FRA Group has embraced the green company philosophy by starting the installation of photovoltaic panels on the roofs of its factories, in order to integrate electricity supplies with 30% of its own production.
The company has currently started the installation of photovoltaic panels on the Dusino 2 plant, for a total of 833 modules installed and, by the end of 2025, it plans to start installation activities also on the Dusino 1 and Dusino 3 plants.
Thanks to the installation of photovoltaics, the Group has reduced energy consumption, the greenhouse gas emissions and, in the long term, will allow for considerable economic savings.

Company Car Policy
The attention that FRA Group has towards the reduction of the environmental impact is also realized through the use of hybrid vehicles.
Starting in 2022, the company changed the car policy reserved for management, making it mandatory for all executives to choose a hybrid car by the end of 2023.

The migration of applications to cloud computing allows the exploitation of centralized servers shared among multiple users, gradually eliminating the local corporate servers that produce very high consumption for the company
