Develop a sustainable waste management approach for the entire life cycle through a further increase in waste recycling, improved waste treatment and recovery capacity in the Group's power plants, technological innovation and the promotion of responsible behaviour to minimize the use of landfills and protect the environment and human health


Some 2030 targets

  • 70% sorted waste collection to be achieved in the municipalities served
  • 99% urban waste collected sent for recovery of material or energy
  • Capacity of recovery of material in plants owned by the Group at least equivalent to the total of municipal waste collected separately

Sustainability plan 2019-2023
