The Agizza Ciro company is oriented towards respect for the environment and follows the criteria of sustainability in agricultural and agri-food production. Sustainable agriculture consists of the use of agricultural techniques and protocols able to respect the environment, biodiversity and the natural ability to absorb waste from the earth.
The company Agizza Ciro uses less and less pesticides and plant protection products , in fact the use of chemical products for the defense of crops from animal and plant pests poses important questions, both from an environmental point of view and from a health point of view, both agricultural operators who use plant protection products that belong to their families and to all those who live close to the cultivated crops
The Agizza Ciro company uses conservative processing systems. Conservation work, ie without the turning of the soil, in the long run show positive effects on the physical and chemical-biological parameters of the soil, respecting its structure and composition. This system also favors the preservation of moisture and infiltrations, combats erosion and improves water quality.
Agizza Ciro manages waste, waste and packaging in a sustainable manner, following "green" procedures at every stage of the disposal process, from classification to transport. All the protocols and the agricultural techniques used foresee, already upstream, a reduction of the waste that, once produced, are disposed of with zero impact systems. The natural and vegetable waste, in particular, are reconverted and reused by companies in the livestock sector.
The Agizza Ciro company respects the sustainability criteria safeguarding the safety of every single operator in all the phases of his work. Each employee is provided with appropriate training and all the necessary tools to avoid any risks, already reduced to a minimum thanks to maintenance programs and periodic checks performed with commitment and professionalism.
Agizza Ciro optimizes energy sources by reducing waste: in particular, in 2012, it built two photovoltaic plants, covering all the company's roofs, of almost 130 kWh total and capable of producing 52 MWh per year, the annual equivalent of about 15 families. Thanks to this system, the release into the atmosphere of about 800 tons of carbon dioxide, is avoided.
