Applying our Group Policy for the Environment and Climate implies an ability to effectively manage the most significant environmental
issues. To this end, in 2009 we introduced a Group Environmental Management System
(EMS) that meets the requirements of the ISO14001 standard.
StructureOf The Group Environmental Management System
The System has become bigger over time: today it encompasses around 70 Group company sites and over 350 local
offices, covering 40.5% of our employees and 83.5% of total gross direct premiums.
The premises included in the EMS are located in six countries (Austria, France,
Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland), but our commitment to improving environmental
performance is global and affects all the countries where we are present.
In accordance with ISO 14001, we ensure proper implementation of the EMS and
achievement of its objectives through periodic internal audits, constant monitoring and a disclosure system that provides for six-monthly reports and an annual “Inventory of Greenhouse
Gas (GHG) Emissions of the Generali Group” which quantifies, analyses and reports
on GHG emissions in a clear, detailed and transparent way.
To improve the credibility of our reports and the results achieved, since 2011
we have requested and obtained certification in accordance with ISO 14064-1 from
the certification body RINA Services SpA, for Generali’s inventory of direct GHG emissions (Scope 1) and indirect GHG
emissions from energy consumption (Scope 2).
