Fincantieri has a solid and strong will to position itself as a key player in all aspects of sustainability. The Group's strategy, which sees the Company increasingly involved in the energy and digital transition as well as in addressing new socio-economic changes, is reflected in the new goals of the 2023-2027 Business Plan and Sustainability Plan.
In the 2023-2027 Business Plan, Fincantieri set out key projects to support growth and innovation, with the goal of becoming a world leader in the construction and operation of digital and green full-life ships for the tourism, defense and energy sectors.
The 2023-2027 Sustainability Plan is an integral part of the Group's strategic vision defined in the Industrial Plan and is aimed at creating value for all stakeholders. At this time of transformation, sustainability is a crucial element in the evolution of production processes and is an essential objective for the development of the product portfolio in line with customer needs, helping to ensure the Group's strong resilience and sustainable development over the long term. The Plan, in response to current socio-economic trends, has identified three Directions of development that reflect the Group's strategic vision of sustainability. These Directions not only ensure that Fincantieri's commitments are met, but also contribute to the achievement of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Specifically, Fincantieri has recognized 9 SDGs as relevant to its business and consistent with its strategic guidelines.
The 3 Directions for development, defined in synergy with the Business Plan, cover the 15 material topics identified by the Group from the materiality analysis, 7 of which are strategic topics for business development which the Group has decided to focus on:
