Brembo Receives CLEPA Innovator Award for Grennance Kit

BRUSSELS — CLEPA, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers, presented Brembo with the award for Top innovator in the Green category for its Beyond Greenance Kit at its recent Awards Ceremony in the Belgian capital.

Greenance Kit is the combination of top performances and enhanced durability, ensuring a much lower environmental impact during braking, with a significant reduction in particulate emissions: -83% in PM10 and -80% in PM2.5.

This pioneering solution guarantees extended mileage and a significant improvement in terms of the total cost of ownership of vehicles amounting to an average reduction of -15% during vehicles lifetime. It does ensure an increased durability of the brake discs, tripling their expected lifetime. This leads to relevant cost savings that are a top priority for long-distance professionals and drivers of light commercial vehicles and fleets owners.

“We are extremely thrilled to be recognized in such a relevant and future oriented category,” said Roberto Caravati, Chief Operating Officer Global Business Unit Aftermarket of Brembo. “Brembo Beyond Greenance Kit is the perfect combination of performance and durability, ensuring a much lower environmental impact during braking without compromising performance and safety.

“This recognition reaffirms our commitment to pioneering sustainable solutions and the greater good of our planet and reconfirms Brembo’s commitment that “Every new product will be greener than the one before.

“The acknowledgment from CLEPA underscores Brembo’s dedication to driving innovation, especially in the realm of green and sustainable practices. We extend our sincere gratitude to the association and the jury panel for seeing the potential and real-world impact of our work.”

Being recognized as a ‘Top Innovator’ is a testament to those enterprises that are pushing the boundaries, creating groundbreaking solutions, and leading the charge towards a more sustainable and green future.

The intention of this award is to spotlight an expanded range of top innovations stemming not just from members of the Association, but also the industry at-large.

The task of narrowing down to these top innovators was entrusted to an esteemed panel of jury members. Representing a diverse spectrum from industry specialists, EU institutions, research organizations to academia.
