Actions

  • Alignment of greenhouse gas emission reduction targets with the Paris Agreement Cop 21: -46% of our direct greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1) per kWh produced by 2030, compared to 2017
  • Started the decarbonization process for the Brescia’s environmental energy system
  • Realization by the ESCo Group companies of interventions on the plants, which will positively affect the reduction of CO2 emissions (e.g. installation of photovoltaic panels)
  • The district heating service promoted by the Group allowed to avoid, in 2019, 213,000 tonnes of CO2
  • A2A is also committed to zero Scope 2 emissions by 2024 
  • Agreement with Talesun Group to develop new photovoltaic project for a total capacity of 1 GW
