Quality

OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE VALUABLE SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE PEOPLE'S EVERYDAY LIFE.
WE DO IT BY DESIGNING, PRODUCING AND DISTRIBUTING PRODUCTS OF SUPERIOR QUALITY IN EVERY SECTOR IN WHICH WE OPERATE.

This is why we invest 4% of our turnover in research and development of innovative products, adopting the most rigorous processes to ensure the highest quality throughout the entire chain, from supplier certification to inspection of raw materials, manufacturing process, finished product and packaging, up to sample testing at the point of sale. Thus, we are proud to sign every product we make with our brands: Pampers, Lines, Tampax and Ace.

 Management System Standards of Reference:

  • ISO 14001 Environmental Management System
  • ISO 9001 Quality Management System
  • EMAS, a voluntary system to assess environmental efficiency
  • ISO 50001 Energy Management System

Personal Safety

Our vision is to create the best possible workplace. For this, people's safety is always our top priority, because it is important for us to manufacture the same way we work.

We organize safety training courses for more than 20,000 hours per year. We implemented operating procedures coded in all fields; we organize continuous audits and constant training activities for people in our team and all contractors from external companies that work with us. The result that makes us most proud is to ensure excellence in safety levels at the workplace. We implement the OHSAS 18001 standard, which is the most advanced in the field of health and safety of workers.

Sustainability

We have oriented our entire manufacturing chain towards sustainability.

Product design

Our products are designed to have less environmental impact while offering improved performance:

  • 45% less diaper weight in the last 20 years;
  • 68% less packaging
  • 19% less product weight in incontinence diapers.

The production process

Continuous innovation guides the production process:

  • 80% of the energy needs of the plant in Pescara (electricity + natural gas) is covered by energy originating from renewable sources. The plant in Pescara is served by a high efficiency cogeneration plant powered by renewable vegetable sources. The plant in Campochiaro (CB) is served by a cogeneration plant powered by natural gas.
  • - 22% of waste per unit of product (data refers to three years 2010-2012);
  • 100% of industrial waste sent for recycling: 0 grams in landfill thanks to a detailed work of partnership with authorized waste management companies.

Transport optimization

  • 7,022 trucks (equivalent to a 90 km long row) thanks to more efficient methods of loading the vehicles and favoring transport by ship for some destinations;
  • 4 Electric vehicles for urban transport of employees among the offices.

Post-use

To increase the sustainability of our absorbent products we designed and implemented a technological process capable of recycling the used absorbent products of all brands. By using vapor under pressure, the products, collected separately, are opened, sterilized and their parts in plastic and cellulose are separated; thus, generating new secondary raw materials. For industrial volumes the process is at the experimentation stage. In Italy there are already seven million citizens served by the specific separate collection of personal hygiene absorbent products.
