The production of waste is an environmental aspect that is assessed and measured at all Ansaldo STS sites and offices when the environmental aspects of work sites and the construction of civil and technological works are analysed.

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.

The most prominent waste in production sites relates to paper, cardboard and wood packaging, metal and out-of-order equipment.

Production sites - In 2017, overall production of waste fell due to the reduction in non-hazardous waste. Furthermore, the proportion of recovered waste increased compared to disposed waste.

Offices - In 2017 the total quantity of waste produced fell considerably, particularly in terms of non-hazardous waste which in 2016 was concentrated in the Australian sites in Brisbane and Perth. Furthermore, the proportion of recovered waste increased compared to disposed waste.

Packaging

In terms of packaging, Ansaldo STS uses mixed material packaging, plastic, cardboard and wood (crates). As a result of a specific policy introduced by Ansaldo STS, part of the wood and plastic packaging is reused to package similar products, especially at the central warehouses at the Piossasco and Tito Scalo sites.
