Ensuring care for the environment constitutes one of the four key pillars of the AC Milan Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility strategy and is an essential element of the Club’s business dealings and how it interacts with stakeholders.
In order to reconcile the AC Milan Group’s various activities with the expectations of stakeholders, the Group has identified environment priorities that it is committed to pursue as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility strategy. These priorities form part of a monitoring and improvement programme, which outlines the quantitative targets and how they are to be achieved.
During the 2015/2016 season, the Group conducted the initial environmental analysis of its activities in partnership with a leading consultancy firm in the sphere of sustainability.
The analysis was conducted at all the Group’s sites: Casa Milan, the Milanello and Vismara training grounds, and the San Siro stadium.
The initial environmental analysis brought about the following results:
- A draft environmental policy that is currently being revised by the Group’s Management.
- A plan for environmental improvement, which includes the establishment of a Management Model and a series of concrete initiatives geared towards reducing the environmental impact of the Group’s activities.
- The Energy Audit of the Group, in compliance with European regulations [Directive 2012/27/EU].
An individual has been selected to take charge of managing the Group’s environmental sustainability, with a reference person nominated for each site.
Furthermore, an annual activity programme has been established, which will ensure that the plan to reduce the impact of Group activity is monitored.
