac(www.assomac.it) and Rina(www.rina.org/it), the Green Label was born. It is certification of emission and consumption values by the ALFA 684CF2HP machinery that will soon be extended to all footwear machinery produced by Brustia-Alfameccanica s.r.l.
What is the Green Label?
The green Label is a document intended to identify and make easily understandable the energy and environmental performance of footwear machinery. In particular, it refers to a process chosen by the manufacturer as a comparison parameter.
Italian manufacturers, in the absence of internationally recognized standards for classifying the energy and/or environmental performance of footwear machinery, are taking the lead together with Assomac in a tool designed to show some performance data of the machinery they produce. Indeed, the awareness of the technological excellence achieved, including in the field of sustainability, is a strength of the Italian mechano-footwear sector, which is at the forefront with technological solutions of low environmental impact and high sustainability.
One parameter chosen to put a value on the eco-efficiency of the machinery being labeled is the CFP. It indicates the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions produced during the operation of the machinery.
