The notion of weak-degradability of quantum channels is introduced by generalizing the degradability definition given by Devetak and Shor.  Exploiting the unitary equivalence with beam-splitter/amplifier channels we then prove that a large class of one-mode Bosonic Gaussian channels are either weakly degradable or anti-degradable. In the latter case this implies that their quantum capacity Q is null. In the former case instead, this allows us to establish the additivity of the coherent information  for those maps which admit unitary representation with single-mode pure environment.
