- 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


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


Group plants are subject to the Emissions Trading Scheme

Avoided emissions of CO2 and energy savings in energy processes


  • 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
