Galileo strongly believes in environmental sustainability. Galileo Spa has also adopted a Green Philosophy: in 2012, Galileo officially opened two photovoltaic plants in its headquarters and in the warehouse. The system provides 1,200,000 KWh annually and avoids the emission of 765 tons of CO2. This is the equivalent of 76,500 trees, 6.6 million kilometres in a car or the annual energy consumption of 128 apartments with a surface area of 100 m2.
