The production of waste is an environmental aspect that is assessed and measured at all Ansaldo STS sites, and when the environmental aspects of work sites and the construction of civil and technological works are analyzed.
The most prominent waste in production sites is related to paper, cardboard and wood packaging, metal and out of order equipment. Ansaldo STS’s policy is to reinforce prevention and the re-use, recycling and recovery of waste. All its sites have waste collection areas based on the type of waste and site layout. External specialist companies collect and process the hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
|PRODUCTION SITES||OFFICE SITES|
|% disposed of||78%||71%||94%||2%||72%||34%|
|% disposed of||4%||67%||40%||53%||45%||56%|
|TOTAL WASTE (t)||116.69||310.62||90.47||442.89||321.16||1,564.36|
|% disposed of||13%||67%||47%||50%||46%||56%|
Production Sites - Total waste production decreased due to the reduction of non-hazardous waste, mainly at the US Batesburg and the Italian Tito Scalo sites. Furthermore, the proportion of recovered waste increased compared to the disposed waste.
Office sites - The total quantity of waste produced, particularly non-hazardous waste, increased in 2016. The strong growth is related to the Australian Brisbane and Perth sites. On the other hand, the proportion of disposed waste increased compared to the recovered waste.
Packaging, domestic urban waste and metal waste
Ansaldo STS uses various mixes of packaging: plastic, cardboard and wood (crates). Part of the plastic, cardboard and wood packaging is reused to package similar products as Ansaldo STS introduced a specific policy for this, especially for the central warehouses at the Piossasco and Tito Scalo sites.
All cardboard and mixed material packaging are completely recovered as waste.
|2016 - Packaging waste||Tons|
|% reused||% recovered|
|Mixed material Packaging||9.80%||3%||97%|
