ProteggiAmo l’ambiente: discover the project of Acea School
In Acea we look after our people with a series of initiatives designed to improve the quality of life inside and outside the company, in line with the objectives of our Industrial and Sustainability Plans.
We have devised a Corporate Welfare Plan to increase the personal and professional well-being of our people, responding to new social needs.
Measures have been developed in favour of diversity and inclusion, parenting, psycho-physical well-being, economic benefits, prevention and health care of employees and their families and work-life balance, which encourage flexibility at work, increase the sense of belonging and improve the corporate climate as a whole, thanks also to training sessions on the technological-digital transformation processes that the Group is currently implementing.
In 2022 the Group Welfare Plan was strengthened - we identified six fundamental pillars relating to health, work-life balance measures, psycho-physical well-being, supplementary pension, economic benefits and family.
Numerous remote information-gathering meetings were held to promote the Welfare Plan, actively involving all our people, and we made available a series of dedicated training videos on the company Intranet.
Acea implemented numerous corporate welfare initiatives throughout 2022, promoting important communication campaigns including Prevent with Acea, dedicated to prevention, I Take Care of You, in support of care, assistance and fragility needs, Acea and Fitprime Together for Well-being, to promote healthy lifestyles, Let’s Get Guidance to raise awareness on professional orientation for children, and Acea Goes E-bike for sustainable mobility:
Welfare services for health and wellbeing
Measures of work-life balance
Not just Smart Working, but also flexible working hours and measures designed for parenting support.
Welfare measures for psychophysical wellness care
Welfare serivices for families
Income support measures
Our remuneration policy is based on a culture of merit and value. A performance bonus is paid to all employees each year, linked to company results. Since 2019 it’s been possible to convert the premium into welfare and supplementary pension services, with the advantage of tax deductions, through the MyWelfare platform.
The contractual supplementary pension is represented by the Pegaso Fund, which over the years is taking on an increasingly significant role among the people of the Group.

Acea Goes e-Bike – Acea sustainability now travels on two wheels
With a view to combining our commitment to sustainability and attention to people, our Group has launched the Acea Goes e-Bike project, a bike sharing service available to staff. 20 pedal-assisted electric bikes have been made available at Headquarters for work trips around the city. Following a pilot period, the service will be extended to other offices and operating sites of the Group, in order to increasingly encourage sustainable mobility and initiatives dedicated to our people’s wellbeing.
In July 2022 Acea joined Social Value Italia, an association that promotes the culture and practice of measuring the social value of companies, organizations and public administrations.
Our Group and the association are especially committed to assessing the impact of corporate welfare plans as an innovative tool to promote the wellbeing of our people.
Well-being in Acea also means promoting a culture of inclusion and appreciation of diversity by combating all forms of discrimination.
Diversity & Inclusion has taken on increasing significance for Acea, which promotes greater sensitivity at all organisational levels through projects, initiatives and tools to integrate these issues into the modus operandi of the company, individuals and stakeholders of reference.
The 2021-2022 Diversity & Inclusion Plan has defined a program of initiatives aimed both internally, with actions focused on employees, and externally, with impact initiatives on customers and on the territory, through the development of D&I projects. An important project is linked to training on unconscious bias aimed at employees to provide useful tools for promoting the value of diversity in the company and inclusive work relationships. The project involved 5,190 people, made aware of cognitive biases and widespread prejudices, of their impact in organisations and of the possible resistances to the development of an inclusive culture.
We also took part in the Sistema Scuola Impresa project in 2021, contributing to the implementation of the Inspirational Talks Role Model initiative, a program to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) training courses among middle and high school students.
