Kemon has always been committed to safeguarding the environment and the area, carrying out Eco-Specific projects to minimize the impact of daily production.
We have been a Corporate Golden Donor of the FAI - Italian National Trust - since 2014. In 2015, we were among the founding members of the Fondazione Archeologia Arborea, an ancient orchard and a rich repository of biodiversity in the municipality of Città di Castello, with about 400 ancient and rare fruit tree species.
Eco Bio Open Lab
Not far from our plant, we converted about 21 hectares of land to organic farming of medicinal and local plants. This open-air green research lab allows us to test the best organic ingredients for producing sustainable cosmetics.
We only use 100% Multiutility clean energy produced by the power plants of the Gruppo Dolomiti Energia in the eastern Alps. In addition, we voluntarily adhere to the Kyoto protocol, offsetting our Co2 emissions with the financing of a hydroelectric power plant in China.
Protection of resources
We equipped our plant with a reverse osmosis water purification system, which allows us to reduce waste and avoid the use of unsustainable chemical products. In 2015, we began using energy efficient LED lighting in our production plant, and we have chosen hybrids as our company cars. For its offices, Kemon uses only non-bleached recycled paper: every 500 sheets of recycled paper used saves 83% of water, 72% of electricity and 53% of CO2 released into the atmosphere. For our marketing communication, we are committed to using FSC paper.
Over the years, we have reached increasingly higher certified standards of quality, production and environmental sustainability: our production plant is certified under ISO 14001, which regulates the Environmental Management System. We were a forerunner in the certification arena: our quality management system has been certified for almost 20 years.
