We are aware how important it is to protect the environment and this is why we are committed to protecting natural resources and why we endorse short, medium and long-term sustainability principles in our strategic decisions and business processes.

 

As proof of our environmental commitment, in 2016 we joined the CDP Climate Change Programme, a prestigious British organization whose goal is to improve management of environmental risks by leveraging information transparency.

 

The Environmental, Health and Safety Policy summarizes the Company’s intention clearly and is binding for all Fincantieri employees and all suppliers.

To oversee the more significant environmental aspects associated with our business, Fincantieri is committed to implementing and maintaining an Environmental Management System, certified in accordance with international standard ISO 14001, with the aim of supporting the policy adopted by the Company and giving coherence to the production model.
All the Italian sites have been certified and have completed transition to ISO 14001:2015, while the Palermo shipyard alone is currently in the interim stages which should lead to certification by 2019.

 

While the other yards operate under the Single Environmental Authorization, the Monfalcone shipyard has been issued with the Integrated Environmental Authorization by the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. This is the first procedure with these characteristics for the company, and is tangible confirmation of the sensitivity towards the territory and transparency in the management of the production process.

 

The Marinette yard in the US also maintained certification for its environmental management system, in compliance with the standard.
For the VARD group, the shipyards Braila and Tulcea in Romania and the Vung Tau shipyard in Vietnam have confirmed their ISO 14001 certification.
