The Expo Milano 2015 Sustainability Report

Expo 2015 S.p.A. has published its Second Sustainability Report for 2014

The Sustainability Report is a document in which the Expo 2015 S.p.A. describes the actions taken and the results achieved so far, in the economic, social and environmental organization of Expo Milano 2015, and also through the involvement and contribution of the many stakeholders involved in the implementation of the Event.
The methodological references that have been adopted are the Guidelines for Sustainability Reporting of the Global Reporting Initiative, the so-called G4. These guidelines represent the best practices recognized internationally in the field of sustainability reporting (see Note - GRI).

Through this experience, Expo Milano 2015 aims to promote the dissemination of the activities of sustainability reporting in the organization of major events. In fact, it is the first time that a Universal Exposition will publish an annual Sustainability Report on its activities. Moreover, it is the second time that Italians will have made valuable innovations representing a benchmark at the international level for major events: the Olympic Winter Games of Torino 2006 were the first Olympics to adopt a system of environmental management and to publish a Sustainability Report.
On the occasion of the publication of the first Sustainability Report in 2013, the BIE has stressed in a statement: "This document is the result of a great effort, it contains a great deal of important information and should be considered as part of the work process and of the documentation for the Event’s legacy. We recommend to continue its publication and also to reach a greater number of stakeholders".

The scope of the document's reporting extends to the entire company and thus comprises the overall organization of the event, the development of the works and expertise in contributions, the management of relations with the different categories of participants of the Exposition and the participating institutions, at all levels, involved in the governance of the Event, as well as with all stakeholders who in different ways have been affected by the event.
The time frame of reference for the information and data contained in the second edition of the Sustainability Report of Expo Milano 2015 relates to the activities conducted in the year starting from June 2013 (when the first reporting period ended) through June 2014, unless otherwise specified and with the exception of some updates deemed significant that are referenced in the second half of 2014. The next Sustainability Report for Expo Milano 2015 will be issued at the end of the Event.
Compared to last year's report, this report gives space to the issues that have become of greater interest as the Event approaches, such as initiatives related to ticketing strategies and special projects that are developing the theme, "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life" along with the construction of the Italian Pavilion.
Finally, the Official Partners, through a shared vision, particpated by developing a special card that also expresses their contribution to the sustainability of the Event.
