Protection of biodiversity

Safeguarding the landscape heritage and the territories in which the Group's plants or sites are present, also thanks to analyses and monitoring with a view to minimizing the impacts on biodiversity and the most important habitats.

Performance 2020

120

sites analyzed

45

sites with potential interference with the system of protected areas

6

sites where it's possible to carry out an intervention because they correspond to areas subject to protection, of high ecological value and with the possibility of intervention to improve the ecosystems

Actions

  • Concluded the analyses of the potential interference of the A2A Group's activities with the system of protected areas, namely with sites belonging to the Natura 2000 Network, IBA (Important Bird and Biodiversity Area) areas
  • Developed a "relevance index" to measure the degree of potential interference that the activities could have on the ecosystems, due to the proximity and peculiarities of the habitats present in the protected areas

Group sites and activities with interference on protected areas
