In the A2A Group’s business model sustainability is as a strategic element for seeking to achieve growth that is balanced from an economic, social and environmental standpoint. The Sustainability Report, which reaches its fifth edition this year, is the means by which the A2A Group reports annually on the action it has taken and how it has performed with respect to these aspects.
The document provides qualitative and quantitative information in the greatest detail possible on the activities carried out by the Group during the year and their effect on its stakeholders (shareholders, customers, suppliers, employees, collaborators, the public administration, etc.) from an environmental aspect (with matters ranging from the reduction of emissions to the development of energy from renewable sources and from sustainable mobility to energy efficiency), an economic aspect (distributed value added, capital expenditure, etc.) and social aspect (direct and indirect employment, collaboration with local communities, support for initiatives having social and cultural interest, etc.).
The Sustainability Report has been prepared in accordance with the standards of the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) “Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (version 3.1)”, together with the Electric Utilities Sector Supplement - Sustainability Reporting Guidelines & Electric Utility (RG Version 3.1/EUSS Final Version). The 2012 edition of the A2A sustainability report scored the top application level (A+).
