Non-commercial investments

Approximately half of the 2021 investments involved improving facility safety. In addition, during the year, the Benetton Group continued to replace light bulbs with energy-efficient, long-lasting LED lamps in some areas of the Ponzano and Castrette offices. Re-lamping, and the resulting increased efficiency will continue in 2022 with the goal of converting all lighting in Campus buildings to LED by 2024.

Renewable energy for offices and shops

Since 2017, the energy feeding the entire Benetton Campus is generated by certified renewable sources (water and ocean), as well as the 74% of the energy of the stores in Italy (as of today). A feasibility analysis is underway for the construction of energy self-generation plants and, specifically, photovoltaic plants and hydroelectric turbines.

In 2021, the energy transition of the stores in Italy was completed, now powered 100% by energy from certified water and ocean renewable sources. In addition, the planned store re-lamping project continues with the installation of LED lighting in all directly operated stores by 2023.
