Between 2016 and 2017, total direct and indirect emissions of greenhouse gases decreased from 11,082 tCO2e to 10,599 tCO2e, with a reduction of 483 tCO2e (-4.4%). This is due in particular to a reduction in the consumption of methane for the production of heat and a reduction of indirect emissions relating to electricity consumption.

The Total GHG emission intensity, which measures tonnes of CO2e per EUR million of revenue, has fallen (-6.7%). This result is the effect of the reduction of emissions in absolute value and of the increase in revenue (+2.5%).

For Ansaldo STS, polluting emissions relate to the consumption of non-renewable resources used to run thermal plants (methane and diesel) and to the production processes that emit volatile organic and inorganic compounds, and heavy metals.
