At Borri, our commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency drives our constant pursuit of innovation, cutting-edge design, and advanced technology. Our mission is to make a positive impact on the environment by ensuring the sustainability of our Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) throughout their entire lifecycle.
Borri is dedicated to putting its environmental commitment into action throughout the organization. This includes actively promoting a low carbon footprint culture among our team members and customers, as well as developing sustainable products. Our approach involves all internal processes, from daily activities to the design of new products, with the goal of minimizing pollution and waste while maximizing product performance with minimal carbon footprint.
Responsible design is at the heart of sustainable solutions: from efficiency to durability, from easy maintenance to a responsible component selection. Our Research and Development (R&D) and Engineering teams daily work to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of our products. To demonstrate our commitment, we have chosen to certify our major critical power products through a 3rd-party declaration with the PEP Association. For instance, our Ingenio Max series (ranging from 200 to 600 kW) has undergone an independent verification process, assessing the environmental impact at every stage of the product's lifecycle. Customers can easily access this information online.
The PEP, or Product Environmental Profile, is a manufacturer's declaration of a product's sustainability, according to a specific protocol outlined by the European Company Eco Passport. This protocol includes a comprehensive life cycle assessment, evaluating, by means of a quantitative analysis, greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impact indicators, according to a “cradle-to-grave” approach.
The definition that can be found in the PEP document, under the “Environmental impacts” section is the following: “the evaluation of environmental impacts examines the stages of the Reference Product life cycle: manufacturing, distribution, installation, use and end of life. It is representative from products marketed and used in Europe in an electrical installation in compliance with associated product standards”.
Design for Sustainability criteria play a pivotal role in the PEP score, considering factors such as material selection, minimized bill of quantities, high operational efficiency, repairability and reusability, as well as packaging design and short routes shipping strategies, to name a few.
Borri has been ISO 14001 certified since 2011. The international standard “specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organization can use to enhance its environmental performance”.
Additionally, our entire UPS range complies with the IEC/EN 62040-4 Product Standard, which “specifies the process and requirements to declare the environmental aspects concerning uninterruptible power systems (UPS), with the goal of promoting reduction of any adverse environmental impact during a complete UPS life cycle”.
While product sustainability is crucial, Borri recognizes that environmental responsibility extends to our industrial processes and facilities. In line with our Group's E-less policy, we are dedicated to achieving an annual 4% reduction in energy consumption. Our efforts have included a thorough review and replacement of HVAC equipment, as well as the implementation of automatic lighting systems. Thanks to the commitment of our employees, we achieved a remarkable 7% energy savings in 2022.
Some of our facilities feature a photovoltaic power plant, and we have ambitious plans to expand our solar power capacity and implement special energy storage systems for efficient utilization.
In our critical power testing area, where energy consumption can be significant, we have been using regenerative active loads since 2010. These loads enable us to save approximately 95% of the energy typically consumed during testing of our Critical Power UPSs, which would otherwise be lost if using resistor-based loads.
Borri actively participates in our Group's Corporate Social Responsibility Program, taking concrete steps to address the environmental challenges of our time. We remain committed to intensifying our efforts in support of a more responsible and sustainable future.
