Last update: Sustainability Report 2018
FS Italiane Group companies continue to be committed to the rational use of water resources, also through training activities and raising awareness on the subject.
Management of water resources
The Group’s core business segments require a limited use of water, which is mostly for civil use (i.e., offices, bathrooms, workshop showers, bathrooms on board trains and drinking fountains at stations). The volumes used for industrial purposes refer to train and bus washing.
The Group companies hold frequent awareness campaigns to inform passengers about the responsible use of water and, for industrial uses, they mainly focus on reducing consumption and efficiently collecting and treating wastewater.
Water consumption decreased by around 15% in 2018 compared to 2017, confirming the improvement trend recorded in the previous year and demonstrating the effectiveness of the water management process, which will continue in forthcoming years with the rationalisation of water supply accounts and the necessary steps to reduce waste.
