The breakdown and main changes within each category are commented on below.

"Land and buildings", totalling Euro 398,860 thousand, consist of Euro 316,691 thousand in buildings and Euro 82,169 thousand in land. In relation to land, these are mainly company-owned properties on which the majority of the sites and production plants stand. The increases comprise the extraordinary maintenance works carried out at the company offices in Modena-Via Razzaboni and Bologna-Viale Berti Pichat (management building), execution of the building works at certain drop-off points, execution of the building works on the Cogeneration Plant in Imola, purchase of land earmarked for landfills from the Municipality of Ravenna, and building works on the 4th line of the waste-to-energy plant in Coriano-Rimini, which entered operation during the year. As regards "IFRS 5 reclassifications", please refer to note 29 "Non-current assets held for sale".

"Plant and machinery", amounting to Euro 1,227,184 thousand, is made up mainly of distribution networks and plants relating to business not falling within the scope of the concession system and, therefore, principally: district heating, electricity in the Modena area, waste disposal, waste treatment, purification and composting, material recovery and chemical-physical treatment, anaerobic digesters, and special waste treatment plants. The increase in the period mainly reflects the extension of the district heating and cogeneration networks in certain areas of Bologna, Forlė and Cesena, the completion and normalisation of drop-off points, completion of the Cogeneration Plant in Imola-Via Casalegno and the 4th line of the Coriano-Rimini waste-to-energy plant, plus works to increase the size of active landfills. The decreases also include the disposal of electricity meters. As regards "IFRS 5 reclassifications", please refer to note 29 "Non-current assets held for sale".

"Other moveable assets", equal to Euro 109,971 thousand, include the equipment, waste disposal bins, furniture, electronic machines, motor vehicles and motor cars, including the public works vehicles at the plants for handling and compacting the waste. As regards the increases in the year, the purchases of assets linked to the "E-Gate" initiative (concerning the separate waste collection in the Rimini area), and other equipment should be noted in particular. Divestments mainly concerned waste disposal bins and motor vehicles relating to the environmental sector.

"Work in progress and advance payments", equal to Euro 148,461 thousand, mainly consist of investments carried out for the development of district heating, electricity distribution and extraordinary maintenance work on structural properties and waste-to-energy plants. Other significant works included the new "Disitrat" sludge treatment plant in Ravenna, the new "Digest dry" plants at the Rimini and Lugo (Ra) composting sites, the new CIC slag recovery plant in Modena, plus revamping works on the 3rd line of the waste-to-energy plant in Modena. The significant decrease is due mainly to the completion of construction works on the 4th line of the Coriano-Rimini the waste-to-energy plant.

The amounts indicated in the item "Change in scope of consolidation", for a net Euro 28,115 thousand, relate almost entirely to the portion pertaining to the Group of the thermoelectric and biomass plant owned by Enomondo Srl, a company subject to joint control.

For a more accurate analysis of investments in the period, please see the Directors' Report, section 1.03.01.
