For us, a company is sustainable when it generates value with the future and not just the present in mind, namely when it also generates value for those who come after us. To do this, we work so that every person in the Group understands the value of being sustainable and reflects in their everyday work the fundamental principles of social responsibility, undertaking and contributing to satisfying all stakeholder expectations, thus triggering a virtuous cycle that generates synergy and shared, proactive commitment.


Sustainability is not just an opportunity but a duty and a real mission to represent a model of excellence in the world.


Being sustainable means constantly improving health and safety in the workplace, developing technological innovation, promoting a responsible supply chain, maintaining customer satisfaction and trust, engaging with local communities by supporting them and, last but not least, reducing environmental impact by helping to combat climate change. This is all with the aim of finding a tomorrow that is better than today.


We Support Global Compact


As a sign of our commitment and the importance of increasing integration of sustainability in our strategic choices, in 2019 we joined the United Nations Global Compact, the most wide-ranging business sustainability initiative in the world.

This is a voluntary initiative to adopt ten universal principles related to human rights, labour, the environment and the fight against corruption, which promote the values of sustainability in the long term through political actions, business practices and social and civil behaviour.


The Global Compact principles are universally shared and accepted, as they are based on the: the Universal declaration of Human Rights , the Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration, and the United Nations Convention against Corruption.


In 2023, Fincantieri signed up to the Women’s Empowerment Principles, seven principles promoted by Global Compact and UN Women dedicated to companies and aimed at activating practical actions and promoting equal conditions for women in the world of work. Our aim is to bring on board a future where equity becomes a common and shared reality, and where the uniqueness of each individual is a factor of enrichment rather than discrimination. This commitment of ours began a long time ago and steered a defined course: to promote a sensitive and active culture towards issues of Diversity and Inclusion. We know that only by allowing each person to express his or her talent can our Group truly be enriched by what really counts: human capital.
