TGR Leonardo is the science and environment TV news aired daily by the Italian National Broadcast Network; the program presents current news concerning the world of technology, health, economy, environment and society.
In a recent focus on energy efficiency virtuous companies, the program showed beautiful aerial views of the Gessi Park, and its vast rooftop solar plants, which generate electricity and heat for the uses of the factory.
In fact, a major concern of Gessi has always been to make products compatible with the environment in their both construction materials and production processes. These latter are carried out with such efficiency, we can say Gessi is eco – efficient.
Managed with humanistic spirit, Gessi rests its foundations on the tangible dream to be a “Oasis-like Company", and a manufacturer that focuses on the human factor and the pursuit of unparalleled excellence. This aim encompasses a painstaking attention to the quality of processes, products, relationships, with a special focus on safeguarding people and the environment.
True to its ethical goals, Gessi’s research focuses on cost-effective, technically centered and environmentally responsible business solutions; this approach led Gessi to be a pioneer in the transition from a business model based on incentives to one centered on self-production and use of green energy (clean and from renewable sources). In fact, Gessi has installed 4 hectares of rooftop photovoltaic surface realizing one of the most innovative and advanced power generation systems in Italy, which avoids the emission of about a thousand tons of CO2 every year. Yet going way beyond this, the Company has developed the skills to integrate all innovative energy technologies with the aim of reaching full energy self-sufficiency, further increasing its prestige of an environmentally responsible company, and becoming an international case history in this field.
