Polieco-M.P.B. Group believes that the growth of a company is due not only to the choices made by its management, but also to the obligation of its employees and their awareness of the surrounding area.
This is why it is important to keep an eye on economic performance, the impact on the environment and the people living in the context of the organisation.
We have set into motion a number of initiatives since our foundation, but only in the last few years have we decided to make these public, to make it clear that we are not only “a manufacturing site”, but also a company of people who care about people.
To prove Industrie Polieco – M.P.B.’s commitment to the Circular Economy, in February 2022, the 450N and 750N cable conduits and the Polidren and Drenosewer pipes were awarded the “ReMade in Italy” label, achieving class B (30-60% band) with 40% recycled material. ReMade in Italy fulfils the Minimum Environmental Criteria (MEC) according to the Italian Public Contract Code, allowing public authorities to identify the best products from an environmental point of view (GPP – Green Public Procurement).
Ronald McDonald Italy Foundation is the Italian headquarters of RMHC, an international non-profit organization that, through several programs, including Ronald Houses, helps thousands of parents to stay close to their child during hospital treatment. Industrie Polieco – M.P.B. cooperates with the structure in Brescia which constantly needs food for the families it hosts but also funds to guarantee support to the families of young patients.
Industrie Polieco – M.P.B.’s commitment this year is to support foundations that fight against cancer. Our commitment began at Easter when Easter doves were purchased by A.N.T. (National Cancer Association) to all our employees. Subsequently, we decided to support Alessandra Bono, a non-profit organization engaged in countless projects: medical research, training and support to the weakest people.
Industrie Polieco – M.P.B.’s support to hospitals continues. This time we moved to S. Angelo dei Lombardi near our branch in Conza della Campania. The hospital needed portable defibrillators to be kept in every ward to allow fast intervention in an emergency without waiting for the less handly equipment of the hospital to arrive.
The pandemic has put a large number of people in difficulty and a variety of projects have been set up to distribute food parcels to those in need.
Industrie Polieco – M.P.B. has contributed to the food collection programme by donating 6,300 kg of pasta to a number of local schemes.
With the purchase of Christmas hampers for our employees, we also assisted a Clown therapy association that works in hospitals and nursing homes for the elderly throughout the Brescia area.
Italy was one of the first countries affected by the Coronavirus.
The provinces of Brescia and Bergamo, in particular, recorded the largest number of victims.
The head office of the parent group is located in this area and we experienced the spread of the pandemic first hand.
We immediately realised the seriousness of the situation and the enormous need for healthcare facilities.
We then contacted Brescia Health Service and made a donation, followed by a second, to purchase anti-infection equipment required by medical staff.
Polieco France produces Ecobox pipes made from 100% recycled materials.
Each day we breathe a second life into 450,000 milk bottles which, after being properly treated, are transformed into our products.
In one year at the Feillens manufacturing site alone, we recycle approximately 150 million high-density, polyethylene bottles and flasks.
Our aim is to prove the validity of these products at the European level so that we can expand production to the entire Polieco-M.P.B. Group.
For Christmas 2019, Industrie Polieco – M.P.B. decided not to give presents, but to allocate that part of the budget to support the construction of a New Galenic Formulation Laboratory of the Corporate Pharmacy in the Children’s Hospital in Brescia.
The new laboratory makes it possible to prepare pharmaceuticals tailored for children and create medicines that are not available on the market, which are needed for the treatment of rare diseases.
