Medium/long-term targets

 

Terna's commitment to sustainability translates into a sustainability plan that provides for both the implementation of projects, with relative project milestones, and the achievement of objectives with a predefined target. Some of the objectives are presented here, selected on the basis of their importance, with targets in terms of numeric values, year of application and the applicable time-frame.

Environmental KPIs

SF6 GAS leakage
Description:
SF6 (Sulphur Hexafluoride) is a greenhouse gas used in electrical substations when it is important to reduce plant size; the sealed gas enables the electrical components to be placed much closer together than in the open air. SF6 gas is non-toxic but has a powerful greenhouse effect: SF6 gas leakages are the main source of Terna’s direct emissions. The aim is to maintain the frequency of gas leakages at a low level (as a percentage of total gas installed). The average KPI taken over the last five years (0.47%) is better than the target (0.60%) and much lower than the European average (0.90%). In 2017 a new target was established to maintain the positive performance recorded thus far.
Metrics
Gas leakages during the year, as a percentage of the total amount of gas in the system (net of significant faults)
Trend
2015: 0.44%; 2016: 0.39; 2017: 0.47%
Target
0.47% in 2018-19; 0.45% in 2020-22
Year/Reference period
2022
Progress
2017 (0.47%) was the final year the previous target was applicable (0.60%)
Demolished lines
Description:
Visual impact and land occupation are the main elements of environmental impact of Terna plants. In recent years, Terna has voluntarily proceeded to demolish sections of power lines that had become unnecessary thanks to investments made in the development of its grid, and it intends to continue in this direction. In the period between 2010 and 2017, approximately 1,000 km of lines were demolished.

In 2016, a target to remove 140 km of lines in the 2017-2018 period was established. This target reflects the result of 2016 (290 km of demolished lines) resulting from the early implementation of works originally scheduled for 2017.
Metrics
Km of power lines removed (physically demolished)
Trend
2015: 98; 2016: 290; 2017: 98
Target
140 Km
Year/Reference period
2017-2018
Progress
In 2017, 98 km of power lines, representing 70% of the two-year target, were demolished
Energy efficiency of company sites
Description:
The improvement of energy performance in the main Terna sites will contribute towards the reduction of energy consumption and greater recourse to renewable sources with positive effects in terms of reduction of climate-altering emissions. In 2010, the percentage of volume in the main sites in classes A-B-C was 8%. In 2015, after the implementation of the first part of the energy efficiency programme, this had increased to 45%. The aim is to reach 70% by 2020, with no buildings in classes F-G.
Metrics
Main Terna sites in energy classes A-B-C (expressed as a percentage of the total volume of the sites in question)
Trend
2015: 45%; 2016: 53%; 2017: 53%
Target
70%
Year/Reference period
2020
Progress
In 2017, in line with the programmes, no energy efficiency works at the main company sites were carried out. As such, the KPI remained stable at the 2016 level (53%). This trend is in line with the attainment of the target in 2020

Social KPIs

Outgoing turnover rate of young employees
Description:
A low outgoing turnover rate of employees under 35 years of age is an indirect indicator of the ability to retain more recently hired employees. Following the generational turnover initiative that saw 800 young people join the company in the 2015-2017 period, as well as the huge investment in training that Terna continues to make, it is important that the outgoing rate for under 35s remains low in the next few years. The KPI has remained low in recent years; the target for the 2018-2019 period reflects the expectation of a more dynamic employment market compared to previous years.
Metrics
Annual outgoing turnover rate due to voluntary resignation by employees under 35 years of age
Trend
2015: 0.7%; 2016: 1.4%; 2017: 1.0%
Target
KPI ≤ 2% on average for the two year period
Year/Reference period
2018-2019
Progress
The target was set in 2017
Hours of training per capita
Description:
Training is the main vehicle for creating and updating employees' technical and soft skills. Initial training is important to enable people to operate in an effective, efficient manner in accordance with regulations (e.g. safety). Continuous training facilitates adaptation to technological, organisational and contextual changes. After the record result of 61 hours of training per capita in 2016, in 2017 the KPI stabilised at 50 hours of training per capita, exceeding the target of at least 50 hours over the two year period. The new target for 2018-2019 represents the maintenance of the high performance compared to the average of the leading listed companies in Italy (approximately 30 hours per capita in FTSE-MIB companies).
Metrics
Hours of training per employee
Trend
2015: 56; 2016: 61; 2017: 50
Target
KPI ≥ 45 on average for the two year period
Year/Reference period
2018-2019
Progress
The target was set in 2017. In the 2016-2017 two year period, the result exceeded the reference target for the same two years
Health and safety in the workplace
Description:
Health and safety in the workplace is a key aspect of personnel management and must be afforded constant attention by all stakeholders with rules, controls, training and rigorous implementation. It is one of the founding elements of the Group’s culture and values, as enshrined in the Code of Ethics, and represents one of the targets of the incentivisation schemes. The KPI used for health and safety is weighted by two workplace health and safety rates: the accident frequency rate (weight: 30%) and the accident severity rate (weight: 70%).
Metrics
Safety rate
Trend
Accident frequency rate
2015: 4.22; 2016: 4.99; 2017: 4.05

Accident severity rate
2015: 0.18; 2016: 0.16; 2017: 0.14

Safety rate
2015: 0.65; 2016: 0.75; 2017: 0.75
Target
KPI ≤ average over the previous three year period
Year/Reference period
2018: KPI ≤ 0.72
Progress
The target is renewed each year based on the results of the previous three year period
