CAAT is committed to operating on the market in an environmentally responsible manner. The business model is extremely sensitive to the management of the impacts of the activity on the environment. The Centre is committed to reducing its environmental footprint by adopting proactive measures against climate change in accordance with the guidelines established in previous years.


In order to achieve the commitments to sustainability, CAAT has developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) that applies to all activities carried out by the organisation.
In particular, the ISO 14001 certification, an international standard of environmental excellence, emphasises the following points:

  • ensuring that the environment is protected and preserved;
  • integrating and enhancing the effectiveness of the Organisational, Management and Control Model in order to prevent any environmental crimes and reduce the risk of sanctions;
  • ensuring the systemic control of all environmental compliance obligations over time;
  • promoting environmental awareness and participation among employees, suppliers, and all users;
  • providing reasonable and continuous improvements to the EMS, in order to achieve greater environmental performance over the course of its life cycle.

During the meeting on 6 October 2020, The Board of Directors of the Turin Agri-Food Centre (CAAT) endorsed a document with which the Company’s Environmental Policy is outlined.

“I express my deepest satisfaction”, stated the CAAT President, Marco Lazzarino, “for the approval of the document on Environmental Policy, which took place at today’s Board of Directors’ meeting. It is a document that, starting from the goals already achieved, outlines the guidelines and sets out the principles, as well as actions, that will allow CAAT to obtain the ISO 14001 certification. The protection of the environment is one of the main axes on which the action of the Board of Directors and the Management of CAAT will be based”.


“This represents a strategic step”, explained the Director General of CAAT, Gianluca Cornelio Meglio, “since it contains the objectives that will guide the Company’s operations. This is intended to enhance the sensitivity of all the actors that benefit from the Centre to environmental issues, by contributing to the adaptation of all processes in accordance with current regulations”.
