All-round sustainability

Sustainability first and foremost means taking care of the future.

We are therefore committed to promoting the sustainable development of our company, not only from an environmental, but also from an economic and social point of view. We make choices that emphasise long-term development in order to ensure the soundness of our family business and create value for all our stakeholders.

Our green sustainability consists of concrete actions aimed at constantly improving our environmental efficiency: from the use of ecological cleaning products certified to European standards to the campaign to reduce food waste, from the reduction of the environmental impact of our services to the attention to animal welfare in all our supply chains

Sustainability in numbers


Certified cleaning products

Markas has tested and successfully introduced a series of cleaning products, certified at European level, for some of our contracts for professional cleaning services. These are packaged in recycled and recyclable materials, all safe for people and the environment, and are yet another way to make our cleaning process ever more sustainable without compromising the high quality standards expected in those facilities where Markas is responsible for providing services.

Our compensatory projects

By measuring the “Carbon Footprint” of our school meals services, Markas takes an active part in projects to offset the annual greenhouse gas emissions linked to its work. These compensatory projects, both local and international, allow us to neutralize the environmental footprint of our services as part of an approach of greater environmental compatibility, with particular attention paid to forestry projects in Italy aimed at offsetting such emissions.

We care about animal welfare

We always stay true to our commitment to support animal welfare and sustainable sourcing. In 2017 Markas announced a progressive reduction in the number of eggs supplied from battery cages with the aim to switch to 100% cage-free eggs by 2024. In the course of 2020, 65% of all the eggs purchased by Markas were cage-free. This figure remained more or less the same compared to 2019, due to limited availability of products as a result of the pandemic. However, despite the challenges, we continued working with suppliers that pay particular attention to animal welfare.
