Our commitment is also inspired by our wealth of water resources and by the mountainous nature of the territory where the first large hydroelectric plants were founded, first of all the one in Tel, opened in 1898: the oldest one in South Tyrol.
Thus, thanks to the power of our mountains, we can focus on future energies with zero environmental impact as well as on a responsible climate strategy.
Our climate strategy
We aim to reduce our emissions and achieve climate neutrality by 2024.
To reach this goal, we have defined a veritable climate strategy that includes the following three steps:
Calculation of emissions produced
Definition of targeted and innovative actions for energy reduction and efficiency
Offsetting of remaining emissions (Scope 1 and 2) through climate protection programmes
In fact, all our actions are driven by the aim to achieve a balance between financial goals and our connection with the territory, technology and the environment, efficiency and environmental and social responsibility, so as to make a sustainable energy future truly happen. .
What we do
We like to focus on the concrete side of our commitment, which can be expressed in numbers:
Our focus on biodiversity
The dams needed by hydroelectric plants can disrupt or prevent the distribution and migration of fish. To avoid this, not only do we adopt preventive actions and comply with regulations, but we also invest in technological innovation to find the best solutions to protect biodiversity and act responsibly for the territory. Indeed, our goal is to minimise the impact of hydroelectric plants on nature and the environment and actively protect the biological diversity of waterways.
Alperia Green Gas: for a 100% green future
Alperia Green Gas is our natural gas offering, so customers can make a more informed choice, and is aimed at people who want to contribute to a better future using climate-neutral certified gas.
In fact, through this offering we are committing to offset the amount of CO₂ produced through targeted investments in projects dedicated to the safeguard of the environment, thus counterbalancing the amount of CO2 generated.
Greater respect for resources for sustainable cultivation and to ensure the quality and volume of harvests.
Reducing the peak flow rate downstream of the weir, thus helping to protect the region.
Finding the most innovative solutions in the energy sector and stimulating research and experimentation in this field.
