The aim of the Group is to optimise plant management and minimise energy waste.
Energy is procured from leading energy companies whose production is partly from renewable sources. In particular, according to the latest statistics published by Enel Energia (the energy supplier of Italian plants), 38% of the energy produced in Italy comes from renewable sources.
Although the structure of the company's production sites has been designed to run on fossil fuels, Piaggio is engaged in optimising the management of existing sites to cut consumption. Having an extensive monitoring network of main energy carriers is important for achieving noticeable results, especially in more complex activities. Since 2016, the Pontedera site has adopted measures to reduce energy waste, with a smart metering system that can use, observe and compare in real time (with a delay of 3 hours) the consumption recorded by over 90 meters at the site.
Specifically, when reconfiguring or restructuring plants, the Technology functions carry out evaluations and analysis with a view to introducing machinery and methods that minimise environmental impact.
In 2021, Piaggio presented the project for the new Moto Guzzi factory and museum. The production site in Mandello del Lario was redesigned with a strict focus on environmental sustainability and the efficient use of resources. All the new buildings will be constructed using the old building volumes, with the selection of materials focusing on efficient management of energy resources, photovoltaic systems and environmentally sustainable materials.
Energy consumption of Piaggio Group plants1
Use of fuels for company cars and testing vehicles3
In 2021 the total consumption of the Group was equal to 573,891 GJ compared to 538,508 GJ last year.
1Some values are based on estimates.The Group did not purchase energy from renewable sources certified through guarantees of origin.
2The data relating to energy and fuel consumption expressed in GJ are calculated using the conversion standards set out in the standard parameter table published by ISPRA and by the Italian Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea (MATTM) for the year 2021. For electricity, the standard coefficient of 1 kWh = 0.0036 GJ was used.
