Activities carried out to reduce the direct and indirect production of GHG
Within its organisation, 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 optimising travel paths, using carpooling and car sharing and promoting the use of public transportation and more sustainable means through its travel policy.
One of the effects of the travel policy can be measured by the considerable reduction in long-haul air travel.
In the last three years, Co2 production has gone from 19,272 tonnes in 2013 to 17,546.1 tonnes in 2015, recording an overall reduction of 1,725.9 tonnes (-9%).
The following chart shows the trend of GHG Emission Intensity, which measures the tonnes of GHG emissions by each €1 million of turnover.
GHG Emission Intesity Total e Scope I, II, e III
(tCO2e/mln di fatturato)
GHG Emission Intensity (direct and indirect) KPI shows a 8.3% reduction from 2014 to 2015, from 14.68 tonnes of CO2 by each €1 million of turnover recorded in 2014 to 13,46 tonnes recorded in 2015. Such result is due to above mentioned emissions decrease and an increase in the turnover. The reduction is even greater if compared to 2013 (-14.1%).
The same consideration applies to each single Scope considered in the GHG Emission Intensity calculation:
- Scope I emissions (direct combustion of fossil fuels from the organisation’s sources) reduced by 24.3%;
- Scope II emissions (electrical energy used by the organisation) reduced by 4%;
- Scope III emissions (from sources not owned by the organisation, related to the transport of people and goods, consumption of raw materials and waste disposal) reduced by 7%.
