83 RUFFINO | Sustainability Report FY 2021 The purpose of the Environmental Pillar is to identify the waste in the production process and its impact on the environment, while planning improvement and efficiency actions. It consists of six steps: • Defining the current situation, the purpose and priorities; • Analyzing waste and environmental ineffi- ciencies, and studying possible solutions; • Restoring the basic conditions; • Analyzing and restoring anomalies respect to the standard; • Closing the gap to Zero Environmental Loss; • Ensuring continuous improvement of the environmental management system. Ruffino S.r.l is currently working on the first two steps, which will be finished by FY22. To this end, certain documents – environmental management procedure; instructions on waste and discharge management – have been drawn up and shared with workers. The environmental pillar can be implemented due to the collaboration between the departmen- ts: bottling, cellar, maintenance, laboratory and logistics. The environmental management is analyzed at monthly Operations meetings and includes maintaining legislative compliance and resolving issues received from external audits or directly from colleagues.
