Environmental sustainability is one of the founding values of BAM and its cultural programme inspired by the 17 UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. A sustainable park is a precious asset, help us take care of it!
The botanical wealth of the park, with its flowering meadows and aromatic plants, contributes to the creation of an ecosystem within the city favourable to pollinating insects.
The park’s irrigation system uses groundwater from 12 wells placed under the buildings of Piazza Gae Aulenti. The accumulated water is used to generate hot or cold air for offices and residences in the area, and is then used for irrigation systems in the park and pond. This way the water that would be needed from an aqueduct for the park is spared.
The avenues, paths and pavements of the park are designed with state-of.the-art features. The concrete used filtes water back into the ground with a drainage capacity 100 times higher than natural flooring, thus respecting the natural water cycle and reloading the aquifer.
