ALL4CLIMATE ITALY 2021
In 2021 Snaitech adds a fundamental piece to its CSR path by supporting the All4Climate Italy 2021. Launched by the Ministry of Ecological Transition in collaboration with Connect4Climate of the World Bank Group and with the participation of the Lombardy Region and the City of Milan, the All4Climate Italy 2021 brings together all the events, projects and initiatives dedicated to the theme of climate change, organized in view of the Pre-COP26 and the "Youth4Climate2021: Driving Ambition", held in Milan from September 28 to October 2.
Snaitech is deeply committed to environmental issues and the enhancement of green spaces. The equestrian district of Milan, which Snaitech owns, is a huge green lung that covers 1,300,000 square meters, about 1% of the entire area of the City of Milan, and is home to a precious botanical park and 2,700 trees.
Snaitech's commitment to the environment does not end there, however, but is reflected in concrete and tangible actions, such as the use of electricity from 100% renewable sources. A choice which not only generates a positive impact on the reduction of air pollution, but also contributes to the achievement of SDG 13, "Fight against climate change", one of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda signed by the member countries of the United Nations.
In addition to actively contributing to the realization of the 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development of the planet, Snaitech announced in April 2021 its adherence to the United Nations Global Compact, the largest global initiative for corporate sustainability for the development, implementation and dissemination of responsible practices: an appeal to companies around the world that Snaitech has accepted with enthusiasm and responsibility.
