SUSTAINABILITY

Operating with a competitive edge in the long term while championing social, environmental and economic values.

We have believed in the importance of sustainability for over one hundred years; it is our way of generating and distributing value in a lasting and independent way, attuned to reconciling the needs of those with whom we interact every day: customers, suppliers, associations, policymakers.

The experience of a grand past, the challenge of a continually changing future. Together.

News from the world of sustainability

Integrated report

The Integrated Repor is a very important annual appointment, which allows us to get in touch with our stakeholders, analyze and tell the commitment and attention we devote to issues related to economic, environmental and social sustainability. The document is prepared according to the GRI Standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and, for some indicators, it follows the GRI G4 Electric Utilities Sector Supplement. The Integrated Report also refers to the Integrated Reporting Framework (IR Framework), outlined by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). Adherence to the principles of the Integrated Report also allows us to illustrate the process by which we create value over time, through the analysis of the capitals that influence and are influenced by the activities of the Group.

This year, for the first time, the document is also aligned with the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Sustainable Finance

Following its first Green Financing Framework published in July 2019, A2A has structured a new Sustainable Financing Framework in May 2021. The Sustainable Finance Framework is fully aligned with ICMA and LMA’s latest principles and it combines both Green/Use of Proceeds and Sustainability-Linked approaches.

Regarding the new Sustainability-Linked component, a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) has been selected in order to fully reflect the two pillars of A2A’s strategic plan, namely Energy Transition and Circular Economy. The selected KPIs ( Scope 1 CO2 Emission Intensity; Renewable Energy Capacity Installation; Waste Treated in Group’s Material Recovery Plants) are linked to ESG targets that actively contribute to the achievement of UN SDGs number 7, 11, 12, and 13.

A2A strongly believes that all types of sustainable finance instruments can promote the transition toward a low-carbon economy through (i) the direct financing of green projects and (ii) the long-term commitment toward ambitious sustainability performance targets.

A2A for its local communities

We have, since 2015, published the Local Sustainability Reports, to tell our story, and to allow everyone in the community to see and understand the Group's efforts, and its successes, in the communities where it conducts its business. Moreover, beginning in 2017, these documents include a description of the efforts made toward reaching the UN’s sustainable-development goals, tailored to the needs of each community.
