Six of the most important countries for corporate business are involved in the
implementation of the EMS: Italy, Austria, France, Germany, Spain and Switzerland.
The System involves over 70 Group Company sites, covering 42% of total Group workforce
and 84% of total premiums.
With the aim of implementing and maintaining the objectives contained in the
Environmental Policy, every three years specific targets are established, that
the countries involved in the EMS are committed to meeting.
In April 2013 Generali defined the Group objectives and targets for the 2013-2015
three-year period which, together with the other social responsibility goals,
were included in the Charter of Sustainability Commitments and approved by the
Board of Directors of the Parent Company.
To meet the 2013-2015 objectives and targets Generali drafted the Group Environmental Programme, which outlines all of the initiatives that the countries included in the System
have pledged to meet in the three-year period in order to contribute to achieving
the Group objectives and targets.
In accordance with the ISO14001 standard, the correct implementation of the EMS
and the specific meeting of its objectives are guaranteed by periodic internal audits, constant monitoring and an information system that produces six-monthly reports and an annual report entitled Inventory of
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions of the Generali Group which quantifies, analyses
and reports the GHG emissions in a clear, detailed and transparent way.
The Certification Body RINA Services S.p.A. awarded the Group certification, in accordance with the ISO 14064 standard
, for its GHG emissions Inventory
with regard to direct emissions (Scope1) and indirect emissions from energy
consumption (Scope2) relating to 2011, 2012 and 2013.
