Autostrade per l'Italia Group's primary objective is to provide the country with an infrastructure of excellence, capable of guaranteeing the achievement of the highest standards in terms of both the safety of users and workers, the quality of service and finally the safety and resilience of the assets under concession.
In order to guarantee impartiality in the execution of the surveillance and monitoring activities of the network, the relative activities have been entrusted to a consortium of independent international companies selected through a European tender.
In 2021, routine inspection activities covered all of the network's more than 4,300 bridges, viaducts, overpass- es and tunnels.

Interventions for the reduction of emissions
Among the actions undertaken to reduce the emissions deriving from its activities, is the initiative launched in 2021 through the Free to X Company, to build a network of high-power electric charging stations that will be available in 100 service areas by 2023 on the highway network, with an average distance between them of 50 km. Four to six multi-client stations will be installed at each station with an average charging time of 15- 20 minutes ensuring a travel experience similar to that of a vehicle with a traditional combustion engine.
Moreover, at the beginning of 2022, was established Elgea whose mission is to produce energy from renewable sources that will cover Autostrade per l'Italia's entire needs when fully operational. The Company will aim to build facilities without further land consumption, starting from the areas of the highway site otherwise unused and exploiting the spaces within the service areas and parking lots.
