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 the first edition we drew up, together with Legambiente, a dedicated handbook "In the Office and at home: - Waste and + Recycling" (PDF - 970 Kb Italian version) and in 2013, with the involvement of our colleagues, who offered advice and suggested best practices on the subject of waste reduction, re-use and recycling at home, the pamphlet "Rifiutilizzare #Obiettivo: Rifiuti Zero" (PDF - 242 Kb Italian version). In 2014 we published on line the leaflet "Stop food waste" (PDF - 595 Kb Italian version), produced in collaboration with Slow Food Italia which gives basic tips to combat food waste and some general information that can help to raise public awareness. 27 countries participated with 12,000 virtuous actions, of which more than 5,600 presented by Italy (European record for the fourth consecutive year).
The theme chosen for the 2015 edition by the promoting committee is the dematerialisation, that is particularly important for our bank, which for many years has been promoting initiatives to reduce paper use and to encourage the computerization of processes: from Reporting on line and digital signature to the dematerialisation of contracts undertaken in recent months. 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 and using IT tools alternative to paper.
