All or nothing

Sustainability only works as a whole: We work “green”!

Let's get to work

How we live sustainability

It starts with us

Sustainability is not only about the environment, but also about people themselves and the commitment of each individual. With height-adjustable desks we promote a sustainable healthy posture of our employees and use electric cars to make a general contribution to environmentally conscious driving.
76.037 m2
Photovoltaic systems
ave been installed in the packaging plants throughout the Val Venosta Valley.
12.256.409 kWh
annual output
is achieved via the solar systems. This corresponds to the annual electricity demand of about 4500 households.
3,851 households
could be supplied with electricity from sustainable hydropower with the VIP annual output.

VIP relies on green energy

We need a lot of energy for the activities in our packaging plants. Some of it is supplied by our environmentally friendly photovoltaic systems on site. We cover the remaining energy demand with green energy from the South Tyrolean energy service provider Alperia. This certified clean energy comes from South Tyrolean hydroelectric power plants and is generated without CO2 emissions. For the benefit of our environment and our customers, who receive increasingly sustainable products.

Sustainably produced, ecologically packaged

Without any plastic, if only possible – that’s the motto for the packaging of our sustainably produced apples. Whenever possible, we use biodegradable and renewable raw materials. Our principal material is 100% FSC®-certified cardboard from sustainable forestry. Our foodtainers also consist of cardboard or grass paper cardboard. As far as other packaging forms are concerned, we prefer ecological alternatives such as bags of 80% sugar cane or PVC-free films. It goes without saying that all our packaging types fulfill the standards of the food sector. Because ecology and highest quality can perfectly go hand in hand!

We wave the green flag

Sustainable in every detail. This is the message we also send to our clients and consumers. Our promotional gifts are no disposable items but are useful, durable and made of environmentally friendly materials. We choose recycled paper for our print forms and prefer advertising gadgets produced by local companies to avoid long transport routes and to strengthen regional economic cycles.

No Food Waste

Every apple is a good apple…

...even if it is too large, too small or has no nice color. We don’t throw anything away. This is why the South Tyrolean fruit cooperatives founded VOG Products, an own producer organization for the processing of industrial apples, more than 50 years ago to produce concentrate, apple juice and apple puree. And even the pomace or press residues are used.
