Emmanuele "EM314" Macaluso has been indicated by many authoritative newspapers as the greenest and most sustainable athlete in Italy for his commitment to the planet and attention to social issues.

A recognition that makes EM314 unique in the country's sports scene, as it comes after, for the first time in the Italian sport history, a single athlete has published the social and sustainability report.

A CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) document in which all the activities carried out by the athlete inside and outside the competition context have been highlighted and which we outline below.






Minimization of the athlete's and staff's environmental footprint:


- Digitization and minimization of paper use: The use of paper by the athlete and all the staff involved in the project is reduced to the formal needs indicated by third parties. The goal is to reduce the use of paper to zero by increasing the use of digital media.


- Optimization of transport, logistics and events - Reduction of Co2 emissions: Transports for official and unofficial commitments take place wisely, minimizing the use of means of transport with the highest polluting rate and minimizing the number of routes through the optimization of agendas and meetings. Most of the meetings take place (where possible and / or requested) in "remote and digital" mode.


- Optimization of waste management: EM314 undertakes not to release any waste or waste into the environment during training and competition activities. Water bottles and all reusable materials are brought back to the base and reused, while the files of supplements and technical accessories are disposed of only at the end of the sports session according to the logic of differentiation of urban waste.




EM314 publishes his sustainability report. The report is a formal document that illustrates the CSR actions carried out by EM314 in the field of environmental and social sustainability.
