MAIRE TECNIMONT'S 2020 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT OUTLINES THE COMPANY'S NEW SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY MOVING TOWARDS NET-ZERO CARBON EMISSIONS
The Sustainability Report 2020 - Creating Value is Maire Tecnimont's fourth, confirming the Group's strong commitment to the creation of shared value for all stakeholders in the long term. Creating Value charts the company’s course towards achieving carbon neutrality by 2030 for direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) emissions, and before 2050 for other indirect emissions (Scope 3).
This path started 10 years ago when Maire Tecnimont joined the UN Global Compact, and today is further strengthened by including ESG (environmental, social and governance) targets among the Sustainable Development Goals of the company’s 2021-2025 Business Plan.
Maire Tecnimont has launched a Sustainability Strategy inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This strategy illustrates Maire Tecnimont Group's evolution as an enabler of the energy transition worldwide, within a mission that places the well-being of people and the communities where the Group operates at the center, with a vocation for technological innovation that is a key element of humanity's economic and social evolution.
