For Leonardo the health and safety and the environment of its workers is a priority, as is that of its clients for whom the intervention work is being carried out.
For this purpose, the company has established a protocol called Restauro Verde®, which has been applied to its sites and activities since 2009. Thanks to the Restauro Verde® system, specific procedures are activated when choosing natural and handmade materials, in their energy-saving policies, in the management and disposal of waste, and in the waste reduction in all business operations.
Regarding cleaning processes, for example, bio-technical products, which are non-damaging to the workers or the environment, are used as substitutes for chemical substances, while nano-technological products are adopted which, besides protecting the surfaces from atmospheric agents, absorb the pollution and return purified substances to the air.
In confirmation of the above, Leonardo has become a member of the Green Building Council Italia, the international non-profit organisation which works towards sustainable building, and has started applying some of the elements of the LEED system (The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) to its restoration work..
