We started out in 2003, working on behalf of Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova S.p.A. to manage the (sub-) concession agreements for the service areas run on a concessionary basis, and to develop an in-house network of fuel stations within the ring road system.
We manage Europe’s most important parking facility, at the Brescia Est motorway exit, providing services for the mobility of heavy goods vehicles.
We offer consulting, organise, manage and directly inspect operations in the field of “customer services”, in the context of concessions (motorway concessionaires, port concessionaires, etc.), interpreting market expectations and transforming them into customised project solutions that embody and bring together the interests and requirements of the various players involved.
We also offer real estate consulting services as well as Property, Facility and Project Management.
A4 Holding Group has implemented a governance system and set of rules that allow it to operate in accordance with the core values of sustainability: ethics, transparency, safety, social development, environmental protection, open dialogue with stakeholders, commitment to the local area and local economies.
To consolidate this commitment to transparency, integrity and honesty, we introduced the Whistleblowing Channel. This secure and bidirectional channel allows anyone with interrelations with Group companies to report, in a confidential manner, any conduct that does not comply with the provisions of the Group Code of Ethics and the Organization, Management and Control Model pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001 adopted by each company and by company procedures and regulations in general.
The Code of Ethics identifies the core set of values that underpin corporate culture and translate into the principles and management policies used to implement best practices, guiding our daily conduct in all aspects of the business.
The aim of our Code of Ethics is to guide the Group’s management activities on the basis of ethical values and operating principles, in order to promote clear behavioural guidelines. The purpose of this is to meet the needs of all stakeholders and to consolidate the company’s positive reputation.
Italian Legislative Decree 8 June 2001, no. 231 introduced the liability of collective bodies with or without legal personality, for crimes committed to their advantage or in their interest by persons "functionally" related to the institutions themselves (by way of example, directors, directors, executives and subjects subject to management or supervision of these, such as other employees and some collaborators). The administrative responsibility of the institution can be excluded, if certain conditions are met, if the institution has:
- Adopted and effectively implemented its own Organization, Management and Control Model;
- Established its own Supervisory Body, with autonomous powers of initiative and control, with the task of supervising the functioning and compliance and of updating the aforementioned Model.
A4 Trading adopted the organisation, management and control model in accordance with Italian Legislative Decree no. 231/2001, with the aim of creating a structured and methodical system of procedures and preventive control activities in order to prevent the crimes listed by the aforementioned decree. This is achieved by identifying any activities exposed to the risk of crime and subsequently introducing appropriate procedures to regulate them, and appointing their own Supervisory Body.
In accordance with Italian Legislative Decree no. 231/2001, the organisation, management and control model has also been adopted by controlled companies of strategic importance.
The A4 Holding Group's Whistleblowing Channels aim to promote compliance with the Group's Code of Ethics, the 231 Models of each Group company and the applicable regulations. Violations known within the Group's working context can be reported through the digital Whistleblowing platform.
These are safe and bidirectional channels available to anyone who wishes to report violations in good faith. They are not subject to the Whistleblowing Channel, communications or suggestions on services of a commercial nature.
Only members of the Whistleblowing Office have access to the Whistleblowing Channel. The confidentiality of the identity of the Reporter, of the Reported Person, of the persons involved as well as of the object of the report and the relative documentation is protected.
The anonymity of those who wish to send a report in this form is protected, although reports by name guarantee more effective investigations and a suitable dialogue with the Whistleblower.
No retaliation or discrimination, direct or indirect, may arise in the case of a person who has made an alert in good faith.
