For Poste Italiane, environmental protection is a non-negotiable aspect when creating sustainable value. With this perspective, the Group follows this commitment in the communities in which it works, as governed in the Group’s Code of Ethics, through knowledgeable use of resources and innovative solutions that allow it to minimise negative environmental impacts.
The Company’s objective is to spread an environmental protection culture, whilst systematically drawing up sectoral action plans regarding the efficient management of energy resources, water resources and waste, from a circular economy perspective, in order to reduce its ecological footprint.

  • Total Direct GHG emissions – Scope 1. In 2021 Poste Italiane generated 165,508 tCO2e of direct GHG emissions.
  • Total Indirect GHG emissions - Scope 2. Total indirect GHG emissions have been reduced by about 45% over the past three years. Specifically, the Group in 2021 generated indirect GHG emissions of 5,709 tCO2e (market-based methodology | compared to an established target of 6,500 tCO2e); these emissions, calculated through the location-based methodology, were 142,966 tCO2e (compared to an established target of 145,500 tCO2e).
  • Total other indirect GHG emissions – Scope 3. This category reflects the total other indirect emissions generated by the Group's value chain. In this regard, 178,737 tCO2e were generated in 2021. Specifically, with reference to business travel, total emissions were 8,700 tCO2e (compared to a target set for 2021 of 9,200 tCO2e).
