Coexistence with the global environment
Belinka Perkemija, d.o.o., a member of the HELIOS, was presented with the FDI Award Slovenia 2020, which the government of the Republic of Slovenia awards as a recognition of exceptional contributions from foreign investors to the Slovenian business environment. The company received the award in the “green” category for their contribution to the preservation of nature and a clean environment. The award ceremony, with which public agency SPIRIT Slovenia traditionally honours foreign owners, Slovenian employees, as well as their suppliers and customers, took place on Wednesday, 16 December 2020, and was organized as a special virtual event given this years’ exceptional situation.
The company was recognized for a number of green measures introduced with the aim of reducing the carbon footprint and improving standards in the field of green chemistry in Slovenia. They are developing various methods to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which are formed as a by-product of production. Most CO2 is captured and liquefied. In addition, the company is working with partners to develop ways to incorporate CO2 into new green products and exploring opportunities to produce green hydrogen.
The company is continuously improving energy efficiency and is strongly dedicated to the introduction of the e-business. An extensive black pine grove was planted along the border of the industrial facility last year, with the aim of contributing to a healthier and more pleasant environment.
