Cattolica and the Environment
It is impossible to overestimate the impact of the environmental issue and the influence that human activity plays on the evolution of life on our planet, with sometimes dramatic consequences and events of unprecedented quality and intensity. We have come to theorise the existence of a new era of history, called “anthropocene”, to characterise the features of a contemporaneity in which the domination and exploitation of man in the natural environment have reached a scale never seen before.
The international debate has now accepted the idea that companies’ choices make a decisive contribution to the overall state of the environmental contexts in which they operate, but that this relationship is also starting to work in the opposite direction: environmental variables are the source of a multitude of risks and opportunities that companies must recognise and manage.
Cattolica pursues the idea that the company business must develop in a manner that is compatible and respectful of the environmental sphere, both through compliance with regulations issued by Regulators and voluntarily through best practices suggested by experts.
These issues are destined to assume increasing relevance in the Group’s reports: the issuance of two dedicated environmental policies and the beginning of carbon neutrality paths are examples of this attitude on the subject.
The Company has maintained its commitment to efficient management of the resources used, to reduce waste and minimise negative externalities. It has acquired catastrophic coverage for risks of earthquake, floods, storms, tornadoes and hail (not agricultural), with monthly monitoring of the catastrophic events which exceed set performance thresholds, to identify potential events with high negative impact.
The data reported within this section include the management offices of Verona, Rome, Milan. Together with the executive offices, the data include the Cattolica Center of Verona and the Agricultural estates. The area of Verona is the most significant, as it includes the operational headquarters of Lungadige Cangrande and Via Fermi, in addition to the Cattolica Center.
The figures relating to peripheral units (offices located in private buildings) remain excluded, since their environmental impact is insignificant.
