Rationalisation of consumption and greater awareness of efficient use of energy resources are the key considerations for the future of our planet.
Combining economic development and environmental protection currently represents a pressing problem which calls for responsible behaviour from everyone, governments through to individuals. Efforts must be aimed at rationalising consumption, also in the context of energy efficiency, and reducing waste, by adopting eco-compatible policies and conduct.
AlmavivA has decided to turn this into a strategic objective for the Group: to become a green company.
Putting into practice conduct models, organisational action and management of plants and logistics to reduce consumption and the environmental and energy-related impact of corporate activities.
Promote an approach aimed at the efficient use of information technology to reduce resource consumption and maximise the energy efficiency of the offered services and products over the course of their entire life-cycle.
Enhancing and developing AlmavivA's experience, skills and technologies to innovate the company's commercial offering in the environmental and energy field.
To ensure the prevention and containment of the environmental and energy-related impact deriving from operations, AlmavivA has developed and applied an Environmental Management System and an Energy Management System, in compliance with the UNI EN ISO 14001 and UN ISO 50001 standards. These plan and systematise eco-friendly behaviour and efficient use of IT at the Group level, and all staff, suppliers and other interested parties are actively invited to implement them.
For the path of change, which impacts on all company components, a completely original path was chosen, which allowed to enhance the common commitment of the Company and the Syndicate in a mixed and transversal Green Team, with representatives from all areas of the organization.
Because of the project’s novel features, AlmavivA Green has been recognized with a series of awards since 2014: Legambiente, the most authoritative environmental organization in Italy, selected it as one of the best national organization; Silver medal “Good HR practices”, the Italian Personnel Directors Association award; National Champion at the European Business Awards, the most prestigious independent Business Competition in Europe. In the same year, AlmavivA’s SEM Smart Energy Management® won the “Solar Decathlon” with RhOME, the World Cup of green architecture.
One of the initiatives dearest to AlmavivA’s heart was launched in 2019 with the planting of a small forest in Guatemala’s Peten region as part of a high social impact reforestation project. An idea to be developed over time, as are all the company’s social and energy-environmental initiatives There are five thousand trees, fitted with a tracking system through a unique code that allows their growth to be monitored remotely in real time. Each tree has been entrusted to an AlmavivA person who has become its ideal caretaker.
But what do 5 thousand trees look like? Find out by watching the video on the AlmavivA project with partner ZeroCO2.
