Over 50 years of being mindful of our impact.
Elmec was born in 1971 as a company quite different from what it is today, but already committed to envisioning sustainable development beyond mere economic growth. We strive to engage people in initiatives aimed at mitigating the effects of climate change, reducing waste, and promoting adaptation and offsetting. Our environmental priorities include:


It is important for Elmec Informatica to invest in sustainable technologies, such as the use of recyclable materials, energy efficiency of products, and the utilization of renewable energy sources. Additionally, Elmec reduces its own energy consumption by employing low-power technologies and implementing energy consumption monitoring and control systems.


The company monitors its greenhouse gas emissions and works towards reducing them. Moreover, it considers the effects of climate change on its operations, for instance, by reducing plastic usage and supporting initiatives that promote environmental sustainability.


Elmec Informatica implements circular economy models based on rethinking the life cycle of products and their refurbishment and reintegration into the market. Waste management is also included in the circular economy approach. The company properly manages its waste through practices like recycling and proper waste separation.

Simplicity and trust

These are the foundational values of all the services that Elmec offers to its employees. Simplicity because our initiatives are practical, easily accessible, and available at any time. Trust because, in most cases, employee initiatives are self-service and involve autonomous payment, free from controls. The value of all these initiatives lies not only in fostering work-life balance but above all in nurturing a culture of trust and mutual respect.


Zero waste company restaurant

The company restaurant embodies our concept of smart working: experiencing Elmec locations as a place of work, social interaction, and well-being. It is a multifunctional space based on the concept of "zero waste," sourcing low-impact raw materials whenever possible, preferably from the surrounding areas. The menu offered to employees is inspired by a healthy and balanced diet, accommodating different tastes and possible food intolerances. The company also provides a nutritionist for personalized consultations.
