On Friday 22 April 2016 Bonfiglioli locations worldwide participated in Earth Day, a worldwide movement to build a healthy, sustainable environment and to protect the earth. The Earth Day activities coincide with a year-long set of activities related to the 60th anniversary of Bonfiglioli in which the Company is focusing on its four values of Challenge, Respect, Accountability and Winning Together. For Bonfiglioli, Respect is for people, resources and also the environment; Earth Day is just one activity for the Company to demonstrate how everyone can make an extra effort to be more respectful toward our planet. Here are some of the activities carried out by our employees worldwide:
- Bonfiglioli Riduttori S.p.A. (Italy) & Tecnotrans Bonfiglioli S.A. (Spain) – Since the meat industry generates nearly one-fifth of the man-made greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, employees made a difference by limiting their meat consumption. Company cafeterias offered little or no meat options on Earth Day and instead offered more fresh vegetables and fruits.
- Bonfiglioli Renewable Power Conversion India Ltd. (Bangalore) & Bonfiglioli Transmission Pvt. Ltd. (Mannur) – Bonfiglioli employees planted trees that help communities. For every dollar spent on tree planting, 2.5 dollars are generated in local income and benefits.
- Bonfiglioli Transmission Pvt. Ltd. (Chennai) – Changing to a knowledge sharing culture is the first step for being more respectful toward our planet. Our employees arranged an Eco-quiz and shared it with all their colleagues to make them aware of how they can be more eco-friendly during their daily work activities.
- Bonfiglioli USA Inc. (USA) – More than a billion pounds of food are thrown away every year. Our employees have helped to make a difference by turning their food waste into soil by creating a compositing area.
