The continuous desire for improvement gave the Oerlikon Riri Group the impetus to set more ambitious objectives, with the achievement of important goals: in this context, also through the three-year collaboration with Marsh Advisory company, a global leader in strategic consulting and risk management and in ESG themes (Environmental, Social, Governance), Oerlikon Riri has implemented its own integrated Quality, Environment, Health and Safety Management System. This process, which began in January 2022, has allowed us to enlarge the Integrated System, incorporating for Mendrisio, Tirano and Palazzolo sull’Oglio plants, ISO 9001 : 2015, 14001 : 2015, 45001 : 2018 certifications, which had already been obtained at the Padua site.
The audit, conducted by the Third Party Certification Body TÜV Rheinland, took place between October and November and was successfully completed at all sites, highlighting as strengths of the Group, Riri’s product LCA process (life cycle analysis), and the effective use of the management software for HSE issues, relating to health, safety and the environment.
Marco Bruno, Head of ESG Compliance & Health and Safety Oerlikon Luxury, comments: “My group and I have been able to achieve this fantastic goal as the result of a multidisciplinary team effort, started in 2015, when the strategy of what is now Oerlikon Riri’s sustainability journey began. This certification is fully part of this continuous growth in awareness of our responsibility towards the environment, people and the community. With this additional and important aspect, we contribute to the broader ESG framework of the entire (newly formed) Oerlikon Luxury division“.
Federico Bollati, Quality System Manager of Oerlikon Luxury, continues as follow: “I am very proud of the achieved result, which is the outcome of the teamwork carried out in recent months, with enthusiasm and perseverance, by all the company Functions. This is an important milestone towards continuous improvement in Quality, Health, Safety and Environment, demonstrating Oerlikon Riri’s ever-growing commitment to these issues. The important path undertaken will lead to significant improvements in our quality, environmental and health and safety performance.”
