We have great projects planned for the planet too
The respect for the environment, national and international regulations and the constant pursuit of the lowest impact of our production activities form the basis of Pietro Fiorentini’s commitment to achieving sustainable growth, which does not harm the world we live in.
Because we have a myriad of opportunities to create our future, yet only one planet on which to live it.
Aware of the centrality of the energy system in the path to reach the goal of carbon neutrality, Pietro Fiorentini has structured its business model coherently with the “three D” – Decarbonization, Decentralization and Digitalization – by expanding its offer of technological solutions for the renewable energy sector. More in detail, Pietro Fiorentini’s commitment to energy transition is embodied into the development of new solutions for power-to-gas, hydrogen and biomethane, in growing investments related to the digitalization of energy networks and in the definition of a coherent M&A strategy.
In line with Agile principles, the Company has created two cross-sectoral working groups to explore new businesses related to the world of renewable energies: Green Gas Value Chain and Green Gas Network. The first working group aims to consolidate Pietro Fiorentini’s positioning in the production and efficient use of the new sustainable energy sources, to extend the value chain outside the perimeter of the natural gas infrastructure. The second group deals with the strengthening and efficiency enhancement of networks.
Innovation is part of the DNA of the Group. In any area of expertise, Pietro Fiorentini is constantly committed to promote and implement sustainable and innovative solutions. In particular, along with the development of solutions in the renewable energies field, the Group has added a strong commitment to favour a more efficient and sustainable management of the water supply chain, which todays takes the form of a complete offer for water metering. Moreover, there are projects dedicated to innovate the products supplied to its clients, with a view to increasing circularity and sustainability.
Regarding the environmental impact of its production activities, Pietro Fiorentini pays great attention to the monitoring and improvement of its sustainability performance in terms of waste valorisation, energy efficiency and water resources management.
In particular, 72% of waste is destined for recovery, with the aim of giving new life to the materials used. From a circular economy perspective, the Company works with its partners along the supply chain with the aim of reducing packaging quantity and using increasingly sustainable and easily recyclable materials.
The sustainable mobility project continues with the aim of converting the company fleet to electricity, to ensure better performances in terms of CO2 and pollutants emission. The Company aims of converting all vehicles assigned to employees to the electric system.
By comparing the total energy consumption to the turnover of the companies included into the perimeter of the Sustainability Report, for 2021 we get an energy intensity indicator down by about 15% compared to 2019. This demonstrates the Group’s ability to make its processes more efficient, with benefits in terms of less impact on the environment.
Although there are no production processes with a high-water impact, Pietro Fiorentini pays attention to the protection of water resources through periodic monitoring at all Group sites.
