The environmental impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions by  Telecom Italia and the Group consists almost exclusively of carbon dioxide determined,  by direct emissions from the use of fossil fuels, indirect emissions through the procurement of electricity and other indirect emissions due for example to home-work commuting and air travel by staff.

In accordance with the energy policy adopted, in order to reduce its own emissions, the Group continues to take action in the following areas:

  • seeking energy saving opportunities, i.e. recovering energy without structural changes but through organic action - e.g. temperature alignment and redefinition of Group policies, improving the efficiency of existing cogeneration plants and energy stations, recalibration of set-points in multi-system sites, cogeneration refrigeration systems, free cooling, disconnection of obsolete equipment;
  • technological upgrading and distributed generation work, with investments aimed at achieving "less use at a lower cost", including free cooling technologies, prioritising air conditioning, lighting of offices and industrial sites, as well as trigeneration plants (including micro plants), geothermal and other renewable sources;
  • work on organization and energy engagement to identify the "enabling factors" for the purpose of achieving energy savings, defining roles aimed at guiding the implementation of initiatives to disseminate the results achieved at all levels and promoting an energy-saving culture in the company.
