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). The certification perimeter has expanded over the years to include – starting with the 2019 renewal check that will end in the autumn – all branches and Palazzi d'Italia. The sites are subjected to a constant process of monitoring of environmental and energy performance and to cycles of internal audits carried out with the aim of assessing the degree of adherence to the practices adopted compared to what is expected; corrective actions are implemented when necessary to bring performance back within a defined range. The Management System also provides a specialized training course for all employees involved. Annually, the headquarters and a fair number of subsidiaries and buildings are affected by the verification of maintenance or renewal of certification by the third international body DNV GL. The Headquarters of the coordination of the system is the New Directional Centre in Turin, a building equipped with the most advanced technological and plant solutions, considered one of the most eco-friendly buildings in the world, as attested by the highest (Platinum) of the international LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
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 2018 the certification of its properties (81) 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.
