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.).

In 2016 the focus was on the reduction of the impact of packaging and how everyone can contribute, through the reduction, reuse and proper recycling. Intesa Sanpaolo supported the initiative by promoting a course on the subject: "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.
The communication activity involved also our customers, who were invited, through a message on the screen and on 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 cosidered one of the "great Action Developer" supporting the EWWR. Read more (Italian version)
