Activities carried out to reduce the direct and indirect production of GHG
Within its Organization, Ansaldo STS has appointed a Carbon Manager, an Energy Manager and a Water Manager responsible for providing information and carrying out activities and projects with respect to energy savings at all company operating sites.
Ansaldo STS’s initiatives to improve employee travel include optimizing travel paths, using carpooling and car sharing and promoting the use of public transportation and more sustainable means through its travel policy.
- an assessment of the impact of products, in terms of emissions over their entire life cycle;
- economic/environmental analyses in relation to current regulations on emission reduction to determine assets’ potential value-at-risk;
- the measurement of the effectiveness of emission reduction projects;
- communication on Ansaldo STS’s emission reduction performance to the concerned parties, media, investors, rating agencies and other organizations.
The effect of the travel policy can be measured with the reduction of total km travelled over the threeyear period 2014-2016 (-13%) and, more specifically with regard to 2015, with the reduction of those covered by long-haul flights (-13%) and by road trips (-8%).
In the last three years (2014-2016), direct and indirect production of greenhouse gas has gone from 19,371.7 tCO2e a 18,409.7 tCO2e, recording an overall reduction of 962.1 tCO2e (-5.0%).
The following chart shows the trend of GHG Emission Intensity, which measures the tons of GHG emissions compared to € millions of turnover.
