We are implementing a strategy for the regeneration of locations to be converted in order to promote an inclusive transition in the areas surrounding the therrmal plants concerned. Our commitment is grounded on the following key principles:

  • to integrate the workforce located at the affected sites by way of reassignment within the Group, thereby avoiding redundancies and a loss of know-how, involving the trade unions in this process;
  • to develop training programs so as to come up with new stories of energy conversion, sustainable growth, and the development of innovative ideas;
  • to work with the local communities through a multi-stakeholder approach to promote the creation of shared value throughout the project;
  • to guarantee environmental protection;
  • to maximize the reuse of decommissioned infrastructure, including roads, high-voltage grid connections, buildings, etc., in line with the principles of the circular economy;
  • contribute to our Group's shared goals through projects related to the installation of BESS (Battery Energy Storage Systems), electric mobility, digitization, and grid stability.

We estimate that, by 2024, 50% of the people leaving the coal-fired plants will be reassigned and will attend upskilling and reskilling programs, while the other 50% will take advantage of early retirement plans. We are also committed to enhancing the upskilling and reskilling programs that will involve up to 40% of the total employee training hours, as well as to consolidating other in-house training programs.

Reinforcement of the “internal training” approach

The next decade will be characterized by increasing efforts in electrification, whereby customers will gradually convert their energy consumption to electricity, which will improve spending levels, efficiency, emissions, and price stability.

The goal of the Group is to continue to work closely with our customers in order to maintain and improve access to electricity in the most disadvantages areas and by lower income households.

The Group has confirmed our commitment to projects to support the local communities, including infrastructure expansion, education and training, projects of social inclusion, and projects to support local culture. More specifically, our targets for 2030 are:

  • 5 million beneficiaries of projects for quality education (SDG 4);
  • 20 million beneficiaries of projects for universal access to clean energy (SDG 7.1);
  • 8 million beneficiaries of projects to promote decent work and long-lasting, inclusive and sustainable economic growth (SDG 8).
With the goal of helping to reskill/upskill workforce with potentially obsolete skillset, create business opportunities, and strengthen Italian production and the country’s economy, we have created professional training programs aiming at engaging the main players in our supply chain.
