Corporate Social Responsability
The Group works responsibly every day to respond to the main challenges and to meet the needs of stakeholders. Social Responsibility is an integral part of the Group's strategy.
Based on stakeholder expectations and business opportunities, we define a CSR strategy and long-term sustainable profitability. Through an in-depth materiality assessment based on the requirements of ISO 26000, we identified 4 sustainability priorities and 12 ambitions fully aligned and integrated with the group's strategy.
Our CSR policy also reflects the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and our commitment to the Global Compact, which brings together companies, professional organizations, universities, non-governmental organizations and representatives of the business world and civil society. The signing of this agreement in December 2008 further reinforced our desire to respect and implement the 10 fundamental principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and the fight against corruption.
