ENAV is the first Italian company in the aviation sector to join the Science Based Target initiative.


ENAV – the Italian Air Navigation Service Provider – following an in-depth assessment, obtains certification by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) which verify that strategies and Climate Actions defined by companies are in line with scientific targets defined to fight climate change.

The science-based targets are GHG’s (Greenhouse Gas) emission reduction targets whose ambition is in line with the decarbonization level, required to keep the global temperature increase below 1.5°C, as described in the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and in the Paris Climate Agreement.

In the Air Transportation – Airport Servicessector, ENAV is the first Italian company to obtain the prestigious recognition while, in the world, only seven companies in the sector have presented targets in line with the objectives defined by SBTi.

CEO Paolo Simioni said: “To be the first Italian company in the Air Transportation – Airport Services sector, certified by Science Based Target initiative, is for ENAV, a starting point and not an end point. This step, however, represents an important milestone of our undertaken sustainability path. ENAV has embraced a new approach of great sensitivity towards environmental issues and – more generally – has evolved its way of being a modern company. We are progressively shedding our skin, to ensure long-term sustainable use of the airspace, for the benefit of future generations.”
