Sustainable consumption

We are ready to take concrete actions so that future generations can count on a cleaner, more liveable and more sustainable planet.

The responsible approach to the environment is reflected in the business and operational model of the doValue Group.
The environmental impacts refer to energy consumption, the use of consumables and waste disposal and management.

1. Energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions
The Group promotes an efficient use of energy resources in order to improve energy sustainability and to enhance environmental management systems.

* The data refer only to the Italian companies, Greek company and Spanish company of the Group. For the Altamira companies in Cyprus and Portugal, the energy consumption was not considered material.

The following table presents the data relating to emissions (Scope 1 - Direct Emissions, and Scope 2 - Indirect Emissions linked to Energy Usage).
 
Emissions  ** UoM 2019 2018 2017
Direct emissions (Scope 1)        
Natural gas tCO2e 345.239 456.350 439.995
Indirect emissions (Scope 2)        
Electricity purchased from the network (Location-based emissions)
tCO2e 1,431.16 369.873 169.224
Electricity purchased from the network (Market-based emissions)   1,093.51
GHG tCO2e emissions/average no. employees        
Direct emissions tCO2e/average no.
Employees
0.176457 0.36684 0.35830
Indirect emissions (location-based) tCO2e/average no.
Employees
0.73149 0.29733 0.13780
Indirect emissions (market-based) tCO2e/average no.
Employees
0.558909
 
The Scope 1 emissions include only CO2 and exclude other gases (e.g. HFC).
** The 2017 and 2018 data relating to the GHG emissions and GHG emissions by average number of employees published in the previous NFSs have been restated following the refinement of the calculation methods.
 

2. Consumption of materials
doValue promotes virtuous practices both among employees and in business relationships.
 
Materials used by weight

* The data refer only to the Italian companies, Greek company and Spanish company of the Group. For the Altamira companies in Cyprus and Portugal, the consumption of materials was not considered material.
 
In addition the Group supports initiatives aimed at reducing plastic consumption, for example providing a bottle at italian employees or replacing plastic cups and plates with paper or durable materials.
 
3. Waste production and disposal
The doValue Group adopt responsible behaviour with regard to the production and disposal of waste, which are in any case related only to office activities, promoting among employees virtuous behaviour concerning the differentiation of office waste.
