MILAN ( – During the ‘ECOMONDO’ trade show in Rimini, where the validation process – the Sustainable Logistics Protocol – started about a year ago was completed, Bomi Italia received the ‘Sustainable Logistics’ brand. Bomi is the first logistics company in the Healthcare sector to obtain the brand. Alongside Bomi was Fresenius Medical Care, a long-term client and leader in the dialysis sector, a company that has always been committed to sustainability with technical and constructive solutions related to medical devices and their life cycle. Bomi Group and Fresenius will transfer, in the course of 2019, the principles of environmental, economic and social sustainability throughout the Health Supply Chain with the aim of bringing a real value to the final customer, the patient. In 2017 the Bomi Group joined SOS-LOG, the first association for sustainable logistics, fully embracing the concept that Sustainability does not only deal with the reduction of harmful emissions into the environment, but represents a “triple bottom line” of values and environmental objectives, as well as social and economic. In light of this, the Bomi Group decided to adopt the Sustainable Logistics Protocol, a technical document born out of the experience of the certification body ‘Lloyd’s Register LRQA’ in collaboration with SOS-LOG. A path that lasted about 10 months. With the ‘Sustainable Logistics’ brand, the validation process has closed and a much more complex phase has begun. “I am happy and satisfied with the work of the team carried out with commitment and conviction by all departments. – comments Serena Sessa, Global Quality Manager and project leader – The protocol has told us where we are and has helped us to lay the foundations of an organic sustainability development plan through which we will achieve the objectives we have set ourselves.” Giorgio Ruini, President of Bomi Group adds: “I am proud of this path where stimulation is flowing from the inside and signals are being received from the market into something truly innovative that we will develop as pioneers in our sector, and I thank Fresenius’ sincere participation has been able to once again bring confidence to our work.”
