  Sustainability: the enviroment safeguard as stronghold
of the company’s philosohpy

Cascina San Cassiano slogan is “Trasparenti con gusto” (transparent with taste).

The philosophy which move this concept is strictly connected with the material that represent the best choice of those who care about the enviroment safeguard: the glass.

Transparent and strong, it doesn’t modify the content of the recipient, and allow you to admire it or better to “see through”, so the product presents itself in all its shine.

Many initiatives are promoting in this period the use of glass: The respect and the safeguard of the enviromental heritage follow also another path concerning the correct and responsible use of another important material: the paper.

Cascina San Cassiano cooperate with tipography that follow the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council.

  Photovoltaic: the renewable power which respect the enviroment

In order to help protect the environment Cascina San Cassiano has chosen a photovoltaic system to produce energy for its activity; the company is now completely independent from the energetic point of view.

The solar plant helps the planet by producing power from renewable source.

The advantages that come from the use of a plant which produces “clean energy” are many:
  • NO RISKS: the solar source of power is inexhaustible, the panels operation warranty lasts 25 years, the installations times are quite short, 1 day for a private plant, 1 months for a plant which produces 1 MW.

  • ENVIROMENT: the plant produces power where the energy will be used, without losses or dispersions, and further the image of the building will be better because of the eco-friendly feature. Also the value of the building will grow up.

  • ECONOMIC: the use of the power produced in the same place in which it’s generated optimizes the management costs
Meter: starting from November 2012 Cascina San Cassiano has produced with its photovoltaic system 230758,24 kWh, total of CO2 emissions avoided 161,53 tons (last update 01/03/2015).

  The “Sustainability taste”

Mission: one of the most important aim of Cascina San Cassiano is the diffusion of the “taste culture” of good italian food, and the development of typical italian products (IGP, DOP, DOC, PAT) and BIO.
