DE&I

Each day we build an open, plural community, where everyone can best express their own potential.

 

Our approch

 

Governance

We are committed to creating a governance system that enables everyone to express themselves

Awareness

We promote the value of diversity through training, experience and involving people

Opportunities

Transparency, impartiality, merit and inclusion are the principles underpinning our processes that guarantee fair access to opportunities

Ecosystem

Our goal is to have an impact on our ecosystem, sharing and developing DE&I initiatives with our stakeholders and civil society


 

 

Many people, one team

The diversity of people is a value that feeds creativity, innovation, productivity and the generation of ideas, improving the working climate and promoting a diverse cultural environment, and so we protect it in all its forms, which include gender, age, disability, culture, gender identity and affirmation, and sexual and emotional orientation.

In 2022, we approved the first “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” Policy", which sets out the guiding principles and operating procedures to promote these values with internal and external stakeholders.

 

 

UNI PdR 125:2022 certification

In 2023, we obtained UNI PdR 125:2022 gender certification, which is part of the company’s broader-ranging strategy for diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I).

ISO 30415:2021 certification

In 2024 we obtained the certificate of conformity to the international standard 'ISO 30415', which demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the principles of diversity and inclusion, ensuring that every person, both internally and externally to the company, can have equal access to opportunity.
