Snam and Federparchi sign a memorandum of understanding to jointly share knowledge on nature and environment

San Donato Milanese/Rome, 31 May 2012 - Snam and Italy’s parks federation Federparchi today signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly carry out projects aimed at strengthening environmental safeguard and protection of biodiversity.


The MoU signed today is in line with Snam’s wider approach to sustainability, focusing on the further valorization of the tie between the company and the territories it operates in and of the mutual benefits of this cooperation. Snam has always been caring about reducing the impact of its activities and holds consolidated best practices in projects of environmental and vegetation restoration, which the company carries out through the support of specific expertise of naturalists, biologists and geologists.


In this context, the cooperation with Federparchi represents for Snam an opportunity to develop synergies and share excellent expertise in the scientific, naturalistic and faunal fields.


According to the protocol, a consulting joint work group between Snam and Federparchi will be set up with the aim of implementing practices of environmental mitigation and safeguard in areas involved by the realization of gas infrastructures. The joint work group will also carry out on the territory surveys aimed at acquiring direct knowledge of Snam’s techniques of environmental restoration.


The commitment of Snam and Federparchi will also focus on the definition and start of pilot projects, in particular, on areas subject to specific safeguard such as the Special Protection Areas and Sites of Community Importance.


Snam is listed on the Milan Stock Exchange and is one of the major European integrated groups in the gas infrastructures business, active in the transmission and dispatching of natural gas, LNG regasification, storage and distribution of natural gas.
