Cattolica and the Environment

Cattolica is committed to contribute to the well-being of its community and to prevent and mitigate the environmental impact of business activities.

The main environmental impact of Cattolica Group includes the use of paper, water and energy and the relevant emissions. The Group is committed to efficiently manage these resources in order to reduce the environmental impact.

The core principle that has been recently developed within the organisation is that clear environmental governance is essential to ensure the implementation and monitoring of environmental policies and their adoption within the corporate culture.

This is the prerequisite for the definition of suitable environmental policies in the broader context of corporate strategies. In addition to the impact of daily activities, the Group pays particular attention to the monitoring of climate change and its effects, which are clearly identifiable by their economic impact.

The figures provided in this page refer to the Group’s Business Offices in Verona, Rome and Milan, the Cattolica Center in Verona and the Ca’ Tron agricultural estate. In particular, in the area around Verona there are two operating offices – Lungadige Cangrande and Via Fermi - and the Cattolica Center since 2016. This building owned by Cattolica; some refurbishing measures have been completed and the facility was already partially used in the year 2016.

The figures relating to minor units (offices located in private buildings) are not included, since their environmental impact is insignificant.
