Green SUIte: sustainability in the Bank!
Sparkasse and LDV20, in a joint project with Agos, Gruppo Enercom, Gruppo Tea and the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano, have promoted virtuous sustainable behaviour, inside and outside the company.
Green SUIte, the initiative for environmental preservation with which the employees of Sparkasse, Agos, Gruppo Enercom, Gruppo Tea and the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano have activated sustainable virtuous behaviours, with the involvement of Up2You, the B Corp certified innovative start-up that develops customised solutions to accompany companies towards carbon neutrality, has been successfully concluded.
The project, born during one of the round tables of the eighth edition of the Startup Intelligence Observatory of the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano, promoted by Agos, has seen the participation of more than 600 employees, of which 150 from Sparkasse, who, in recent months have been engaged in daily tasks aimed at increasing awareness and effective environmental protection.
“Of the more than 19 thousand total missions, whose preferred themes were the reduction of food waste and plastic and energy consumption, 96% were successfully concluded, for an average of about 32 actions per enrolled employee,” explains Pietro Trentini, Project Manager of LDV20, and adds: “Thanks to the wide participation, a saving of about 40 thousand kg of CO2 was achieved, and the birth of 100 new trees whose planting allowed the capture of 50 thousand kg of CO2. ”
The award ceremony was held at the Politecnico di Milano in the presence of representatives of the companies involved in the contest. In line with the green vocation of the initiative, all the prizes reserved for the winners were dedicated to sustainability: from individual awards such as a Carbon Neutral annuality, able to neutralise travel and food consumption emissions with certified projects aimed at preserving ecosystems, to team awards such as zero-emission video calls with colleagues and clients and promo codes with which to encourage forestation in Italy or around the world
