What is the World Earth Day
Earth Day, is the official day dedicated to environmental awareness and protection of our planet. It is celebrated every year on April 22 since 1970, so we arrived at the 51st edition. It is the event that historically has managed to mobilize more people in the fight against climate change, with over 1 billion people involved each year.
The history of Earth Day
The institution of this day is due to the American peace activist John McConnell. In 1970, a time of great pacifist and ecological mobilizations, he proposed to dedicate one day a year to our planet. At first, the celebrations of this day took place only in the United States, but since 1990 the event has become international, involving more than 150 nations each year.
Earth Day is an opportunity for the world population to reflect on the actions in favor of climate protection, the innovation of science, the education of youth and all communities against all forms of pollution.

Respect for nature has been a priority for us since we established our company. We care about the research and development of new technologies with the lowest possible environmental impact. In addition, we have installed photovoltaic panels on the roof of our headquarters to improve energy efficiency by avoiding the consumption of non-renewable energy. Our world is a unique place where human beings and nature are united by a strong bond.
