A monitored and certified process - Intesa Sanpaolo
A monitored and certified process
With the aim of responsibly managing the environmental and energy impacts related to its business, Intesa Sanpaolo Group has launched a process of monitoring its environmental and energy impacts, knowing that only after having analysed real consumption data it is possible to initiate actions for optimization and energy efficiency with long-lasting results and constant improvements.
Thanks to these monitoring actions, consistent with its Environmental and Energy Policy, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group could acquire important environmental certifications.
In 2007, Intesa Sanpaolo adopted an Environmental Management System (in accordance with UNI EN ISO 14001: 2004) and, as of June 2010, became the first Italian bank to integrate it with an Energy Management System (certified since April 2012 UNI CEI EN ISO 50001:2011). This System is at present certified by an external body in approximately 200 sites located in Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Trentino Alto Adige, Puglia and Sardinia.
The two systems are perfectly integrated, since the structure of the reference standards is very similar: both provides for the adoption of an Environmental and Energy Policy, a periodic management Review, specific planning and evaluation activities and interventions. Both standards specify the requirements that enable an organisation (that freely chooses to be certified) to develop, maintain and implement policies and procedures with the aim of managing significant aspects of its activities; the organisation must also demonstrate to stakeholders that such policies, procedures and practices are implemented in accordance with the requirements of the standards.
The certified branches and buildings represent a geographically significant sample through which the Bank monitors and measures its performances. Progressive improvement measures are flanked by specific training for the employees responsible of the System at the certified sites. The Environmental and Energy Management System aims at gradual improvement and in this regard is expected to be progressively extended to other Italian areas.
The System is certified by DNV.
