Sustainability objectives and results

In 2012 all areas of responsibility showed progress. The following table summarises the results obtained relative to the 2012 objectives stated in the previous Sustainability Report, referring to the pages of the Report which show, in greater detail, the various initiatives and results achieved.

As regards the "Integrated Reporting" objective, which is not discussed in other parts of this Report, a process was started in 2012 which led to the achievement of an online "Draft Integrated Report". This first step allowed the information available to be assembled separately in the Annual Financial Report and in the Sustainability Report in a single framework, in keeping with the criteria proposed by the International Integrated Reporting Council. This activity then continued, establishing the premises for better coordination of the contents in the 2013 official publications, including this Sustainability Report.

The objectives for 2013 constitute further steps along the same paths. The table below provides a summary of them. The following objectives should be noted in particular:

  • the revision of the ethics systems and the environmental and social responsibility in relation to the supply chain, which consists in continuing the work carried out in 2012. In particular, the improvement initiatives identified in 2012 will be included in a multi-year plan starting with initial milestones to be achieved already in 2013;
  • the realization of internal CSR training initiatives with the involvement of top level managers;
  • active participation in the Pilot Programme of the International Integrated Reporting Council, with study and implementation of greater integration of the financial and sustainability information both in the Management Report and on the website. This is also a continuation of the activities carried out in 2012, with further progress in integration of information and taking into account the new framework of Integrated Reporting which is expected to be published by the IIRC in April 2013;
  • fine tuning – after the definition in 2012 of the initial energy analysis – of the Policy and the indicators for monitoring the management system for energy efficiency, in line with the ISO 50001 criteria;
  • the definition, also based on the opinions of stakeholders, of a strategic approach to community initiatives, the establishment of a coherent action plan and the realization of the first initiatives provided for by the plan.
