NSG Pilkington’s automotive site in Settimo Torinese, Italy has become the first fully decarbonised site within the NSG Group.

Starting in April, the site has been operating solely on renewable energy provided by a combination of certified renewable electricity and a district heating network.

This will reduce the site’s emissions by 1,650 tonnes of CO2 per year, the equivalent of planting around 2,400 trees or removing almost a thousand cars from the roads.
