Today, 19th July 2022, saw the presentation of the first joint Sustainability Report for the Italian terminals of the PSA group: PSA Genova Pra’ and PSA SECH in the Port of Genova and PSA Venice- Vecon in the Port of Marghera.
The Report, drawn-up according to the international GRI guidelines, includes all of the sustainability objectives reached by the terminals in 2021 and the two preceding years, attesting the importance of operating in a sustainable and responsible manner, with the territory in which the three companies operate always at the forefront and rooted in their business strategy.
Among the most significant results reached during 2021 were the creation of the first PSA forest created thanks to the planting of 300 trees, the expansion of the railway links to and from the terminals, which led to a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions, and an increase in the percentage of renewable energy used in the three terminals.
Furthermore, the Report also provides examples of innovations that bring together production efficiency and environmental sustainability, showing how the two concepts are complementary in the PSA group’s global strategy. Steps in this direction are the modular reefer park at PSA Genova Pra’ with its ability to adapt to changes in the volume of traffic; the new automatic gate at PSA SECH, which reduces truck waiting times at the entrance and thus reduces CO2 emissions, and the radiometric portal at PSA Venice-Vecon which, by permitting checks to be made directly at the point of unloading, reduces the number of cargo movements and speeds-up operations.
In addition, the 2021 Sustainability Report can be downloaded in pdf format from the official PSA Italy website in Italian and English.
