Through an internal contest, the Acea Group selected the best projects for the sustainable development of the area in which it operates. These projects are oriented towards ecological transition and may contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda.
The event, in addition to highlighting the Acea Group's initiatives on the subject of sustainability, aims to create a moment of sharing and discussion to enhance the contribution of its people. In order to develop their projects, the participants had to choose among three categories: ecological transition, social protection and development, innovation and start-up.
Below are the "sustainable" projects that stood out in each of the areas covered by the Acea Green Cup 2022 contest.
The Innovation and start-up award went to the Gori company with the project energieperilsarno.it, a website created to inform the territory about the rehabilitation and monitoring works of the Sarno river basin.
Acea Innovation wins the award for the energy transition with the “Comunità Energetiche Rinnovabili” (Renewable Energy Communities) project, created with the aim of increasing energy independence.
The award went to the research and experimentation work “Volatolomics da espirato” (Exhaled air volatolomics) of the Industrial Area of the Engineering Group realised in collaboration with the Tor Vergata University Hospital and Sagen association, aimed at the prevention of some types of tumours.
