The company’s green vision begins with the selection of the raw materials, which are sourced from responsibly managed forests, and continues with the use of virtuous production processes and biomass and solar power systems for generating heat and electricity in-house. One of the company’s cornerstones is the pursuit of innovation, which translates into respect for the ecosystem on the one hand, and attention to the home living environment on the other, in accordance with the principles of BIOdesign.

MADE IN FERREROLEGNO
FerreroLegno works with partners
with FSC and PEFC certification
• sustainably managed forests;
• controlled sources;
• recycled materials.
FerreroLegno has installed a 4900 m2 solar power system, made up of 2,978 monocrystalline panels, on the roof of its production facility, which has an installed power capacity of 758 kWp, and meets most of the company’s in-house energy needs.
This system prevents 440,000 kg of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere each year.
The heating system is powered by biomass, and uses plant materials that guarantee high yields and reduced carbon dioxide dispersion into the environment, thus counteracting the excessive use of non-renewable energy resources. The company also carries out meticulous sorted waste collection activities, which ensure the recovery of 80% of the total waste produced.
The company considers protecting the environment and safeguarding the health and safety of its customers and craftsmen to be an absolute priority. The company is Italy’s first door manufacturer to have opted exclusively for the use of innovative water-based organic paints, which have set new high quality standards and guarantee extremely low levels of formaldehyde emissions.
The creation of two new organic paint colour palettes (Iride and ULTRAopaco), which are consistent with the latest furniture trends, bears witness to FerreroLegno’s ability and commitment to inspiring contemporary interior design choices.

Better Doors, Better Life, Better World.
The ZeroCO2 project
One concrete example of this green attitude is FerreroLegno’s recent decision to plant 50 trees, including basswood and oak trees, in the nearby town of Chivasso, the care of which has been entrusted to a farm associated with the establishment of Italy's very first farm daycare facility. A place that features innovative educational pathways focused on returning to nature, and maintaining contact with the earth, trees, animals and the seasons.
Trees are considered to be the most effective and economical technology for offsetting greenhouse gas emissions. Planting trees is an excellent way to support the global effort to combat climate change.
The trees donated by FerreroLegno have had a considerable impact on the local community, which uses them for educational purposes with the children and people involved with the farm daycare programme.
Thanks to Chloe, the tracking and monitoring system
of Zero CO2, you can see photos of trees, geolocate them and monitor their growth.
