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 Italy Intesa Sanpaolo adopted an Environmental Management System (in accordance with UNI EN ISO 14001) 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). This System, implemented in more than 220 sites located throughout Italy, is representative of all the Group's banks and provides a series of internal procedures and working practices which allow to manage the direct impacts generated by banking activities in a view to continuous improvement. With the extension of the certification perimeter to a further 25 operating units in 2017, each Bank of the Banca dei Territori Division of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group is represented in the Management System through a variable number of operating units (over 220) which - in their complex - by type of system, climate zone of belonging, size and organizational characteristics ensure the significance of the sample. Moreeovere, the new Turin Centro Direzionale is also included in the scope of reference, also chosen as the coordinating seat of the System. The skyscraper is equipped with the most advanced technological and engineering solutions and is considered one of the high-rise buildings more environmentally friendly in the world as attested by the international LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum. On the same sample of operating units Intesa Sanpaolo monitors and measures with specific activities and regular checks the performance obtained and its correspondence with the expectations. The Management System also provides a specialised training program for the employees working in the sites included in the scope.
By carrying out annual audits in the headquarters and a substantial number of operating units, the international third body DNV GL certifies the effectiveness of procedures and operational practices and issues certification in accordance with the relevant ISO standards. With regard to the International Subsidiary Banks, the first Subsidiary to have implemented an Energy Management System (pursuant to the UNI CEI EN ISO 50001 standard) is the Hungarian CIB Bank which renewed at the end of 2017 the certification of its properties (83) and services also thanks to the installation of data loggers in some branches, improving the management of data centers and replacing old systems with energy efficient systems. Efficiency also involved the office machines through the purchase of more advanced models and the disposal of about 700 equipment donated to the Order of Malta.
