We are a strategic resource for the country, therefore, the protection of all our most valuable assets, whether they are human, know-how, real estate, IT, is of crucial importance to our employees, shareholders, and of course Italy.


With this in mind, we are committed to develop, incorporate and disseminate, within the Company, the best practices, standards and guidelines to identify, manage and mitigate our security risks in compliance with human rights, with the belief that effective prevention and protection strategies are an ethical as well as an economic value in management and business activities.


From this point of view, we ensure a constant process of incident and risk security management, aimed at guaranteeing the highest level of protection for employees and tangible and intangible assets in order to achieve our social and business development objectives.

With this analysis process and continuous improvement, we enhance the level of overall security, for which we seek a correct and conscious adherence of all employees, considering it an essential factor of success.

From our standpoint, the integrity of the business as well as the ethical and reputational aspects connected to it are a constant guideline. We are aware that the Company’s reputation is a strategic asset, and we value and protect it through a continuous risk-based strategy of preventive identification, analysis and mitigation of risks which also involves our strategic supply chain.
Attentive and vigilant to any possible interference of criminal nature that may, even if only potentially, affect the integrity of our business and of our activity within the market, we have established a strengthened cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior and with the territorially competent Prefectures. To this regard, we have stipulated Legality and Transparency Protocols unified since 2017 in a National Protocol aimed at promoting a widespread culture of legality safeguarding Fincantieri and our stakeholders’ trust.

Also in 2021, we have continued with the strengthening of the tools aimed at safeguarding human resources, material and immaterial assets of the Company and the supply chain, from criminal interferences of various nature, from social and political tensions and from vulnerabilities connected with them which have worsened following the pandemic crisis.
To this end, the Crisis Management system has been strengthened and contingency plans have been drafted both for Italian and for foreign sites. The plans are run by specific crisis committees (CMT) which include, in addition to the figures of the employers, the travelers and the heads of the competent Security departments and the Prevention and Protection Service (RSPP), also the heads of all the functions involved in the process of travel and personnel management.
A Crisis Management software platform is also active, allowing the committees to meet virtually and to manage any potential crisis situation either on the move or when the Company is not active (at night or during non-working days).
Moreover, in 2021 the training of the new components of crisis teams has continued.
