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 chosen for the 2018 edition is "Hazardous Waste Prevention”, those wastes containing harmful elements for the health of people and for the protection of the environment and animals.
In Intesa Sanpaolo, the production of hazardous waste is residual and limited to some electronic waste. The attention and commitment to the production of special, dangerous and non-hazardous waste has allowed in 2017 a reduction of the total quantity of 9.4% compared to 2016. In general, 94.8% of waste is valued through recycling or reuse/recovery, only 3.6% of waste is disposed of in landfills and 1.6% is destined to incinerate with energy recovery. The Group's commitment to sustainable waste management is reported in the Consolidated Non-financial Statement.
During the week a meeting was organized on the topic open to colleagues, with the presentation of a best practice, and the initiative was disseminated through the Bank's communication tools (messages on ATM videos, sustainability section of the website and social channels).
