Biodiversity

There are two Ansaldo STS sites in proximity of protected areas:

  • Les Ulis (France) – total area 20,000 m2 (40% offices, 30% streets and parking lots, 30% green areas) where administrative and sales activities, as well as tests on electronic systems are carried out. The site is certified accorded to ISO 14001 and is close to the Bois del Gellesche which extends for 16 hectares.
  • Tito Scalo (Pz) – total area 40,000 m2 (21% plants, warehouses and offices, 19% streets and parking lots, 60% green areas) where activities of manual and automated welding, as well as painting of circuit boards, are carried out. The site is certified according to ISO 14001 and is EMAS registered. It is less than 3 km from the lake of Pantano, Regional Natural Reserve and Oasis of WWF. Pantano di Pignola is located in a Site of Community Importance and in a Special Protection Area (SIC-ZPS IT9210142), in the municipality of Pignola (Pz). It is also RAMSAR Area (Convention on Wetlands of International Importance). Due to the insignificant activity of the site with respect to biodiversity, the only biodiversity indicator considered by the EMAS is the number of employees compared to surface area.

 

International Environment Day

Ansaldo STS participates to the International Environment Day, established in 1972 by the United Nations General Assembly, to promote positive global actions to preserve the environment. The initiative aims to raise awareness of the concept of "green economy" and represents one of the opportunities to invite everyone to actively contribute to the environment protection and to the sustainable use of natural resources.
