CO2, SIT obtains certification on the Carbon Footprint

June 1st, 2022

Padua, 01 June 2022 – SIT continues its ESG path and adds another fundamental element to its sustainability roadmap, namely the certification of the Product Carbon Footprint management system (CFP Systematic Approach).

Bureau Veritas Italia, a world leader in inspection, compliance verification, and certification services, has certified SIT’s systematic approach to analyzing the life cycle of products, in a “cradle-to-gate” logic in line with the standards required by ISO 14067: 2018. The systematic approach makes it possible to calculate the emission values related to the individual products offered, but also to carry out scenario simulations on the products under development in order to adopt the optimal technical, production, and logistic solutions from a CFP perspective.

The process is therefore an officially recognized tool available to the company for achieving the emission reduction targets.

Chiara de’ Stefani, Corporate Sustainability Director of SIT, comments that “The management of CO2 emissions plays a central role in our sustainability strategy”. “The adoption of the CFP Systematic Approach measurement standard for the certification of our results, in addition to certifying our progress in a qualified and independent way, provides us with a management tool, a real operational tool to assess the carbon impact of our decisions. A know-how that has become a corporate asset, in which we will continue to invest “.

As an initial field of application, SIT has chosen to focus on three product lines of the Heating division: mechanical controls, fans, and electronic controls.
The certificate is valid until 2025 and includes the Italian plants of Rovigo, Montecassiano, and Padua; abroad, the factories included in the certification are in Romania, China, Mexico, and the Netherlands.

The first MID-certified, 100% hydrogen meter in the world is Italian, and is produced by SIT

November 22nd, 2021

Padua, 22 November 2021 – MeteRSit – part of the Metering division of SIT group that designs, manufactures and sells smart gas meters – has obtained the “MID – Measuring Instrument Directive” certification for the Domusnext® 2.0 MMU6 H2 residential meter that is 100% hydrogen compatible. The certification, issued by the notified body NMi Certin B.V., is valid in Europe and the UK, as well as other, non-EU countries, and guarantees the accuracy and reliability of the measuring instrument (the meter).

The Domusnext® 2.0 MMU6 H2 meter model – the first in the world to obtain the MID certification – was developed within the British government program “Hy4Heat”, in collaboration with BEIS – Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. It is also the same model that was installed in the 100% hydrogen-powered houses built in Gateshead, in the north of England, and the same that was exhibited at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, at the BEIS stand.

At COP26 the hydrogen meter made by SIT. CEO Federico de’ Stefani: “We need to work together to accelerate decarbonization"

November 8th, 2021

Glasgow, November 8, 2021 – “Using hydrogen at the post of gas is a virtuous behavior because green hydrogen is sustainable”. It starts with these word by Federico de’ Stefani, CEO of SIT, a video of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS – Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) of the UK government which is currently being broadcasted at COP26 – the United Nations conference on climate change that is taking place in Glasgow – together with the hydrogen meter developed by MeteRSit, a company of the group, called DomusNext® MMU6 H2. The video reports the experience of SIT as a company that anticipated the production of gas meters that could also work with hydrogen. “Our commitment was to develop meters that were hydrogen-ready – underlines de ‘Stefani in the video – as well as for boilers: when hydrogen will be available the certified installer will be able with a very simple, short intervention to switch from the use of natural gas to hydrogen. The cost for hydrogen devices will be very similar to gas ones and nothing will change for the user. In the hydrogen supply chain the residential use of hydrogen is the only ready to be employed: whether there is still work to do about the generation and the transportation of hydrogen, we are ready with appliances that make the use of hydrogen safe for residential use. What will change for the users are the benefits, as they will become part of the “hydrogen revolution”, actively contributing to a more sustainable world”.
