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

In order to improve its supply chains with a view to ensuring sustainability and animal welfare, in 2017 Markas announced a progressive reduction in the number of eggs supplied from battery cages, with the aim of obtaining 100% of the eggs and egg products from floor and free-range systems within the year 2024. In the course of 2019, we have been able to make a significant contribution to achieving this ambitious goal by reducing the amount of eggs purchased from caged hens by 70% and favouring eggs from free-range and barn hens (with an increase of 20% compared to 2018).
