Our goals for a more sustainable future

Sustainability has been central to the SOL Group's strategy since its foundation. In fact, the Group believes that its growth is closely linked to the growth of the world in which it operates.

In 2015, the United Nations launched the 2030 Agenda, a project of international interest that aims to align countries' development processes by pursuing 17 common sustainable development goals, to be achieved by 2030.

While recognising sustainable growth as a fundamental element, the SOL Group is committed to translating the principles of sustainable development into real actions and projects, with the aim of creating long-term value for the Group, its people, its customers, the community and the environment.

Sustainability for employees

The SOL Group has always invested in the well-being of its people, fostering a meritocratic and inclusive climate, based on the principles of equality and equal opportunities, where collaboration and listening are considered essential.

The commitment to workers' health and safety is guaranteed through extensive training, regular inspections, internal audits, investments in vehicles and equipment, but above all thanks to the cooperation of all our employees.

Through the Code of Ethics, the SOL Group shares with all its employees the principles to which the people of SOL must refer when adopting and implementing good behavioural practices in line with the Group's identity and spirit.

Sustainability for customers and patients

The centrality of customers and patients is a primary objective: seeking to anticipate their needs, the Group works on product and service innovation, guaranteeing high standards of quality and safety.

In the industrial sector, solutions with high technological and innovative content offer safer, cheaper and more environmentally friendly performance.

In the healthcare sector, the wide range of services offered to hospitals (in terms of services, equipment and facilities) and to patients (through the range of home care services) places the care of people at the centre.

In the biotechnology sector, innovative diagnostic products allow the prevention and early detection of potential health problems, significantly affecting the quality of life of people and their treatments.

The SOL Group ensures the traceability of products and medical devices, allowing their immediate localisation and timely intervention measures in the event of problems.

Sustainability for the industrial sector and for healthcare


The Group works to reduce energy consumption and emissions by offering highly effective and efficient oxy-fuel solutions, which are widely used in metal, ceramic and cement production processes.

With the construction of plants for the on-site production (plants built directly at the customer's premises and managed remotely) of oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and syngas mixtures, the Group offers a solution that has a lower environmental impact, reduces road transport and streamlines energy consumption.

The Group protects water resources by offering industrial customers a service to improve waste water quality, thanks to the use of oxygen in sewage treatment.

It promotes sustainable mobility by investing in the development of technological solutions that use hydrogen and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), including from renewable sources (BioLNG).

It contributes to the reduction of food waste and consumer safety by adopting preservative-free food freezing systems and promoting modified and controlled atmosphere storage technologies which preserve the organoleptic characteristics of consumer products.

It invests in systems aimed at recovering carbon dioxide, which is otherwise released into the atmosphere.

The environmental impact from activities in the health sector is also reduced through the computerisation of accounting documents and reporting, and the optimisation of inventory. This is achieved through management systems that also monitor the preventive, corrective and extraordinary maintenance of all devices.


By first studying possible technological solutions theoretically, then in the field, SOL has developed CryoTruck, a refrigeration system capable of exploiting the thermodynamic characteristics of liquid nitrogen for cold generation in an ecological and sustainable manner.
