ROSA has studied the carbon footprint of aluminum and steel columns. The results of the research undoubtedly indicate that the production process of anodized aluminum columns, compared to the production process of galvanized steel columns, is characterized by significantly lower CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, making them much more climate-friendly products.

The carbon footprint research was carried out by Bureau Veritas Polska, an internationally recognized research unit.

The aim of the study was to calculate the carbon footprint that arises from the extraction of raw materials to the production of columns, their transport and disposal. The study took into account the data on the production of columns of different heights in order to fully obtain information on the ROSA product range.



The test results clearly show that the production of one anodized aluminum column generates 41,1% less CO2 than during the production of one galvanized steel column.

The carbon footprint research was carried out by Bureau Veritas Polska, an internationally recognized research unit, in accordance with the GHG Protocol Product Life Cycle Accounting and Reporting Standard. The current data for 2021 have been updated by the ROSA Group based on the methodology of Bureau Veritas Polska.

We have created a symbol with a numerical quantity informing about the size of the generated carbon footprint for anodized poles, extension arms and aluminum lighting masts. The new mark was placed on the website next to the product and in the technical data sheets before the Cradle to Cradle® certification mark. By downloading this document, you will see information on the amount of carbon footprint produced for a given product.
