Ridolfi’s website reports the company’s sustainability programs and progress: “Ridolfi tracks and reports our carbon footprint for transportation, energy, materials and waste generation. We’ve taken actions to put our principles into practice—from driving a hybrid company car, reducing our office lighting by 25%, purchasing green products and recycling or composting virtually all of our waste stream. We are a carbon-neutral organization, and we offset any greenhouse gas emissions produced with donations to Native Energy. We work to enhance the sustainability of our communities, from volunteering to manage wastes at public events to donating our profits to like-minded causes. We are experts in helping like-minded organizations that want to be cleaner and greener.”
Bruno Ridolfi, Principal Engineer, Mining and Waste Management, participates in the NBIS By-Product Synergy program as a technical advisor on waste to resources opportunities, and the Refractory Brick and Foundry Sand roundtable.
