Direct environmental impact

The data published in this Report refer to the companies included in the EMS, enabling a comparison to be made with the Group's environmental objectives and targets. For certain countries, the 2011 data may differ from the data published in the previous Sustainability Report. This is because the scope of the reporting activities was larger than the previous year and also because the process of collecting data and information was fine-tuned. For these reasons, the 2011 data were recalculated so they are consistent with those of 2012.

As regards the environmental aspects for which the Group has set itself goals, the variations on a like-for-like basis against the 2009 data are also reported.
