Our

actions

Element Centumbrie

ENERGY EFFICIENCY


Our facilities run with high energy efficiency and obtain their electricity supply from renewable sources. We currently produce approximately 400,000 KwH per year and are working to achieve full autonomy by 2026.

Element Centumbrie

WATER SAVINGS


We have equipped our faciities with state-of-the-art equipment that enables us to minimize the use of water during processing. We are able to recover vegetation water from the olive oil process and transform it from special waste into water for irrigation.



Element Centumbrie

AUTONOMOUS HEATING


We use olive pits, waste from the olive oil production, to fuel the farm heating systems. To date, we are able to meet about 50% of our heating needs this way. (This figure varies depending on the individual olive harvest season).

Element Centumbrie

WASTE ENERGY


We transfer pomace, olive processing waste, to a biodigester to produce electricity. Each year we recover about 140,000 kg of pomace, which corresponds to 1 KwH of energy for every kilogram of pomace.



Element Centumbrie

ORGANIC PRODUCTION


Our fields are organically farmed and sowing is based on seasonality. We work the land respecting the natural balance of nature, supporting the development of native species and redeveloping abandoned crops. We back up our commitment through certifications such as DOP, Organic and Slow Food Presidium.

Element Centumbrie

KM0


We manage the entire supply chain, from production to processing to packaging. We try to encourage the distribution of our product in the local area through pricing policies and personally taking care of customers. We also sell the products right on our farms and base our menus primarily on what we produce.



Element Centumbrie

PLASTIC-FREE PRODUCTION


Wherever possible, we are trying to eliminate plastic entirely and make use only of reusable or, if necessary, disposable but biodegradable items.

Element Centumbrie

ELECTRIC VEHICLES RECHARGE


We have an electric vehicle recharging station available to all CM Centumbrie customers and visitors.



Element Centumbrie

COR-TEN STEEL


We have chosen to finish the exterior of our buildlings with cor-ten steel, which, with its unique color tones and natural darkening cycles, becomes one with the surrounding countryside and minimizes the environmental and landscape impact.

Element Centumbrie

DISPOSAL OF CO2


We fight deforestation and care for more than 200 hectares of farmland, where the surface area of woods and olive groves, together with cereals, meadows and vegetable gardens, allow for a high absorption of carbon dioxide thus improving global atmospheric conditions.



Element Centumbrie

ZERO WASTE POLICY


Production waste that cannot be processed is put back into the system: residue from processing legumes and flours becomes animal feed, dishes on our menus are designed to use unsold bread, and so on. Everything is used in our kitchens, including scraps that can be turned into excellent bases for broths.

Element Centumbrie

LAND RESTORATION


We follow a reclamation policy where we prefer to redevelop abandoned olive groves and other crops before planting new ones. Building construction always takes place in areas needing redevelopment with the aim of creating no impact to the environment and returning respectable and inviting spaces to society.



Element Centumbrie

ETHICAL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION


We aim to produce value for the community, the organization and all stakeholders involved, acting with the scope of producing profits in an ethical manner. This is done through investments in innovation, technology, digitization and research; the prioritization of certified and local raw materials, the desire to contribute to the development of the local economy, and to produce goods and services that are useful and can improve the lives of consumers.
