A long-term strategy (measure, reduce, compensate), scientifically based and transparent: this is the path we have chosen to achieve Carbon Neutrality, the zeroing of C02 emissions, and thus make a significant contribution to curbing the rise in global temperature.
In 2020, for the first time, we calculated our carbon footprint (scope 1, scope 2 and scope 3) following two standards, the GHG Protocol and the UNI EN ISO 14064-1:2019 Standard for quantifying and reporting greenhouse gas emissions. The application of these two tools makes it possible to monitor GHG emissions related to the company's activities every year, following a transparent methodology.
By 2021, we have reduced emissions by at least 40 per cent by purchasing 100 per cent electricity from renewable sources with a guarantee of origin. In addition, we committed to obtaining validation of our targets by the international network Science Based Target initiative (SBTi).
In 2020, we achieved full carbon offsetting through the purchase of carbon credits. Three projects have been chosen to offset greenhouse gas emissions, all certified with UN-recognised standards, Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Standard: the construction of a wind farm in Turkey, the construction of a new hydroelectric power plant in India, and the REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) initiative, which supports forest conservation in Africa.
