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

Sustainability plan 2018-2022


Azione KPI 2016 2017 Objective
New 2022 objective

Percentage of separate waste collection in the municipalities served (apart from Milan)

60% 70% 67% 71%
Percentage of separate waste collection in the city of Milan 52% 54% 60%
Material recovery capacity at the Group's plants out of total municipal waste subject to sorted collection 84% 82% 80% 100%


To implement actions aimed at reducing water consumption in the collection and distribution processes, so as to improve water quality and reduce water dispersion

Percentage of equivalent inhabitants served by the purification service with respect to total equivalent inhabitants not served in 2016 (142,904 E.I.) - 1% 60%
