Benetton’s contribution against climate change takes form through the implementation of initiatives to reduce energy consumption and, as a result, climate-altering gas emissions, associated with the head offices and direct stores. These projects, together with the now established practices and the new development directions introduced in the logistics network, produced significant benefits in 2016 in terms of energy savings and lower CO2 emissions. Since 2015, Benetton Group has carried out energy diagnosis tests on a representative sample of stores and in the headquarters of Ponzano and Castrette.
These valuations provided a snapshot of the energy consumption structure of the areas analyzed, enabling the Company to identify the major criticalities and consequently define and develop a structured energy efficiency plan.
Thanks to a project including the redistribution of work spaces and plant management and revamping, in 2017 the Benetton Group was again successful in optimizing and reducing energy consumption in its headquarters.
