What we do

Health, Safety and Environment

image

The HSE (Health Safety Environment) Department is responsible of ensuring workers’ health and safety during work activities in their workplace and environmental sustainability of every process performed in the Company as well.

One of the most frequent and important issue concerning environment is the waste production: everyone should be aware of ethical and accurate waste management, because we always have to take into account environmental impacts of our activities.

Implementing a correct waste management and disposal process, for example, is essential to reduce waste production and costs.

This is why Italdesign has decided to implement its Environmental Management System (EMS) in compliance with the reference standard UNI EN ISO 14001:2015. The choice to develop the management systems of its activities means on the one hand to comply with the regulations in force but on the other, to improve company processes from sustainability point of view.

According to the definition of the UNI EN ISO 14001:2015 standard, an Environmental Management System is «the part of an organization’s system used to develop and implement its environmental policy and manage its environmental aspects».

Our EMS is fully compliant also with Environmental Compliance Management System (ECMS), the internal Volkswagen Management System that is developed with the aim of dealing both with environmental management at all stages of any company activity and the entire life cycle of products and services. The two models have several points in common and both of them have as their main goal the achievement of environmental sustainability of company processes.

An important aspect of ECMS model is the reporting of improper actions from an environmental perspective through the implementation of ad hoc monitoring systems (Speak up culture and Whistleblowing system).

History of our Logo

Italdesign new logo pays tribute to Italdesign’s roots, those planted by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Aldo Mantovani in 1968 to create a research and development centre studied, observed and highly respected by design and engineering professionals throughout the world.

The styled letter ‘G’, which is combined with the ‘I’ and ‘D’, featured on the pictograph ever since 1968, is a tribute to Mr. Giugiaro. The logotype re-introduces the company name ‘Italdesign’, a name that sums up the company’s values and missions: ‘Italianess’ — and the cultural, creative, methodological, innovative and quality heritage that has always characterised Italian products — combined with ‘design’, in the true British sense of the word, namely a perfect combination of style and planning, form and functionality.

The Italian heritage is enhanced by the addition of the Italian tricolour joining the two parts of the new logo.
