Vision and Mission

We work to create an increasingly technological and sustainbale future, focusing on innovation and respect for people and the environment.

Our every action, project, initiative or decision is based on the strict observance of the law, on the protection of workers and the environment, and on value creation for all our stakeholders: shareholders, employees, clients, trade and financial partners, local communities and groups.


Fincantieri strategic approach to sustainability is represented in the Sustainability Plan which, through the Charter of Sustainability Commitments, breaks down the commitments undertaken by the Group into qualitative and quantitative targets that can be measured over time.
