Our sustainability Initiatives

Health and safety at work

BBS project

The BBS (Behavior Based Safety) project was carried out at the construction sites of the Giovi Tunnel Consortium (High Speed Milan-Genoa) starting from February 2022. It involved all the operational staff employed by the Pizzarotti-led Consortium through training courses, field checks, and meetings to share results and plan objectives and feedbacks.
The results are very encouraging: in December 2022, behavioral compliance stood at 93%, continuously growing compared to previous months. Because of the positive start of the process, the safety indexes (expressed in terms of frequency of accidents) improved in the Castagnola construction site while they remained almost unchanged in Cravasco. The BBS project, whose effectiveness has proven to be more significant after 2 years of application based on studies conducted on previous experiences, will continue until the conclusion of operational activities.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY PLAN

Corporate

In 2022 we defined an energy efficiency plan indicating the main interventions, including smart metering and relamping, for the Parma headquarters and the Ponte Taro prefabrication plant.

Suppliers evaluation

We have started a project to review the supplier evaluation process on Social Responsibility (ESG) issues, which, based on the performances recorded during 2022, will allow a significant improvement in terms of reliability and objectivity of the data. We have invested in Bureau Van Dijk’s Orbis platform to have an external evaluation of our suppliers. Furthermore, for the due diligence activity towards the qualified suppliers with whom we establish commercial relationships, we have chosen to use Bureau Van Dijk’s Catalyst platform. We have also integrated the supplier qualification and evaluation process on ESG with the solutions provided by third parties (EcoVadis and Open-es).

Purchase of sustainability credits

In 2022 we purchased 600 sustainability credits made available by the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines National Park Authority to offset the emissions of 600 equivalent tons of CO2 produced by the Group. These credits finance projects for the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines Biosphere Reserve, recognized by UNESCO in 2015, which is today the largest in Italy and extends over 80 municipalities in the provinces of Modena, Reggio Emilia, Parma, Lucca, Massa Carrara and La Spezia. This initiative contributes to the sustainable development goals of the UN Agenda 2030 and to the fight against the climate crisis, thanks to the compensation of climate-altering gas emissions. Furthermore, it provides support to a local project, improving forest ecosystems and aligning to the Social Responsibility strategy of the Pizzarotti Group.

Safety day

Scheduled for May 15, 2024, is the first “Pizzarotti Safety Day.” An event of fundamental importance whose primary objective is to promote and incentivize health and safety culture, collaboration among colleagues, attention and prevention, training and information, safety as an ethical right and duty, collaboration and involvement, and shared choice.

Company mobility plan

The company mobility plan includes various objectives, such as training and awareness programs, covered parking areas for bicycles, application of smart working, grants for the purchase of public transport season tickets, agreements for sharing services for scooters, company car fleet renewal, in order to encourage more sustainable mobility.
