The greenhouse gas emissions created by the use of paper for the preparation of this Sustainability Report have been neutralised through the acquisition of 4 VERs (Verified Emission Reductions), voluntary reductions deriving from the forestation project in the province of Ferrara in line with the criteria of the "Parks for Kyoto" Committee.logo azzeroco2

In particular, the neutralisation was carried out by participating in a reforestation project of a 10 hectare area belonging to the province of Ferrara, in the municipalities of Codigoro and Comacchio. These interventions are part of the larger strategy implemented by the Province to increase the forest areas in the local areas it is responsible for.

This report was prepared with Blue Angel 100% recycled ecological paper (Cyclus Print) and digital photographs.
