ARTELECTRIC, THE NEW GREEN PROJECT BY LEASYS
Is born first partnership signed with the palace of venaria
The first partnership between Leasys, a leading company in the mobility sector that is part of the FCA Bank Group, and the Palace of Venaria, a Savoy royal residence declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and managed by the Consorzio delle Residenze Reali Sabaude, has been signed.
This partnership is the first step in the new ArtElectric project by Leasys, aimed at supporting and enhancing art and culture by creating tourist itineraries including the Royal Palaces, Art Residences and Italian Historic Houses, by establishing and implementing a widespread network of Leasys charging stations supporting green mobility for the electric and hybrid cars produced by the FCA Group.
ArtElectric is part of the Residences of the Royal House of Savoy because of its deep roots in the local area and its relationship with art and culture. Its ambition is to quickly become a project with a national and international scope in which the combination of tourism and art is increasingly linked to green mobility, based on mutual benefits for the places of interest and customers.
The partnership between Leasys and the Palace of Venaria involves the installation of 8 charging stations at the car parks where Leasys customers who hire a car for short- or long-term use, will be able to charge their electric or hybrid cars while visiting the Palace.
Also as part of this project, Leasys will develop a Corporate Social Responsibility strategy to promote Italy’s historical and artistic cultural heritage: in fact, it will donate part of its income from rentals to support the preservation of the monumental Palace complex.
As far as the Palace of Venaria is concerned, this agreement is part of an extensive project aimed at developing green mobility with a view to making the Palace, its Gardens and the entire Residences of the Royal House of Savoy complex more easily accessible to Italian and international visitors and tourists.
Accessibility, environmental sustainability and energy saving are the principles which, every day, inspire the Consortium to actively contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030.
Thanks to the programmes launched a few years ago, the Palace of Venaria tops the Italian ranking of cultural heritage for its sensitivity to environmental issues, and is certainly one of the most energy efficient projects, as it has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions in line with the international parameters set out at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP 21).
