Sustainability in the organisational structure

  • The organisational basis of this governance is represented by the Chairman responsible for setting policy throughout the company.

An advanced sustainability governance system allows the Group to effectively manage the economic, social and environmental impact of its processes, products and services, with a constant focus on innovation, with the awareness of the role of a multinational group in a global context and in view of comprehensive risk prevention.
The organisational basis of this governance is represented by the Sustainability Steering Committee, which is also responsible for equal opportunity issues and policy. This body, which was formed by the Chairman at the beginning of 2004 and chaired personally by him, is responsible for setting policy and guiding the advancement of sustainability throughout the company. Then, the organisational structure is made up of a Group Sustainability and Risk Governance Department, which reports directly to the Group General Counsel.
The SRG Department is centrally comprised by the Group Sustainability and Equal Opportunities Officer and locally by the Sustainability and Equal Opportunities Country Managers, covering all Group affiliates.
