Group Certification

The environment and workplace safety are two essential topics for us, and this is why we decided to go beyond legal requirements: we decided to implement certified management systems, in compliance with international standards and we refined them by adding of best practices and following the continuous improvement principle, to ensure that the main issues are tackled.

During 2018 we continued to implement, integrate and update the various management systems, while respecting the operational and technological differences of the various areas. Specifically, in 2018 we:
  • achieved environmental and safety certification for the operational activities pertaining to the photovoltaic plants acquired in 2018;
  • completed transition to the 2015 version of ISO 14001 standard for all certified Units (Thermo, Wind&Solar, Hydro);
  • published a manual on the integrated functioning of management systems, together with a new framework of Group guidelines and procedures.This allowed us to make the management criteria of key aspects transparent and uniform, for example, risk management in activities with third parties, and health, safety and environmental risk assessment methods in internal activities;
  • launched an environmental and safety certification process for new foreign legal entities, starting from Germany;
  • identified a single Certification Body for the entire ERG Group, in order to harmonise processes and begin to reduce the number of Group certificates.

The following benefits were achieved:
  • the coordinated management by the Group's HSE department, in line with the "ONE Company" project, of specific responsibilities for the various activities envisaged by the Management System, with the creation of a team made up of the current Management System managers of the single Units;
  • structuring and simplification of the document management system based on two levels: the first relating to "Group" management procedures
  • to ensure uniform management processes, the second relating to the operational procedures drawn up by the Units which reflect the specific features of the 3 business areas. In Italy, by the end of 2020, we will comply with the latest ISO 45001 safety standard, which will replace the current certification OHSAS 18001.

    A further objective of the project is to extend (by 2021) the ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certifications to the legal entities recently established in France, Germany and Great Britain, thus applying a single system for the management of wind farms.
