Highlights: main environmental indicators

Packaging
Autogrill France, HMSHost, World Duty Free and now Aldeasa too use plastic bags produced with recycled or bio-degradable material.

Partnership
Autogrill Italy and Conai launched a pilot project, “Destination Environment”, inviting travellers to sort waste on the motorway too and help the drive towards higher levels of recovery and recycling.

Waste
Points of sale involved in Destination Environment boosted their waste sorting rate (wet, paper and cardboard, glass and metals and plastic packaging) from 38.4% to 50.4% in the first six months after the launch of the project.

Certification
  • EMAS for the Brianza Sud/Autogrill Italy point of sale. A point of sale that’s more sustainable for the environment and lighter cost-wise.
  • Silver-LEED for the new “Delaware Welcome Center” point of sale, covering around 4,000 square metres.

International Ideas Competition

The 4th “Design and build for all”, addressing students and designers, continued to promote a new design culture that looks at the needs of everyone and makes daily living spaces more accessible and usable. The competition theme this time was the design of free-flow restaurant areas and seating in Autogrill points of sale.
