Launched by AzzeroCO2 and Legambiente in 2010, the Eternit Free Campaign promotes the substitution of eternit roofs of Italian companies with photovoltaic systems.

Eternit Free is an excellent instrument that united the promotion of renewable sources and the removal of asbestos, resulting in a reduced energy bill for the participants.


47 institutions signed the memorandum of understanding (4 regions, 37 provinces, 2 mountainous municipalities, 5 municipalities). 800 businesses participated in the campaign with 2,000,000 sq. m. of eternit surfaces to be substituted and a potential to install 100MW of photovoltaic systems. 100 circles were involved from Legambiente. 4 national credit institutions (Intesa Sanpaolo, BPM, BCC, Banca Etica) defined an ad hoc financial line for the campaign. 6 buying groups were established for a total of 500 proprietors involved.
