Ansaldo STS is aware of the contribution that each company can give to safeguarding the world’s resources by adopting policies to reduce the intensive use of raw materials, an objective promulgated by the OECD Council and in the sustainability strategies of many nations.

However, Ansaldo STS’s search for increasingly standardized designs and innovation will increasingly lead to an overall reduction in the consumption of raw materials directly and indirectly through a reduced use of components. The use of powerful technological platforms integrating several functions in the same subsystem enable Ansaldo STS to reduce the size of equipment and their connectors, using simple and effective systems for scheduling, testing and roll-out.
