BBM Service’s commitment to sustainability in its most global sense: not only environmental, but also social and community-related
BBM Service considers the focus on sustainability to be one of the primary objectives for its present and future agenda. Environmental protection is an increasingly important prerogative for the packaging sector: we want to take up this challenge, in pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the UN for 2030. A commitment that not only translates into concern for the ecosystem, but also into a concrete responsibility to ensure the well-being of our employees in the workplace.
For over 15 years, BBM Service has made it its mission to give a second life to disused machinery that is no longer in use. Our second-hand business provides the environmental benefits of reducing the disposal of heavy industrial equipment. Initiatives such as adopting a #BBM branded blue cup or water dispensers to reduce plastic usage is one of many small everyday gestures that contribute to a greener vision of our workplaces. Thanks to the increasing role of digital technology, our offices have become paperless – a philosophy to cut down on paper use.
BBM has installed a photovoltaic system at the San Pellegrino site, which allows 90% of the energy produced to be consumed; the installation is also planned at the production site in Lenna, where LED light fittings and a high-efficiency floor heating system have been installed. In our vehicle fleet, we select the latest generation of low emission vehicles. At the construction site, we ensure proper sorting, separating materials with meticulous precision, according to the CER code. We have a suction and filtering system for fumes and dust. The rigour of our choices awareded us a silver medal from the EcoVadis corporate sustainability assessment platform.
We have always favoured local companies among our suppliers in order to promote a zero-kilometre production chain. We like to support the community by supporting competitive and amateur sports organisations, as well as small associations and local entities, and larger entities, such as the Comunità Montana Valle Brembana, in the context of the Covid-19 health emergency. Our ten-year passion for sport has led us to want to actively support the Telethon foundation to promote scientific research
An opportunity for those who choose to work with us
BBM wants and needs to be a place of well-being and fulfilment for its employees. We have always supported youth work through active school-to-work programmes in cooperation with schools. We want the young people of our area to have the opportunity to experience a rich path of growth, expanding their knowledge and contributing to the active development of our valley. BBM supports the numerous employees involved in university training, both three-year and master’s degrees.
We are committed to actively combating gender stereotypes: 60% of our employees in clerical or managerial positions are women; of these, 80% are under the age of 35. We give our employees the opportunity to adopt flexible working hours, with the aim of supporting a proper work-life balance for our staff.
A corporate Code of Ethics has been drawn up with the aim of defining the set of values and ethical principles that BBM Service recognises, promotes and shares. BBM’s commitments and responsibilities are aimed at creating satisfaction for its customers and growth for its employees and collaborators.
