Logistics solutions ZERO PLASTIC GOAL OPTIMIZED TRANSPORT 98.8% of the products sold travel inside cardboard packaging, an ecological material as it is made of natural fibres and easily recyclable at the end of life. 91% of the cardboard used contains 80% to 100% recycled paper. The products are designed to take up as little space as possible: stackable frames, foldable bag holders and compactable handles are just some of the solutions developed by TTS which, in addition to ensuring maximum efficiency in terms of space saving, allow to optimize packaging and therefore transport, reducing the environmental impact. 8

SUPPLIERS ZERO KM THE ORIGIN OF MATERIALS Suppliers and printers within a 45 km radius! The plastic used to make the products comes exclusively from selected suppliers that are located at a maximum distance of 45 km from TTS headquarters: the proximity to manufacturers and printers makes it possible to guarantee the origin of the materials and reduce CO2 emissions linked to transport. 9

Clean Energy Choosing its own growth policies, TTS has always privileged choices of sustainable technological innovation and environmental responsibility of production processes. In this perspective, since 2011 it has installed three photovoltaic systems on the roofs of its headquarters: with a total power of 310 kWp, it is able to produce up to 400.000 kWh/year. The clean energy obtained from the plant is able to completely feed the company. 10

500 Carbon Footprint The climate change we are witnessing is an urgent and potentially irreversible threat that requires, today more than ever, to be a priority: to combat global warming by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The commitment of TTS on this front has resulted in the development of a system for the quantification of greenhouse gas emissions for each phase of the product life according to ISO 14067: in this way, it is possible to identify the most critical phases, implementing concrete actions aimed at reducing CO2e. Our commitment has allowed us to reach an important goal: TTS is one of the first companies in the world to have obtained the implemented CFP Systematic Approach certification. The CFP calculation can be carried out on the trolley lines: Magic, MagicArt, Magic Hotel, Green, Green Hotel, Nick, Nickita. carbon footprint study products with 12

THE FIRST CARBON NEUTRAL TROLLEY LINE Carbon Neutral In 2019 TTS has started a long-term compensation programme to fully absorb the emissions associated with the annual production of Magic trolleys thus making it A concrete gesture in support of important projects of responsible environmental management that not only allows the absorption of countless tons of CO ² but also helps to safeguard endangered ecosystems, protect biodiversity and protect the work of local communities. 14

100% RECYCLABLE PLASTIC TROLLEYS Magic trolleys are greener! RECYCLED POLYPROPYLENE VIRGIN POLYPROPYLENE CHROMED IRON STAINLESS STEEL ALUMINUM TTS trolleys are made with certified recycled plastic PSV - Second Life Plastic components. The use of recycled plastic makes it possible to reduce CO2 emissions during production by one third compared to those already released with virgin polypropylene. The impact of virgin polypropylene is in fact 8 times lower compared to aluminum, 1 time compared to stainless steel and half compared to chrome-plated iron. Moreover, TTS trolleys are 100% recyclable at end of life 15

150 Recycled plastic PLASTIC SECOND LIFE The PSV mark allows easy identification of materials and manufactured products obtained from the recycling of plastic waste, thus guaranteeing their sustainability and low environmental impact. Environmental responsibility has always influenced TTS’s choices, also with regard to raw materials: the result is a wide range of products with components made of recycled plastic, certified Second Life Plastic (PSV) by the Institute for the Promotion of Recycling Plastics (IPPR). Unlike simple self-declarations, PSV certification is a structured system that guarantees the quality and traceability of recycled plastics. In addition, it involves periodic surveillance by the Certification Authority to ensure compliance over time with the requirements for the maintenance of the mark. recycled plastic (PSV) items in

IT/016/039 Ecolabel Textiles The wide range of TTS yarns includes flat mops and mops certified Ecolabel EU, the environmental excellence mark of the European Union that identifies the products with the lowest environmental impact. The prestigious label was issued after a careful evaluation by independent experts, carried out based on rigorous scientifically defined criteria. In an Ecolabel product there is a certification for the absence or presence within very strict limits of countless substances harmful to both people and the environment, including lead, formaldehyde and biocides. The Ecolabel also certifies sustainability from the production phase and resistance over time to washing, rubbing and light. The EU Ecolabel is a European eco-label that certifies products with high performance standards and low environmental impact throughout their life cycle. EU ECOLABEL 26

According to the study ‘Plastic in Nature: Assessing Plastic Ingestion from Nature to People’ commissioned by the WWF from Newcastle University (Australia), 250 grams of microplastics ingested through liquids and food pass through a human body every year, with little known health effects. TTS had its bestselling mops tested according to ISO 23231 by a specialised external laboratory to detect the release of microplastics during textile washing: Microriccio and Microblue passed the test and were confirmed as environmentally friendly products. Fewer microplastic emissions mean more protection for the environment and health: using wash-resistant textiles helps take care of our planet and its inhabitants.

TTS offers a wide range of microfibres highly efficient and with low environmental impact. Microfibre, thanks to its high absorbing power guarantees a large floor coverage while the physical-mechanical action of its fibres acts on dirt molecules, catches them thus reducing the quantity of water and chemical needed. Microfibre is characterised by increased resistance and longer life of the product in comparison with traditional yarns, confirming itself as an excellent long-term investment.

Dosely is a soaking station allowing to soak single mops on demand, with considerable water and chemical saving. With Dosely it is possible to soak only the mops really needed, avoiding you to prepare mops, which could be unused. The dosage of the cleaning solution can be adjusted from 50 to 350 ml according to size of the area to clean and the kind of dirt. Only the side of the mop that goes in contact with the surface is soaked, only the chemical really needed will be used. Dosely is fully automated, it does not need electricity to work and does not require the use of batteries that must be disposed of at the end od its life. DOSE THE RIGHT THING Soaking station 34

Making a proper separate waste collection is a prerequisite for recycling and a common duty to protect the environment. If managed correctly, waste can become a precious resource: its recycling allows the recovery of raw materials that are subsequently reintroduced into the production cycle, significantly reducing the impact on the environment. TTS’s commitment on this front results in a special range of products specifically designed to make separate waste collection simpler and more effective: bag-holder inserts and removable dividers allow you to freely configure the compartments of the trolley to give each waste the right place while the adhesive labels ensure the proper disposal of different types of waste in the appropriate bins, most of which are certified PSV - Second Life Plastic.
