We design, build and manage communication infrastructures to improve the relationship between people and encourage the exchange of ideas, promoting an integrated and sustainable mobility.
An efficient mobility system must coordinate and connect roads and motorways to railway, port and airport structures. Alongside the physical highways must run the virtual ones of data, fiber optic networks, a powerful engine of mobility and accessibility, for people and information.
To ensure safe and intelligent mobility for people and vehicles, we use the most advanced technologies and solutions for accident prevention, with the utmost respect for the environmental and landscape balance.
Alongside the constant technical and technological updating, we support the human one, with progress in improving people skills, already equipped with preparation, experience and commitment at the highest levels in the sector.
We are the answer to the needs of integrated and sustainable mobility, essential for ideas, people and information to travel towards the future.
A4 Group was created to manage one of the most congested motorways in Italy and in Europe.
In 1952, the joint-stock company Autostrada Brescia, Verona, Vicenza, Padova S.p.A. was established in order to connect the east and west of Italy's Po Valley. The aim was to provide continuity for the existing stretches of motorway and boost industrial and economic development in the surrounding areas.
Today, the group's mission is to continue to support local development by improving the road system and by designing, building and managing new infrastructure, developing integrated, innovative and technologically advanced solutions in order to guarantee a high standard of service and safety to travellers.
The Company operates under a concession regime with the General Directorate for the Supervision of Motorway Concessionaries (Direzione Generale per la Vigilanza sulle Concessionarie Autostradali - DGVCA) of the Ministry of sustainable Infrastructures and mobility for the construction and operation of the motorway section of the A4 motorway between Brescia and Padova of 146.1 km and of the A31 Trento-Valdastico-Vicenza-Riviera Berica-Rovigo motorway, built and in operation in the 89.5 km section from Piovene Rocchette to Canda, as well as the external Brescia Est junction, Ring roads of Lonato, Verona (Sud and Est), Vicenza (Sud), Limena, Padova (Nord) for a total of 60 km and other minor connections for a total of 30 km.
A Board of Directors, which appoints the Chairman, is in charge of running the Company.
The company's operating structure deals with core business activities such as the management and maintenance of the stretch of motorway falling under its responsibility and designing new projects.
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.
Autostrada Brescia Padova 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.
The Supervisory Body can be reached from the address firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

The value of a company is not just about the quality of its goods and services or the profit that it manages to make. The real value of a company is also based on its ability to meet the legitimate expectations of its stakeholders. Expectations in terms of economic, social, environmental sustainability and anti-bribery.
Based on these principles, Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova S.p.A. has developed a gradual and integrated approach to managing the main issues relating to corporate social responsibility. In fact, the Company has therefore implemented an Integrated Management System certified according to international ISO standards relating to quality (9001), the environment (14001), health and safety at work (45001) and anti-bribery (37001).
Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova S.p.A. contributes to A4 Holding Group's goals in terms of sustainability, sharing the belief this is a strategic top priority for business development, able to generate long-term value and create trust-based relationships with stakeholders. In this context, the consolidated Sustainability Report represents a tool to present and manage the impact of our activities on the communities and areas in which we operate, and to formalise our commitment.
