  • COMMITMENTS UNDERTAKEN IN 2016 ACTIVITIES CARRIED OUT IN 2017
    ENERGY
    Reduce energy consumption performance indicator of buildings /offices by 5% [GJ/m2]. The energy consumption index for Company offices has fallen to 11.7% due to the reduced consumption of EE, methane and district heating.
    Reduce the energy consumption performance indicator of buildings /production sites by 1% [GJ/m2]. The energy consumption index for production sites has risen by 13.6% due in particular to the increase in consumption of EE.
    Increase the percentage of electrical energy obtained from renewable sources by 5%. The objective has not been achieved due to the lower weight of Italian energy consumption certified by renewable sources at global level.
  • COMMITMENTS UNDERTAKEN IN 2016 ACTIVITIES CARRIED OUT IN 2017
    GREENHOUSE GASES
    Reduce the GHG emission intensity indicator by 10% [tCO2e/EUR million revenues]. The objective was partially achieved. The GHG emission intensity indicator was reduced by 6.7%.
  • COMMITMENTS UNDERTAKEN IN 2016 ACTIVITIES CARRIED OUT IN 2017
    WASTE
    Reduce the weight of waste per hour worked at production sites by 5%.
    Reduce the weight of waste per hour worked at offices by 5%.
    The Kg data per hour worked is not available by offices and production sites. Overall, there was a 48% reduction in kg of waste per hour worked due to the significant decrease in non-hazardous waste and the increase in hours worked.
    Increase the percentage of recycled waste at production sites by 10%. At the production sites there was a 71.7% increase in the percentage of waste recovered.
    Increase the percentage of recycled waste at offices by 10%. In the offices there was an increase of 11.4% in the percentage of recovered waste.
  • COMMITMENTS UNDERTAKEN IN 2016 ACTIVITIES CARRIED OUT IN 2017
    WORKERS’ SAFETY
    Reduce the injury frequency and severity indicators at production sites by 10%.
    Reduce the injury frequency and severity indicators at offices by 10%.
    With the use of the new Intelex software - Health and Safety and the Integrated Management System - data on the frequency and severity of injuries will no longer be divided between production sites and offices. The overall objective was not achieved because the low starting values of the frequency and severity indices of the injuries of Ansaldo STS make them particularly sensitive to slight variations in the number of accidents.
    HSE TOOL
    Implement a tool for managing and monitoring HSE activities. The Intelex (Health and Safety an Integrated Management System) software was implemented. The software makes it easy to manage, track and report on HS data.
    HSE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
    Update the HSE management systems according to new standard ISO14001:2015, in line with new ISO9001:2015. The transition of HSE management systems according to the ISO 14001: 2015 standard has almost come to an end; by August 2018 the transition phase will be completed.
  • COMMITMENTS UNDERTAKEN IN 2016 ACTIVITIES CARRIED OUT IN 2017
    HSE BEST PRACTICE
    Increase the sharing of HSE operating control best practices. Publication of best practices on the company intranet.
    Pilot projects on best operational practices (eg emergency simulation with VVFF intervention) participation in meetings, conferences and prizes.
