Our environmental and energy policy
We are firmly committed to combining the respect and safeguard of the environment.
Our environmental and energy policy is inspired by the following principles:
- extensive compliance with regulatory requirements;
- ongoing commitment to improving environmental and energy performance;
- education and engagement of all actors involved in the airport system for a responsible commitment to respecting and protecting the environment as our common heritage;
- priority given to the purchase of products and services that adopt similar environmental sustainability parameters, with particular attention to energy conservation, reduction of atmospheric and noise emissions and water usage;
- identification of sources and controls of CO2 emissions produced, both direct and indirect, through the involvement of stakeholders, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in line with Kyoto protocol and subsequent international agreements;
- a constant level of monitoring and verification of processes related to energy, atmospheric emission, noise and water cycle and in general various phenomena concerning interaction with the ecosystem;
- highly developed system of listening and communication with a wide range of external actors to ensure transparency and sharing.
Our commitment to reducing environmental impact makes it increasingly necessary to integrate key environmental management issues into business strategies and management.
To that effect, the Environment and Airport Safety function holds monthly committees to provide the stakeholders involved in the aviation activities of our airports with the information regarding operational safety and environment and, on the external front, it ensures an adequate relationship with local and institutional bodies.
The guidelines and tools for managing our environmental and energy policies are periodically subjected to internal and external audits, thus spreading our effort towards our stakeholders through detailed reporting on environmental and energy processes of our airports.
