Last update: Sustainability Report 2019
2019 saw FS Group record 2.6 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. Depending directly on energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions reflect the same trends, both at a general level and in terms of the individual components.
|Direct and indirect emissions of CO₂ (location based)||Unit of measure||2019||2018||2017||delta % 19/18|
|Electricity for railway traction||tCO₂||1,580,811||1,621,342||1,635,529||-2.5%|
|Electricity for other uses||tCO₂||220,346||220,977||217,921||- 0.3%|
|Electricity for road network lighting||tCO₂||121,238||118,178||-||2.6%|
|Electricity per LPT, heat||tCO₂||11,884||5,861||4,613||102.8%|
|TOTALE (Scope 2 location based)||tCO₂||1,934,278||1,966,358||1,858,063||-1,6%|
|Petrol, LPG, fuel oil||tCO₂||1,219||1,506||1,388||-19.0%|

The transport sector is also responsible for the emission of pollutants that are harmful to air quality, with repercussions on the health of people, especially in urban settings, and the environment. Although these emissions in railway transport are considered marginal with respect to other environmental aspects, air emissions must be monitored in any case. Nitrogen oxide and sulphur oxide emissions and particulates are mostly the result of combustion. FS Italiane Group’s road transport companies are committing to renovating the fleet, preferring more modern motors which significantly cut back on emissions that are harmful for the environment and health (CO2, NOx, PM): in the near future, a total of approximately 300 new Euro 6, hybrid and electric vehicles will replace the old-generation vehicles, and the Busitalia group’s plan forecasts the inclusion of over 2,000 new vehicles by 2023.
