In 2019 A2A worked also hard to raise awareness among its customers and the communities in which it operates on responsible and sustainable consumption.
In 2019, in addition to new products and commercial services (eg Più fotovoltaico, Energy Check-up), the commitment also materialized:
GWh of green energy sold
million euro of contributions to the community
aluminum water bottles given to students
of first grade secondary schools in Milan and Brescia, and to freshmen of the University of Brescia
people supported by the projects of the first “Doniamo Energia” call for proposals
A2A is investing significantly in involving and raising the awareness of the new generations on issues relating to environmental education, with the aim of encouraging the growth of ecological awareness and encouraging conscious behaviour in the service of improving the quality of life in the territories. This has led to a number of initiatives and activities, aimed in particular at the world of school: lessons in class, guided tours of the facilities, seminars for teachers, competitions and educational exhibitions.
Among the new features for 2019, scuole.a2a.eu, the new portal aimed at teachers, which recounts all the free initiatives dedicated by A2A to schools, reaching all the areas where the Group operates in a more effective and widespread manner. On the portal, the teacher can select the initiatives of interest, choosing them according to the theme and the school degree of reference. Additional advantages are available by registering: book free guided tours to about 50 facilities, educational-museum venues and other routes, participate in exclusive live streaming webinars in the edutv.a2a.eu section with the possibility to interact with the speaker through chat, register your classes in a national merit contest, receive a dedicated newsletter. On the school portal, there are also tools that accompany the teacher in class teaching: in addition to free downloadable publications, short videos and other digital formats suitable for different age groups and usable with interactive whiteboards (in 2019, over 700 teachers signed up with the portal).
As for guided tours, in 2019, participation grew further (+16%), with 39,000 visitors, of whom 31,374 were students. Casa dell’Energia e dell’Ambiente in Milan remains the most visited site, with 7,000 entries recorded.
