Clean Beaches and Seabeds
The concrete actions that Sammontana and Legambiente are implementing to protect our seas' flora and fauna.
Sammontana wholeheartedly supports the strategy launched by the Italian Ministry for the Environment in 2013, designed to tackle climate change and the challenges laid out by the UN in its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The first Italian company in the gelato sector to voluntarily sign an agreement with the Ministry for the Environment, at Sammontana we have calculated our carbon footprint and offset emissions related to the Greenhouse Effect. From here, we created the Gelato del Futuro (Gelato of the Future) initiative, a forum that allows us to reflect on the future of the planet together with the people who will be facing it.
A carbon footprint, expressed in terms of CO2 equivalent, is the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions produced as a result of all the various phases of operation in a product’s life cycle, correlated to their potential in terms of global warming. This covers all aspects of a product, from procurement and treatment of raw materials right through to processing, production, transport, its usage or consumption and ending with its disposal.
In July 2016, Sammontana signed a Voluntary Agreement with the Italian Ministry for the Environment in which we pledged to study, offset and reduce greenhouse gas emissions produced during the manufacturing process of a number of our products.
We committed to adopting an approach that increases our efforts to deliver sustainability and respect for the environment, in a transparent and certified fashion.
Creating food products of the highest quality, using recipes that never fail to deliver a mouthwatering taste experience, goes hand in hand with respect for the environment, taking care of our land and thinking about how our actions affect our surroundings.
The great taste of a sustainable approach!
At Sammontana, we invited a group of children to help us try and imagine what the future of gelato might look like. The result is definitely eye-opening.
