Global growth, local sensitivity
Our multinational spirit has always given us the opportunity to deal with multiple geographical and socio-economic contexts. The need to listen to specific local needs has allowed us to develop a strong focus on the importance and intrinsic value as well as the business value of strong local “ecosystems” to ensure our long-term growth. Collaboration with communities, the activation of supply chains in each country and constant open dialogue with stakeholders within institutions and civil society are the cornerstones of the way we create value in the areas where we work. As well as being the right thing to do, creating value in every eco - nomic and social system is an important source of competitive ad - vantage for an international EPC player such as Maire Tecnimont.
At a time when growing and often unpredictable complexities in international situations increasingly shift the focus to dimensions of regional and local development, ensuring widespread long-term growth is of even greater strategic importance. To this end, the Group has taken concrete steps to create training opportunities for young talents in the countries where it operates, in order to lay the foundations for supporting tomorrow’s industrial systems, directed towards the energy transition. As a general engineering contractor, a local presence through our suppliers and sub-contractors means generating employment and entrepreneurship locally, stimulating local industry, but also having the opportunity to share our culture of sustainability, health and safety, and attention to human rights, concretely stimulating great - er sensitivity to areas that are not strictly economic but that ensure value creation in the long term. It is part of our responsibility as both a social actor and an industrial player to provide business opportunities and opportunities for discussion and training, to allow the most effective expression of the potential that every area can express to ensure lasting growth in keeping with the development goals that the international community has established for itself.
The E&C sector is a major source of economic growth for many of the emerging countries in which we operate, yet historically the opportunities for local businesses and the local workforce to participate in this sector is limited.
