The decision to report our Group’s initiatives and results in financial, social, environmental and governance terms stems from its specific mission and reaffirms its commitment to creating shared value. This beginning of this process dates back 60 years, when our Founder decided to stay a step ahead when it came to sustainability objectives, formulating the equation ecology = economy.
