The Poste Italiane Group, which is deployed nationwide, recognises its responsibility to play a distinctive role in creating sustainable value for the communities in which it operates, where the environmental dimension is of primary importance. The rational use of natural resources in compliance with ethical principles and social responsibility, and the focus on finding innovative environmental protection solutions, are the priorities the Poste Italiane Group has defined in its Code of Ethics, which sets out the fundamental principles that inspire us to achieve the best environmental performance.
In the light of technological developments, increasing innovation and constant regulatory changes in the postal sector, Poste Italiane intends to increasingly focus on continually renewing its fleet with more environmentally friendly vehicles, rationalising distances travelled, proper waste management, developing infrastructure for recharging customers’ vehicles, and to demand that external transport providers meet minimum environmental requirements. In line with the Company’s approach to give priority to the efficient use of renewables and the rationalisation of energy consumption from fossil fuels, in 2018 the two main corporate strategies that brought benefits in terms of environmental sustainability were the new “Joint Delivery” model and the plan relating to the green development of the corporate fleet.
 
  • Join delivery: Poste Italiane has decided to radically overhaul its delivery network and operating model through implementation of the new delivery model, which provides for a transition from a single network (operating only in the morning from Monday to Friday) to a structure with two networks that differ in terms of delivery methods and type of product;
 
  • Green fleet: the Group’s strong commitment to improving its environmental performance may be traced back to the introduction in the 2000s of 4-wheel vehicles powered by natural gas, which affected 15% of the fleet, followed by the introduction of the “Free Duck” (electric quadricycles) and the full rent supply of 4-wheel vehicles powered by alternative fuels (cars and vans powered by natural gas, LPG/hybrid cars and electric vans).
