Waste management

As recalled by the Group's Code of Ethics, ENAV promotes waste management policies that reconcile the economic development and value creation needs of its business activities, with the requirements of respect and preservation of the environment.

In the context of its institutional activities, both ENAV and Techno Sky have procedures which, in line with the reference legislation, regulate waste management such as, for example, used oil and filters from generators, batteries, toner and electronic components, etc.

  • The general objectives pursued by the Group to protect the natural environment and to manage the relative risks are: the standardisation of the process of management of hazardous and non-hazardous special waste, the documentary and technical assessment of environmental management and, for ENAV only, the supervision of the proper fulfilment by the in-house maintainer, of the statutory obligations and internal waste management procedures, in accordance with the SGQ-P-CET.1.8 procedure "management of inspections and related findings" and the management of the movements of radiogenic materials.

The ENAV's 2017 activities for the achievement of the above objectives were:

  • an analysis of the process of management of hazardous and non-hazardous special waste, with subsequent standardisation through the issuance of the QMS-P-ENV.1.1 "waste management" procedure;
  • a documented and technical assessment of ENAV's environmental management, the planning of which involves 21 company sites, aimed at evaluating the adequacy of the processes currently in place with respect to environmental standards, highlighting any opportunity for improvement;
  • provision of a training course to the ENAV staff of the various offices and territorial structures (about 70 participants) on waste management, with particular reference to the relevant legislation, the company procedure of reference and the use of the Sistri system.
  • ENAV's C.E.T. department (Technical Exercise Coordination) has subjected the subsidiary Techno Sky to 16 audits, involving an equal number of sites, in order to ascertain the correct performance of the maintenance services provided in the in-house contract of reference, including the management of waste produced within the same maintenance activities;
  • the management of radiogenic components through a central dedicated warehouse with a special register to trace the sources of what is held therein and all their related movements, which are systematically carried out by authorised carriers.

With regard to Techno Sky, the most significant activities during 2017 concerned:

  • The creation within the organisational unit "Legal Affairs, Occupational Safety and the Environment" of a specific sector (Environmental topics) in compliance with the integration of the responsibilities envisaged by Legislative Decree No. 152/2006 (OdS No. 07/2016);
  • The definition of the process for the management of special waste in view of the issuance of the specific procedure contextually aligned to the re-called QMS-P-ENV.1.1 "waste management" procedure issued by the Parent company;
  • Identification of personnel to whom to confer specific proxies (with the attribution of related responsibilities) for the fulfilment of the obligations arising from Legislative Decree No. 152/2006, Legislative Decree No. 4/2008 and subsequent modifications and additions, in concrete terms with specific reference to the activities performed by Techno Sky:

    • protection of soil and resources (Part III of Legislative Decree No. 152/2006);
    • waste management (Part IV of Legislative Decree No. 152/2006 Title I, II, III);
    • site reclamation (Part IV of Legislative Decree No. 152/2006);
    • compliance with the rules on air protection and management of atmospheric emissions;
    • containment of acoustic emissions (Law No. 447/1995);
  • assessment of the training needs of management staff on environmental topics;
  • provision of two training courses to the management staff in view of the subsequent appointment as "delegate of functions for the protection of the environment in the workplace";
