BNP Paribas Cardif in Italy and Quantum win the Sette Green Awards 2013 – organized by the Sette Corriere della Sera – in the category “Sustainable Living” for their project of energy efficiency.
Isabella Fumagalli, Head of BNP Paribas Cardif in Italy, Cesare Ferrero, Head of BNP Paribas Real Estate in Italy and Stefano Martini, CEO at Quantum, received the Award during the ceremony which took place last week, at La Triennale of Milan.
The project was born thanks to the willingness of BNP Paribas Cardif – the insurance arm of BNP Paribas actively committed to Corporate Social Responsibility – to adopt a series of internal procedures addressed to the respect of the environment and to the improvement of working spaces. The initiative benefited from the expertise of Quantum, an Italian enterprise which develops high energy-efficient lighting systems with low environmental impact. With Quantum’s support, BNP Paribas Cardif could realize a special project of energy efficiency with the aim to reduce harmful consumption, and instead stimulate “Greening” activities in Milan headquarter, located in Via Tolmezzo 15.
The technologies and implementation phases were chosen and executed in collaboration with BNP Paribas Real Estate and BNP Paribas Rental Solutions. The intervention, whose operational phase was completed one month ago, was realised with innovational technologies which optimize consumption and reduce the emission of pollutants. These technologies allowed BNP Paribas Cardif to nominate its Milan headquarter for the prestigious LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
