MILANO, April 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At yesterday's meeting of the Board of Directors of A2A the Board examined and in the late evening approved the 2015-2019 Strategic Plan of the A2A Group. It is the first strategic plan prepared by the new governance of the company, led by the Chairman Giovanni Valotti and the CEO Luca Valerio Camerano, both appointed last June.

The main objective of the Plan is to relaunch and redesign A2A, initiating a path of strategic repositioning that will deliver, in 2020, a more modern multi-utility company and a leader in the environment, smart networks and new energy models, which is more balanced, profitable, and capable of seizing the opportunities that will open up in the Green Economy and Smart Cities.

  2. Relaunch of the investments in the key areas of the environment, networks and the free market of energy;
  3. Redesign of the mission of A2A to seize the opportunities of the future.
