SUSTAINABILITY

Leading the path towards a better future

As a company, we pride ourselves on making sustainability one of our strategic pillars. Since the formation of YCOM, sustainability cuts through what we do. From increasing the wellbeing of our employees through the reduction of the environmental footprint, to the advanced research of lightweight sustainable materials. 

COMPANY

We want to lead the road to sustainability within the Motorsport industry and ultimately support the “UN Sustainable Developments Goals”.
Across the years, YCOM has engaged in:
Ecovadis CSR assessment (Silver level in 2019);
Solar Panel installation on YCOM’s headquarter roof (19,845kW nominal power);
Advanced research program in collaboration with Bcomp to accelerate the use of natural fibre (structural and non-structural components). 

Sustainable investment is part of everyday routine at YCOM. Energy and resources are managed at best to make each drop count: we make use of a closed water circuit for the Autoclave cooling system, we don’t use plastic bottles, and we recycle every material as far as conducting an overall recycling program, from manufacturing to office waste, including wet and dry carbon fibre.

 

In 2016, we replaced all office windows to improve YCOM facility’s indoor comfort: heating and cooling consumption have been reduced by 35%.
In 2017, we gained ISO-9001:2015 certification. In 2020, we onboarded the complete renovation of cooling and heating systems that we’ll complete by 2021, as well as started the process of the ISO-14001certification and FIA Environmental Accreditation Program.
