PHILOSOPHY

Sustainable lightness:

Levico Waters knows that nothing is more important than respect for the environment in which we live, so every day we invest in sustainability.

PHILOSOPHY

Definitions such as Green or Ecofriendly are now the talk of the town, but at Levico we take this definition seriously. We want to be more.

Respect for the environment, Transparency and Quality are the values that for us at Levico Waters translate into Sustainable Lightness. Every day we strive to collect and distribute our light and pure water, minimising the environmental impact of the production processes.

We want to create value, not just economic, to give back to our territory, guaranteeing rewarding corporate relationships to those who work with us. In fact, we believe that both the environment and people need not only safeguarding but also to be able to look to the future with optimism and confidence. This leads us to look for new forms of quality, that can only be found in sustainability.

Returnable glass makes it possible to use less resources and less energy, producing even less waste.

RETURNABLE GLASS

Returnable glass: a good habit that is kind to the planet

Levico has always bottled its light mineral water exclusively in glass bottles , – a high quality choice which is also environmentally friendly. In particular, we have embraced the returnable glass philosophy, a practice which is already widespread in many countries. 100% infinitely recyclable, these bottles can also be reused up to 30 times before being recycled due to use. Choosing glass wastes less resources and less energy, producing even less waste.

In fact, every year over 30 million tons of solid urban waste are produced in Italy. Over half is represented by packaging and a good part of this is from plastic bottles. The reasons are easily understood: plastic is lighter, cheaper and easier to throw away. But the disadvantages cannot be ignored: if released into the environment – the oceans in particular – it causes serious damage to the ecosystems because it can take up to 500 years before decomposing completely.

Using returnable glass bottles for the distribution of Levico water aims to guarantee a better future for our planet, in line with our values.

BLUE VALLEY

How we’ve become the first real zero-impact bottled water company.

Visiting an enchanted place in the Venetian Lagoon was a key factor in our path towards sustainability.

ZERO IMPACT

Levico Waters is a zero impact company, also thanks to Blue Valley

In 2014 we decided to find a partner to be able to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from production with a long-term project.

The analysis conducted showed that in 2014 the impact of production had been reduced by 21% for the 0.5l bottles, while over the two-year period 2012-2014 the total GHG (i.e. the greenhouse gas emissions) emitted from Levico had decreased by 11.74%, from 1,841,178 kgCO2 in 2012 to 1,624,948 kgCO2 in 2014.

To eliminate this residual quantity of greenhouse gas emissions related to the overall production we purchased “carbon credits” issued by BLUE VALLEY, a BNeutral certified company engaged in the management of a carbon capture and storage system in the province of Venice.

In the 5 years scheduled for zeroing, a program subject to annual revisions, BLUE VALLEY will operate in the Venetian lagoon carrying out activities which reduce greenhouse gases and absorb CO2, such as the replanting of the lagoon, the management of lagoon water circulation and fish farming via extensive aquaculture.
