Sustainability

Operating with a competitive edge in the long term while championing social, environmental and economic values.

We have believed in the importance of sustainability for over one hundred years; it is our way of generating and distributing value in a lasting and independent way, attuned to reconciling the needs of those with whom we interact every day: customers, suppliers, associations, policymakers.

The experience of a grand past, the challenge of a continually changing future. Together.

The Sustainability, the ESG themes and the UN 2030 Agenda, in particular, are the foundation of our new Strategic Plan 2021-2030. A Plan that looks at 2030 as a key year and puts on paper the contribution that A2A is committed to giving to 11 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

These are not words, but concrete projects, included in a 10-years investment plan of over 16 billion, with projects 90% aligned with the SDGs of the UN Agenda.

It will be our "decade of action" to make the energy transition and the circular economy a reality.

And for us - who are a Life Company, who take care of people’s lives, and who work every day to improve their quality - it becomes essential to do our part to give the world another chance, to give future generations a world of respect for the environment and people, of equality, of inclusive development, that leaves no one behind.

Our sustainability Strategy

Discover our vision of Sustainability, in this section that wants to be a meeting place between our Group and all our stakeholders.
In this section, you will know - year by year - how we take care of and respond to the needs of our communities, thanks to a navigation designed to accompany you to discover the world of sustainability of A2A through three dimensions:

  • Material issues, which describe how we care for the communities in which we operate
  • The 11 SDGs of the 2030 Agenda are based on the new A2A Strategic Plan
  • The pillars (Circular Economy and Energy Transition) and enabling factors (Digital, Governance and People Innovation) of A2A’s new 10-year Strategy to see what our objectives are between now and 2030 and our contribution to the sustainable development of the country

These dimensions are completed by an external frame, where you can find:

Integrated report

The Integrated Report is a very important annual appointment, which allows us to get in touch with our stakeholders, analyze and tell the commitment and attention we devote to issues related to economic, environmental and social sustainability. The document is prepared according to the GRI Standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and, for some indicators, it follows the GRI G4 Electric Utilities Sector Supplement. The Integrated Report also refers to the Integrated Reporting Framework (IR Framework), outlined by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). Adherence to the principles of the Integrated Report also allows us to illustrate the process by which we create value over time, through the analysis of the capitals that influence and are influenced by the activities of the Group.

This year, for the first time, the document is also aligned with the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Sustainable Finance

Following its first Green Financing Framework published in July 2019, A2A has structured a new Sustainable Financing Framework in May 2021. The Sustainable Finance Framework is fully aligned with ICMA and LMA’s latest principles and it combines both Green/Use of Proceeds and Sustainability-Linked approaches.

Regarding the new Sustainability-Linked component, a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) has been selected in order to fully reflect the two pillars of A2A’s strategic plan, namely Energy Transition and Circular Economy. The selected KPIs ( Scope 1 CO2 Emission Intensity; Renewable Energy Capacity Installation; Waste Treated in Group’s Material Recovery Plants) are linked to ESG targets that actively contribute to the achievement of UN SDGs number 7, 11, 12, and 13.

A2A strongly believes that all types of sustainable finance instruments can promote the transition toward a low-carbon economy through (i) the direct financing of green projects and (ii) the long-term commitment toward ambitious sustainability performance targets.

Our stakeholder

A relationship based on listening, continuous dialogue and the active involvement of stakeholders is not only a form of responsibility of the Group towards the context in which it operates, but also a source of valuable information, ideas and ideas to understand the needs of the territories and respond effectively, promoting local development and anticipating any critical issues.

A2A for its local communities

We have, since 2015, published the Local Sustainability Reports, to tell our story, and to allow everyone in the community to see and understand the Group's efforts, and its successes, in the communities where it conducts its business. Moreover, beginning in 2017, these documents include a description of the efforts made toward reaching the UN’s sustainable-development goals, tailored to the needs of each community.
