The report also noted Brembo’s focus on natural resource management, promoting process and product circularity. It highlighted the company’s efforts in water recovery and the use of secondary raw materials, such as processing residues and scrap ferrous materials. Brembo said it recovered about 440,000 tons of waste produced in 2023, 88% of the total.

In recognition of its environmental efforts, Brembo scored A- in both climate change and water resource management from the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) in 2023, the company said.

Brembo added it also supports various social programs through partnerships with local NGOs. One notable program is the “House of Smile” in India, established in 2017. It offers education, psychological support, medical care, and vocational training, benefiting over 5,000 women and children in severe vulnerability.
