Our furnishings in support of the third sector

Chairs, desks, lockers, coat hangers, armchairs are the furnishings of our headquarters in Pisa, closed on June 30th 2022, which were donated to the parishes and Salesian oratories of Livorno, while another four trucks left for Turin, Novara and Gassino. Objects that, after having accompanied us in our business activities, come back to life, to furnish new spaces and give support to new projects.

In November 2022, our Assago office moved to Milan and also in this case, a large part of the interior fittings went to the benefit of third sector entities that needed it. The additional inventories were withdrawn by employees who requested them at the symbolic cost of one euro, saving still-functioning objects from the landfill.

Thus, after having assigned the furnishings of the Rome and Bologna offices to social projects, our Group confirms its commitment to local communities, the circular economy and sustainability models, which are more and more beacons in the performance of our activities.

Our fight against climate change: concrete and measurable goals

Engineering's increasing focus on environmental protection is demonstrated by the various certifications that highlight how its activities are increasingly aimed at combating climate change. This commitment contributed to the Group's inclusion in the list of Sustainability Leaders 2022, together with the largest Italian companies, in the survey conducted by Il Sole 24 Ore in collaboration with Statista.

Confirming its growing commitment to environmental policies are ISO 14001:2015 certification on environmental management and ISO 14064-1:2018 on greenhouse gas emission monitoring. Not only that, in 2022 the company has set the first two quantitative targets: one for carbon footprint reduction on energy efficiency in the offices and one on the implementation of ibreid and electric vehicles in the company car fleet.

Because for Engineering digital transformation and environmental sustainability are two complementary levers in the social and economic development of the country.

Engineering among the most coveted companies where working for a good living

How are the welfare plans offered to employees? What is the balance of life between office and home? What is the atmosphere like inside companies?

An answer comes from Italy's Best Employers, the survey carried out by Corriere della Sera in collaboration with Statista, a digital platform that collects and processes economic data. The ranking has lined up 400 companies, including medium-sized companies and multinationals, and a piece of the public sector (hospitals, universities, research centers).

Statista questioned tens of thousands of workers on a voluntary basis with questions about their company or other companies active in the same sector. The result was a grade in the school report card which allowed the construction of a general ranking and other twenty defined by dividing these 400 realities by economic categories. Engineering has been included in the "Internet, IT and Telecommunications" section.

Listening and Personal Wellness Desk

Knowing how to listen is an art for a few. Being listened to is a need for many.
A new way of working such as smart working, in a particular period such as the pandemic one, can have a negative impact for some people.
For this reason the Company has tried to identify the best answer to this problem by activating the Help Desk for listening and for the well-being of the staff.

Characterizing itself as a safe and anonymous space, the counter allowed all employees to enjoy individual meetings with professional psychologists and psychotherapists also experienced in online communication and remote management.
Valuable support in times of difficulty, an opportunity to improve and discover new potential to be used inside and outside the office.

We joined the loop: corporate events to learn about and experience sustainability

The company's commitment to employee training on sustainability issues continues, increasingly becoming a business style for our Group.

Two days of sustainable team building, training orientation skills in the woods, gathering wild herbs, preparing a green aperitif, and above all, discussing sustainability issues in a fun and informal way. This is the experience lived by a group of Engineering employees organized by Faroo, the first innovative benefit startup that offers companies the opportunity to create a positive environmental and social impact.

Faroo calculated that during the two days, thanks to this initiative, 280 kg of CO2 were saved, 15 local products were enhanced, 11 local people were helped and 36,200 liters of water were saved.

Komen Italia, the organization based on voluntary work and at the forefront in the fight against breast cancer, founded in 2000 in Rome as the first European affiliate of Susan G. Komen of Dallas.

Engineering: CDP assessment for climate change

Increasingly concerned with issues of sustainability and combating climate change, Engineering has joined the environmental sustainability assessment of CDP, a non-profit organisation with the most important reporting system for the assessment – at a global level – of the transparency of companies, investors, states and cities in the dissemination of information on climate change.

CDP's extensive questionnaire focuses on how organisations manage factors of crucial importance for climate change: from energy policies to control and reduce emissions, to the management of risks and opportunities, as well as the setting of targets and reporting of environmental impact metrics. CDP's questionnaire is thus also a tool that companies can use to devise their own climate strategy.

With our commitment to the CDP assessment, our recent membership of the UN Global Compact initiative, our business activities supporting digital sustainability, carbon footprint reporting, plus initiatives to protect the environment and promote reforestation, we at Engineering continue to participate with our stakeholders in the growing network of companies and other players involved in the sustainability challenge. It is our firm belief that only by acting together can we reverse the trend and decisively pursue the sustainability objectives of the 2030 Agenda.

Carbon Footprint: we measure to improve

Since 2019 Engineering has been calculating its Carbon Footprint, in line with the GHG Protocol. Environmental indicator of the impact of an organization on climate change in terms of direct and indirect CO2 emissions, the Carbon Footprint allows you to identify the activities with the greatest impact.

Direct emissions of Scope 1 derive from stationary combustion emissions of natural gas for office heating and diesel for emergency generators in Data Centers, and from mobile combustion generated by the car fleet.
Scope 2 emissions derive from the consumption of electricity in the Group's offices and in the 4 Data Centers.
Scope 3 emissions arise from business trips (by plane and train) and commuting from home to work.

In 2020, the total emissions of Engineering in the Italy Group recorded a reduction of 65% compared to 2019, a figure mainly attributable to the massive use of smart-working in the pandemic period, which contributed to reducing employee commuting and consumption. energy of the offices, the circulation of the company car fleet and the amount of business trips.

Earth Day 2021: Engineering support the zeroCO2 project for reforestation with a high social and environmental impact

We designed and financed a redevelopment project for the Gianturco station on the Circumvesuviana line, which is used by many of our colleagues in the Naples office. The interior of the building was renovated and equipped with surveillance systems. The exterior walls of the station were transformed into a work of art thanks to the "In futuro" murals by the street artist Geometric Bang, which depicts an image of Naples poised harmoniously between natural beauty and sustainable technology.

Eng4Future: Coding into schools

For the last four years, 30 volunteers from Engineering have devoted part of their time to collaborating with schools in different cities and spreading a culture of awareness of IT among children. During these events, our colleagues use programming tools and environments such as Scratch, AppInventor and M-BOT. These projects include the School-Work Alternation initiative carried out with the Orazio secondary school in Rome with the aim of increasing knowledge of mobile programming and robotics.

The Red Devils of Varese Rugby

Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Albania, Peru, Mali... borders don’t matter on sports fields. The Diavoli Rossi are a team made up of athletes of different nationalities, who live in Italy as asylum seekers.

Engineering has been the official sponsor of this multi-ethnic team of asylum seekers since its formation and continues to support this initiative to reaffirm its attention to situations capable of making inclusion a point of strength and knowledge.

The Diavoli Rossi participate in the C2 federal championship, also clashing in friendly matches with the Tre Rose Nere (Three Black Roses) of Casal Monferrato, another multiethnic team which has been active since 2015.
Jack Contemporary Arts TV

JACK Contemporary Arts TV

It is the first international web television channel dedicated to the contemporary arts and its key players, created by MAXXI in collaboration with us at Engineering. Managed directly by museums and institutions dedicated to the creative spirit of today’s artists, it is a continuously updated network that offers live streaming, videos with interviews and reports on all forms of artistic media and expression, contributions from art bloggers and spaces for users’ comments.

UNAR - National Anti-Racial Discrimination Office

Our technological solutions have also been applied in the non-profit and institutional sector, as in the case of the support provided to UNAR to monitor discriminatory activity. As an aid to the work carried out at the Contact Centre, which offers qualified listening services to those who report any type of discrimination, we have created a system for handling complaints, which also allows us to carry out research and compile reports on the most representative problems.

Covid vaccination centers

Engineering lends a hand to the anticovid vaccination campaign launched by the Prime Minister. The company wants to contribute to the achievement of the goal of 500,000 administrations per day for the prompt achievement of the threshold of 80% of the vaccinated population by September.

The nine Engineering offices (Assago, Bologna, Brescia, Florence, Naples, Padua, Pont-Saint-Martin, Rome and Turin) are ready to become vaccination points with the help of company doctors to respond to the need to increase the points of administration throughout Italy. When the Government, the Regions and the health authorities will launch the operation, the Engineering Group will be ready to give its contribution to the Nation.
