Coesia Sustainability Report 2019
This fifth edition of Coesia’s Sustainability Report features new contents, reflecting the choice to align the report with the most widely used international financial reporting standards, the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards published by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), according to the “GRI-Referenced” option. This choice has made Coesia’s Sustainability Report even more exhaustive in terms of the detailed and comprehensive information it provides.
Coesia’s Sustainability Report for 2019 sets out the strategic policies of the Group, which, in line with its mission, are closely associated with a commitment to creating sustainable and long-term economic, social and environmental value for all stakeholders. The data presented in this document therefore describe this commitment in every region where the Group’s 21 Companies are operating.
Diversity is the starting point for laying the foundations of a new culture. With over 8,500 associates of 73 nationalities in 35 countries in 2019, Coesia is a full-blown productive and social ecosystem. Each person is an integral part of the organization, its business and its success.
The initiatives focusing on associates are designed to grow skills, enhance the quality of life and improve safety. In pursuing this, account is taken of specific needs, with the aim of consolidating a common culture based on shared values. Training programs have been activated at every professional level, because the associates are the driving force of innovation.
Safety is a crucial theme for the Group: the programs devoted to Health, Safety and the Environment do not just concern associates, but also clients, contractors and other stakeholders.
Coesia works continually to prevent and reduce the environmental impact of the Group by improving processes and introducing new technologies.
Environmental sustainability creates social and economic value and is one of the areas where we are investing in every office and factory.
In a constantly evolving socioeconomic context, Coesia reiterates its wish to pursue a sustainable long-term growth model, focusing on people and on the promotion of a sense of shared responsibility for social and environmental issues.
