«This is our way of doing business by creating value. This is our responsibility»
Today, almost ten years have passed since we joined the UN Global Compact. For us, this important choice has marked the beginning of a new way of doing business and creating value aligned with the Ten Principles at the heart of the Compact.
We want to create change, and in order to achieve it, our business must be guided by the Paris Agreements each and every day. For us, this means making long-term commitments that take local impacts into account, from our big-picture strategic choices to the daily activities we carry out.
But that's not all. Being among the companies that signed the Compact has allowed us to share experiences with over 12,000 companies and 3,000 representatives of the non-business sector who, like us, have pledged to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda.
Our status as "Participant" member of the UN Global Compact and our membership in the Board of Directors of the Italian Network in recent years are a strong signal of how we interpret "Making global goals, local business".
The Sustainable Development Goals were set out as concrete and measurable objectives to be achieved by 2030 by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015. They have become the fundamental reference points to map, measure and plan the actions necessary to achieve sustainable development at various levels, not only directly economic but also and above all environmental and social.
Women Empowerment Principles
The 7 Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) represent a fundamental and shared reference framework for the private sector to promote gender equality and women's empowerment in the marketplace, workplace and community. Since our signing of the WEPs in July 2020, they have been one of the primary resources for our Group to direct our concrete actions on gender equality.
