Our main projects for the environmental protection

What does “we respect our future” mean?

CONSUMPTION REDUCTION

To reduce GHG emissions and reduce energy consumption, we use sensor lights in our Milan offices.

Starting from winter 2022, closure of offices during days with high traffic intensity, holiday “bridges”, winter holidays as well as during periods with extremely low temperatures.

 

PAPERLESS APPROACH

Separate waste collection is guaranteed in all offices, we use stationery made of recycled plastic and FSC-certified paper.

We aim for the dematerialisation of all documents starting with business cards for which we already use barcode technology.

 

BREATHING GREEN CULTURE

In cooperation with Rete Clima, AMCO created a first event in the Milan area on re-forestation in planting a total of 150 trees. We launched a climate coaching programme to reduce our personal impact on the climate.

We launched a project to avoid food waste in collaboration with ThinkAbout NO Waste, which recovers surplus foodstuffs.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Materiality Matrix

 

The materiality matrix shows that the most relevant topics for all stakeholders are related to ethical behaviors in the sustainable credit management and in the development of human capital, which are embedded in the pillars of AMCO’s ESG strategy.

The engagement process with AMCO's main stakeholders led to the identification of topics which are considered material, specific to a sector such as the one in which AMCO operates.
