Alfa Acciai Group
The Group comprises Alfa Acciai, one of the largest EAF steel mills in Italy, Acciaierie Sicilia, the market benchmark for the production of steel in Southern Italy, Ferroberica, at the forefront in Europe in the pre-shaping, assembly and laying of steel for reinforced concrete for all kinds of structural work – namely roads, railways and maritime infrastructures - and for public, industrial and civil building construction in general, and Tecnofil, which is among leading wire drawing mills in Europe for the production of wire.
Alfa Acciai Group has a great history, which started in the 1950s with the production of steel, rolling steel and downstream processed products, and currently boasts an yearly production capacity of 2.5 million tonnes.
Over the years, the parent company Alfa Acciai has implemented a policy of upstream and downstream integration of its business activity, which enables it to meet all its partners’ operating requirements and guarantee a superior standard of quality throughout the production process.
In 2021 the Alfa Acciai Group adopted the Sustainability Report as a tool for the transparent reporting of company performance, in line with its corporate culture and commitment to sustainability that has always featured in its DNA and company strategy. This decision further completes and strengthens its commitment to managing environmental, social and economic topics and aspects, and aims to facilitate clear communication and fruitful engagement with all stakeholders.
The scope of reporting includes all companies operating within the Alfa Acciai Group, i.e., Alfa Acciai, Acciaierie di Sicilia, Tecnofil and Ferroberica. Though it has a significantly lower impact than that of the Group’s two steel mills (Alfa Acciai and Acciaierie di Sicilia), Tecnofil shares the Group’s deep commitment to sustainability-related issues. For some time now, Tecnofil has been working on an important process of environmental efficiency and energy saving, which has involved various operations and production processes, specifically in the revamping of the drawing plant.Sustainability report 2021
