Environmental risk management and penalties

Business environmental management as carried out by A2A means in actual terms the prevention of the environmental, economic and financial risks arising from the possibility that laws and regulations are not being complied with, that consent is not obtained from local communities, that there may be claims for compensation or that assets may lose value.
To cover any residual risk A2A has taken out specific insurance against any damage that may arise from accidental and gradual pollution connected with the ownership and/or use of plants. Coverage also includes any harm that may be done to protected natural species and habitats and any reclamation costs inside and outside the factory buildings.
A2A received no fines or non-monetary sanctions in 2011 for failure to comply with environmental laws and regulations, with the exception of a small number of proceedings regarding formal or economic questions, some of which have been completed with a favourable outcome for the A2A Group.
