Sustainable Development Goal

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

Policy and sustainability plan

Circular economy

Decarbonisation

Smartness in networks and services

People innovation

Actions

District heating

To help reduce the environmental impact of the cities, paying close attention to air quality, implementing district heating and district cooling

KPI 2017 2018 2023 plan objective
CO2 avoided thanks to the extension of district heating (t/year) -181,136 -211,197 -350,000
Finalization of the decarbonisation project of the Brescia district
heating system (105,000 tonnes of CO2 savings)
- - start-up

Sustainable mobility

To develop actions aiming to reduce the environmental footprint, like direct and indirect emissions of greenhouse gases)

KPI 2017 2018

2023 plan objective

Percentage of low environmental impact waste collection vehicles (Euro 6 vehicles, methane gas, electric) - (% of total) 27% 38% 68%
Percentage of replacement of Unareti vehicles with low environmental impact (Euro 6, methane gas and electric powered) - (% of total) 36% 48% 69%

Emissions

To develop actions aiming to reduce the environmental footprint, like direct and indirect emissions of greenhouse gases

KPI 2017 2018

2023 plan objective

CO2 emissions of electric power generation plants (kt CO2) 6,299 5,701 5,700
Emissions factor for power production plants (gCO2/kWh) 419 374 361
Total emissions avoided by reducing methane gas leaks - cumulative values compared to 2015 (tCO2eq) -17,145 -24,078 -86,000

2018 Performance

-7%

CO2 emissions - Scope 1 - compared to 2017 (amounted to approximately 7,5 million tonnes)

-10%

the Group emission factor (equal to 380 g/kWh) compared to 2017

3

million tonnes of CO2 avoided thanks to the technologies used to produce energy

25

Group plants are subject to the Emissions Trading Scheme

Avoided emissions of CO2 and energy savings in energy processes

Actions

  • The exit route from the use of coal in the city of Brescia has been started, thanks to numerous interventations, which will make it possible to start the first coal-free thermas season in 2022
  • -2 million tonnes of CO2 avoided thanks to the ESCO activities of Group Companies
  • A2A district heating system permitted to avoid more than 210 thousand tonnes of CO2 in 2018, thanks to the elimination of individual private boilers

2018 Performance

168

 electric columns installed

137,000

recharges were delivered, corresponding to 8.4 million km travelled with zero emissions

30

million euro are planned on sustainable mobility

Energy supplied by the charging stations

Actions

  • The programme of replacing company vehicles with new green vehicles (euro 6, natural gas or electric) continues
  • New electric mobility columns will be installed in the municipalities of Bergamo, Cremona and Rovato.
  • Identified the figure “mobility manager” and  launched the PassoIO project dedicated to sustainable mobility
