Quality and Environment
Constantly pursuing excellence, in accordance with the principles of safety and health, to protect and preserve the historical and environmental heritage

Being aware of the historical and environmental heritage to be protected and preserved, Hausbrandt considers the implementation of an Integrated Quality and Environmental Management System as a strategic and essential tool. Through a set of harmonious processes and clear rules, such tool enables us to maintain the skills and knowledge which allow us to keep pursuing excellence, in compliance with the legal principles concerning the health and safety of the products and their quality.

Since 2010, Hausbrandt has been certified according to UNI EN ISO 14001, a voluntary international standard which specifies the requirements for an environmental management system.

INFRASTRUCTURES

We acquire infrastructures, systems and equipment which, by leveraging sustainable technical progress and scientific research, promote the health and safety of our collaborators, customers and, in general, the community, allowing at the same time a rationalization of the production costs.

The most important goal is the modernization of our facilities (started in 2016), partly already achieved thanks to a number of new machines, but above all the opening of the new logistic hub, whose rooftop, entirely covered with solar panels, will allow us to power our production facilities.

ENVIRONMENT

We are committed to preventing any form of pollution, particularly with reference to our emissions or waste waters, as well as to prevent any form of waste of non-renewable resources directly generated or indirectly influenced by our activities. We recycle production waste and ensure safe waste disposal as much as possible.

We adopt, as far as possible, an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) approach which allows us to study and improve environmental impacts, preventing any form of waste of non-renewable resources directly generated or influenced by our activities.

Projects currently being developed and to be implemented in the near future:

Recovery of silver skins as a byproduct
Compaction of mixed packaging to reduce the number of collections by authorized waste disposal companies

Both will help us achieve a better waste management

RENEWABLE ENERGY

Since 2017, after the inauguration of the new logistic hub, the energy we have been using is generated by solar panels. Our PV system produces 199 KW which help us cover the energy needs of our logistic hub.

We have managed to optimize energy consumption thanks to our high-efficiency plants and a LED lighting network with automatic dimming

QUALITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

CORPORATE POLICY

 

Hausbrandt Trieste 1892 S.p.A. believes in the importance of providing products and services that generate value by adhering to sustainable practices that are economically feasible, socially equitable and respectful towards man, the environment and the product.

The implementation of an Integrated Quality and Environmental Management System is considered a strategic and essential tool. Through a set of harmonious processes and clear rules, such tool enables us to maintain the skills and knowledge which allow the organization to continuously strive for excellence, in compliance with the legal requirements concerning the health and safety of the products and their quality, as well as the needs and expectations of the stakeholders, being aware of the relational, historical and environmental heritage to be protected and preserved.

The Hausbrandt Management System integrates the ISO 9001-14001-22000, BRC-IFS, Halal and Kosher standards.

The achievement of the status of organic coffee producer is the synthesis of a production system suited to the preferences of certain consumers for products obtained with natural substances and processes, combining the best environmental practices, a high level of biodiversity, the protection of natural resources and animal welfare.

Moreover, in order to strengthen the culture of legality in the corporate context as a guarantee of reliability in relationships, Hausbrandt has adopted the 231 organizational model. By implementing and disseminating its code of ethics, Hausbrandt intends to share its values of social responsibility.

Hausbrandt aims to achieve the following general objectives:

  • Ensuring our resources are allocated to the continuous improvement of our performance and to the achievement of goals in line with the provisions of the Management System and in compliance with the
    adopted mandatory and/or voluntary standards applicable to our business;
  • Increasing the operational quality of business processes in a logic of risk management, opportunity maximization and continuous improvement;
  • Maintaining high quality standards for our products, focusing on tradition, innovation and the quality of the main raw materials used in our production processes – green coffee, water, malt, barley, hops – by monitoring their healthiness, allergens, origin, traceability and wholesomeness;
  • Constantly monitoring and improving the level of service in terms of:
    • Search for dialogue and interaction with the customer to obtain a real-time feedback on the ability of the organization to meet their requirements. This is done through constantly updated and functioning websites, guided visits to our facilities, events, support to cafés and public venues intended as reference points for art and culture;
    • Presence on the territory through an extensive commercial and logistic structure and a

constant availability of products in our peripheral warehouses;

  • Training for our intermediaries (freelancers and management): monitoring the

dissemination of skills that are the result of a long tradition, perfect knowledge of extraction methods and constant striving towards a perfect final result, in addition to encouraging the maintenance of the best Central European tradition for the production and serving of beer;

  • Attention to the expectations of all parties who are affected, perceive themselves to be

affected, or may affect the Hausbrandt System;

  • Acquiring and maintaining infrastructure, facilities and equipment that are suitable for the compliance of products and services and adopting practices which, by leveraging sustainable technical progress and scientific research, promote the health and safety of our employees, our customers and the community at large, while at the same time allowing a rationalization of production costs;
  • Continuously improving the health and safety conditions of all personnel working on behalf of Hausbrandt, promoting their participation and involvement in the constant effort to eliminate, prevent and reduce residual risks in the workplace;
  • Promoting long-lasting relationships and active collaboration with suppliers, in order to improve the company’s performance, by means of a clear and shared qualification and verification system;
  • Preventing any form of pollution, with particular reference to emissions, wastewater and waste;
  • Recycling or reducing processing waste as much as possible;
  • Adopting, as far as possible, an LCA approach which allows us to study and reduce environmental impacts, preventing any form of waste of non-renewable resources directly generated or influenced by our activities;
  • Acknowledging culture and training as an important factor of growth and continuous improvement which must be promoted internally, to our employees and managers, and externally, by developing projects in collaboration with external public and private organizations, being aware that a critical consumption capacity is a competitive advantage for the company;
  • Promoting the dissemination of our objectives through communications on our websites, house organ, company editorials and trade magazines, encouraging our suppliers, collaborators and dealers to adopt the above-mentioned Principles.

Hausbrandt’s management is committed to ensuring that this Policy is implemented. For this purpose, these general objectives are translated into a plan with specific and measurable qualitative goals and programs which allow us to assess and improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the system itself and to take action to address risks and opportunities.

Such goals are periodically reviewed.

Each business function is responsible for implementing the Corporate Policy and achieving the objectives within its competence.

This Policy is made available to the stakeholders and reviewed by the Management.
