Towards consolidation: Areas of intervention

A road map has now been created, based on priority lines of intervention and planning assumptions. The map:

  • identifies areas in which future planning might eventually be developed;
  • identifies which of these areas can be taken directly to the creation stage and which require preliminary feasibility studies, i.e. in-depth and systematic analyses aimed at identifying which projects to launch, after establishing the materials and the expected outcomes.

The road map identifies four development areas to explore for potential planning.


In the interventions carried out, and particularly at the restoration stage, Snam provides in-depth information for execution of the project that also aims to deal with authorisation procedures. This in-depth information (measurements, descriptions, environmental monitoring and studies), prepared at times by implementing partnerships with other entities, constitutes a significant source of knowledge sharing. Snam therefore produces and manages unique information and elements of regional knowledge, to be shared with, and create value for, local and institutional players. This facilitates and systematises their operations and makes it even more incisive, and also creates a multiplier effect in terms of developing synergies (e.g.: creating value from environmental restoration and monitoring).


Its relationship of osmosis with Italy, its broad geographical presence and its homogenous offerings throughout the regions make Snam one of the main drivers in boosting Italian competition by creating value from environmental resources. With its own infrastructure, Snam is a key player in national competitiveness, covering a large area of the country with a physical and symbolic network. This is even more valuable given that the physical assets are often located in areas of high natural value (e.g. protected areas/areas of high biodiversity). The Company therefore plans to identify the most suitable procedures to activate ways of creating regional value.


Snam is a company firmly rooted in the region, which has an effect on local environmental and social assets. Its challenge is to define a network citizenship model as the key to juggling the difficult challenge of competitiveness and system reliability with local presence. This can be developed by sharing assets with the region for a symbolic marginal cost: for example, with regard to the surrounding planted areas, providing them where possible and looking at ways of making them available for local players for projects involving environmental protection and social cohesion (e.g. potential partnerships with social cooperatives to manage green spaces). Snam plans to verify the potential use of structures, spaces and awareness to nurture resources and skills at local level and improve the company’s local citizenship.


Snam boasts a large capacity to stimulate demand and allows indirectly for the growth of high-value local entrepreneurship, because it needs unique, high-tech solutions. The Company therefore plans to identify the potential for technological partnerships with research entities and stakeholders (e.g. suppliers), to develop innovative products and services to improve business, whilst enhancing its suppliers’ ability to open to new markets.
