Environmental Commitment

We value our planet

RODI is environmentally certified by the ISO 14001: 2015 standard and has a management plan in which it develops various initiatives to improve its environmental performance and reduce the impact of its activity. 

Currently, the main areas of control are energy consumption, water consumption, effluent discharge, and waste production.

CO2 emissions and energy consumption

Energy efficiency is one of the main monitorization priorities for RODI, which results in a constant search for alternatives to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption in our facilities.

To minimize this specific impact, and in line with our sustainable management principles and practices, RODI is committed to:

  • Preference for the use of renewable energies, with the use of photovoltaic panels as an example. In 2024, new photovoltaic panels will be installed, avoiding the emission of 1135.001 kg of CO2/year;
  • Identification and monitoring of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with production activities;
  • Approval and practice of Energy Rationalization Plans (ERPs);
  • Continuous update of manufacturing facilities and production equipment.
  • - 1135.001 kg CO2 Emissions

    RODI Home = 988,66 ton. / RODI Cycling = 852.85 ton. (scope 1 & 2)

Water consumption and effluent discharge

Water consumption is an important factor in the production processes inherent to the business units, which due to the environmental impact it represents, is monitored and controlled through the installation of meters at points of extraction and consumption.
  • - 30%

    Specific water consumption (2022)

  • - 1l/un

    Produced by RODI Cycling (since 2019)

The goal is to reduce the specific use of water in our industrial units and manage it sustainably:

  • Optimization of our waste-water treatment facility;
  • Update of production equipment that consumes water during manufacturing processes;
  • Use of surface treatment lines that have water reuse systems between vats, which also leads to an improvement in energy consumption.

Waste production

In terms of waste management, RODI's main objectives are to increase the recovery rate and the use of recycled materials and reduce the production of hazardous waste. 

That is in line with our commitments to sustainable development and sustainable procurement:

  • Metal scrap is the type of waste with the highest expression in the total amount of waste produced at RODI. Strategies are expected to be implemented to reduce the quantities produced;
  • Promoting the recovery of waste;
  • Reduction of waste generation and promotion of the consumption of recycled or renewable materials, thus reducing the environmental impact of our products.
  • - 8%

    Hazardous waste (since 2019)

  • 95%

    Waste recovery rate (2022)

  • "Despite the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, these were years where new opportunities have also arisen to review our strategy for sustained growth. That is how we will continue, with our eyes set on the future."
