Since 2008 the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, in accordance with the provisions of the Legislative Decree 152/2006, has adopted specific Waste Management Operational Guidelines which divide waste into:
special waste, divided into hazardous (mainly attributable to building maintenance and renovation that are produced and managed by contractors) and non-hazardous (i.e. paper with sensitive data, non-recyclable plastic materials, glass materials, etc.).
Urban-type waste (waste bin paper, glass, plastic, etc., namely waste that may be disposed of through municipal separated collection) must be delivered to the public waste collection service in accordance with the handling conditions specified by local regulations.
On the other hand, handling of special waste is entrusted to outside companies operating in the area that, directly or indirectly, meet the requirements for transporting and/or disposing of waste (registration in the National Roll of Environmental Managers) and use specifically authorised vehicles.
In 2016 new Operational Guidelines were issued, which provide guidance for the collection of materials, commonly used in our business units, that do not fit into the above categories (office machines, various equipment, etc.).
Since 2012 we've been adhering to the "European Week for Waste Reduction", with several communication initiatives addressed to both our colleagues and our customers.
The commitment to raising awareness about the importance of fighting waste and reducing, reusing and recycling garbage has led to the implementation of a specific course for all our colleagues, "Waste Management in Intesa Sanpaolo: a comprehensive guide”. Through an interactive map, colleagues can find useful information for adequate waste management and reflect on their daily behaviour at home and in the office.
In addition, brochures on the topics proposed by EWWR have been published:
the leaflet "Stop food waste" (PDF - 595 Kb Italian version), produced in collaboration with Slow Food Italia
The theme of 2017 is " Reuse and repair: Give it a new life!", an invitation to shift from a throw-away attitude towards more appreciation for products and the resources used. Intesa Sanpaolo wants to contribute to this important change of perspective and since long has been interested in supporting the transition to the new paradigm of the Circular Economy, which aims to redefine products and services in order to avoid waste, pollution through a rapid transition towards renewable energy sources and the use of bio-based materials.
During the Week, a meeting on this topic has been organised, with the presentation of a best practice. The communication activity involved also our customers, who were invited, through a message on ATM/MTA screen and the receipts for each transaction, to join the European Week for Waste Reduction with concrete actions aimed at reducing waste.
For the wide range of the initiatives carried out Intesa Sanpaolo is considered one of the "great Action Developer" supporting the EWWR Read more (Italian version)
