Environmental impacts of real estate facilities The Company’s approach to environmental sustainability is inspired by these principles: efficient use of natural resources; innovation to support a low-carbon economy; prevention and reduction of environmental impact.

The Company’s approach to environmental sustainability is inspired by these principles: efficient use of natural resources; innovation to support a low-carbon economy; prevention and reduction of environmental impact, through analysis of potential environmental risks, reduction in the amount of waste produced and the elimination of waste; and promotion of an environmental culture, through the Company’s corporate voluntary network and collaboration with environmental associations Specifically, the Group’s environmental priorities include:
 
  • Reduction of the environmental impact of its operating activities: optimisation of energy consumption, reduction of atmospheric emissions from buildings and those linked to logistical activities and staff mobility, reduction of material consumption, and correct waste management and reduction of water consumption;
 
  • Incorporation of environmental aspects into the products and services offered: implementation of digitisation processes regarding the goods and services offered, and assessment of environmental risks and opportunities relating to investment choices and the management of insurance activities;
 
  • Raising the awareness of employees and third parties regarding the environmental culture: involvement of employees in programmes and initiatives aimed at safeguarding the natural environment and ecology, support for environmental heritage protection and recovery initiatives, dialogue and collaboration with national and international bodies and associations in order to combat climate change and inefficient consumption of resources, and assessment of risks and environmental management methods adopted by counterparties.
 
The Group has adopted a Management System in compliance with current legislation and national and international best practices. Postel SpA e SDA SpA have obtained UNI EN ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management system. The system consists of internal environmental management rules that are implemented to ensure punctual identification of the most significant environmental impacts and adoption of the most effective management and mitigation measures, through a structured performance monitoring system involving audits and periodic checks.
In 2018, the energy use optimisation plan continued, including introduction of initiatives aimed at reducing waste by installing and activating energy consumption meters  that enable monitoring of trends, analysis of consumption, taking measurements at the most energy-intensive sites, and correctly setting temperatures and operating times for cooling and heating systems. In this regard, Poste Italiane has already planned an energy management system for 2019, which will be gradually extended to the entire Group.

In 2019, Poste Italiane undertook to launch multi-year projects aimed at reducing the environmental impact of properties and the use of non-renewable sources.
  • in order to promote renewable energy sources, Poste Italiane has focused on the distribution of integrated photovoltaic systems in buildings, thereby creating infrastructure aimed at reducing dependence on fossil fuels;
  • Smart building: minimise the environmental impacts of the Group’s buildings with regard to energy use, water consumption, waste and consumption of raw materials, through implementation of specific measures that strictly depend on preventive analysis and constant monitoring systems;
  • Energy efficiencies at Sorting Centres (CMP), through an update of the BMS (Building Management System) installed on the CMPs was implemented and Dashboards were developed to analyse consumption and performance available to the headquarters and the territory;
  • Poste Italiane invested particularly in the area of smart technologies, focusing on the gradual installation of LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting.
