Salini Impregilo among global leaders in fight against climate change

Milan, November 9, 2016 – Salini Impregilo is among a group of global companies leading the fight against global warming in terms of sustainability policy to be recently awarded for its efforts by Milan's stock exchange - Borsa Italiana – and CDP, a non-profit organization that runs a global disclosure system for some 2,000 companies to help them manage their environmental performance. Salini Impregilo’s strategy and subsequent actions to reduce CO2 emissions in its activities was recognized in the CDP Climate Leadership Awards 2016 ceremony. It is a prestigious acknowledgement, which follows our Group’s inclusion in the CDP's Climate “A List”, a recognition of the efforts by 193 companies at the global level, including eight from Italy, to ensure the sustainability of their projects throughout the world.

Salini Impregilo makes every effort to help reduce harmful emissions – not only in the projects that it builds but in the way that it goes about doing it, too. This effort ranges from hydroelectric plants with their use of a reweable resource to subway lines that help reduce traffic congestion. There are also the so-called green buildings, the latest being Greece’s Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center by star architect Renzo Piano. The centre received a platinum rating in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) as well as a 2016 Global Best Project Award given by U.S. industry magazine Engineering News-Record (ENR).

Another is the Sydney Metro Northwest, a project of which Salini Impregilo is part. It received a "Leading" Infrastructure Sustainability Design rating from the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) for its innovative solutions to curtail climate change.
