As a company we now have a new role, to provide solutions or be solution partners aiming to support current critical issues in our country and the world in general, without just leaving this task to government departments. This new role has become more firmly rooted since the Paris agreement and the UN 2030 Agenda.

Today we are called upon to trigger positive impact, as individual companies and even more so in partnerships. Every day we collaborate and work with other organisations to drive positive change towards the sustainable development of our business, and the organisation of the entire country.

Our commitment to sustainable development is strengthened every day by actively collaborating and working in partnership with different organisations, technical and trade organisations, major international university and research departments, such as Cattolica University, Bocconi University with the Observatory on the Green Economy, Brescia University, Milan Polytechnic, VDEh-Betriebsforschunginstitut in Germany, Centre de Research Metallurgique in Belgium, Swerea MEFOS in Sweden, and the Material Processing Institute in the UK.

Our commitment also involves shared objectives and signing up to joint projects with a high impact, such as:

Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development

Orange the World: Generation Equality Stands against Rape

CEO Guide to Human Rights (WBCSD)

Paper for equal opportunities and equality at work

Manifesto - A new green deal for Italy

Starting again with sustainability at the center
