Carbon Footprint project

Autostrade per l'Italia and the Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea entered into a voluntary agreement for 'carbon footprinting' projects on 20 December 2011. Project activities aim to measure the carbon footprint, i.e. the greenhouse gases emitted during production processes, carry out the analysis and accounting thereof and ultimately define a carbon management system aimed at identifying and implementing those economically efficient interventions that use low carbon content technologies. The agreement also envisages ministerial validation of the carbon footprint. These are the first carbon footprinting agreements entered into in Italy.
In 2010, Autostrade per l'Italia was awarded the Best Carbon Reduction Company Italy award, a prestigious recognition for companies that have reached levels of excellence in the reduction of carbon dioxide and in the development of technologies and services with great positive impact on the environment.
