Environmental protection starts with awareness
TTS is proud to be the first company in Italy to have obtained the certification of the CFP Systematic Approach defined in the UNI EN ISO 14067:2018 standard.
TTS is proud to be the first company in Italy to have obtained the certification of the CFP Systematic Approach defined in the UNI EN ISO 14067:2018 standard. The system developed by TTS allows the counting of greenhouse gas emissions for each phase of the lifecycle of the trolleys, from the supply of raw materials to the disposal of the product at the end of its life.
The CFP Systematic Approach offers a highly innovative and effective tool for systematically and quickly quantifying the environmental footprint of products, with important wide-ranging benefits.
First, identifying the most critical phases in terms of released emissions allows concrete improvement actions to be outlined and implemented. The Systematic Approach provides useful information for the product design phase, promoting sustainable design, and for the logistics phase, promoting a low environmental impact process. Starting from the collected data, TTS can make concrete choices in a sustainable perspective in order to minimise the emissions related to its production. For example, products are designed to be as compact as possible: stackable frames, foldable bag holders and compactable grips are just some of the solutions developed by TTS to optimise packaging and therefore transport, reducing environmental impact. In addition, the plastic used to produce the products comes exclusively from selected suppliers located at a maximum distance of 45 km from the company's headquarters: this proximity to manufacturers and printers not only guarantees the origin of the materials but also reduces CO2 emissions associated with transport.
Quantifying the environmental footprint also means reporting the product's performance level in terms of sustainability, giving the consumer an important criterion of choice in the purchase phase. By adopting the Product Carbon Footprint it is therefore possible to make the community aware of the environmental impact of products not only in relation to their use but throughout their entire life cycle: for this reason TTS provides the extrapolated data in a completely transparent manner, sharing the quantification of the emissions associated with each phase of the life cycle of its trolleys in order to encourage a conscious and responsible choice by the consumer.
Finally, the Product Carbon Footprint lays the foundations for the definition and implementation of emission offsetting programmes: in this regard, TTS supports several CO2 offsetting projects to absorb emissions related to the annual production of Magic, making them the first carbon neutral trolley line. A concrete gesture in support of important projects of responsible environmental management that not only allows the absorption of countless tons of CO2 but also helps to safeguard endangered ecosystems, protect biodiversity, and protect the work of local communities.
