Rome, 30 July 2015
Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane was classified among the top three companies in the European Week for Waste Reduction Campaign promoted by the European Union and dedicated to fighting food waste in 2014.
Gruppo FS took part in this Campaign in which 27 countries competed through a programme to make employees aware of the issue and include specific clauses in agreements with catering service vendors.
Cooperation between FS and specialised humanitarian organisations ensured that unused food was donated, for example, to the “Binario 95” (Platform 95) Project in Rome, children in homes and the homeless.
Again with regard to the right to food and food waste, FS Italiane supported the Action Aid initiative entitled “In viaggio con il diritto al cibo” (Travelling with the right to food) last June, which entailed an itinerary stopping in the main stations in Italy that aimed to provide information and make the public more aware of these topics.
