There is a fundamental shift happening in the global economy. Demand for renewable energy is skyrocketing, governments are setting ambitious targets of becoming Carbon Neutral by 2050, and companies are stepping up to clean up their carbon footprints. The problem of climate change impacts mankind and planet earth, significantly undermining all aspects of life: from the availability of resources, economic activity, to the well-being of people. We all need to play the part to protect and improve our environment.
For business it’s no longer enough to be customer-centric.
Forward-thinking companies should become planet-centric as well and that involves expanding their corporate sustainability roadmap beyond their own footprint to scope 3 and 4. This includes all other indirect emissions that occur in a company’s value chain and avoided emissions as a result of the use of the product.
90% of natural capital impact and 80% of greenhouse gas emissions are produced in the supply chain.

At Lucchini RS we are focused on reducing our carbon footprint from “source to axle”, so we work alongside our supply partners to lower emissions throughout our entire value chain. Knowing our environmental impact allows us to take concrete steps in order to lower it until we can achieve Zero Emission goal.
INTRODUCING GREEN ID
Green ID is science-based tool that meets the ISO Standard. It is aimed at monitoring, quantifying, reporting and verifying the emissions actually associated with a product across scope 1 to 4. Green ID adds an important layer of transparency for our customers and our partners, putting the real CO2 impact of their products – and individual components – in numbers that are easy to understand and act upon.
Thanks to the Green ID we have achieved an X% reductions in CO2 emissions for the wheel Coradia Lint.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Not just the Carbon Footprint, but the entire environmental and energy management system is certified.
The LRS Group has a dedicated Energy Management department that helps us and our suppliers minimize environmental impact.
Registered and validated historic data across all the production phases offers a true snapshot of the evolution of the GhG emission improvements.

A “nature-positive” economy could unlock $10.1 trillion in business value annually by 2030.
– World Economic Forum, 2021
We believe that being environmentally conscious is not just about being a good corporate citizen. It’s a competitive advantage. As the economies will shift to a low-carbon model, businesses will increasingly compete on the basis of their sustainability. Lucchini RS not only actively invests in lowering our GhG emissions, but helping our clients, our business partners, our suppliers do the same. Then we strive to go a step further…
FROM ZERO EMISSION TO REGENERATION
If business wants to be planet-centric it needs to think beyond such concepts as carbon neutrality and sustainability. It’s our responsibility to proactively restore and replenish what we’ve lost and we need to do it in a way that allows communities and the planet to thrive too.
Our company’s manufacturing facilities are located in the heart of Italy. We’re forged in nature and we keep actively looking for ways to maintain this fragile equilibrium and contribute to our environment in positive ways, not just stay environmentally neutral. One of such ways is being able to measure our impact.
Because you can’t improve what you can’t measure.
