With the Policy on initiatives for the Community and Territory we are committed to dialogue and support the local communities, as stated in our Code of Conduct, Charter of Sustainability Commitments, and Sustainability Plan, in line with our values, mission and vision.

The Policy, approved by the Board of Directors of Fincantieri S.p.A., contains the lines of action on which our community support strategy is based, and fully expresses the active participation path taken towards the communities and territories involved in our activities.

We direct our activities in line with our values, mission and vision by carefully assessing the context, needs and requirements of the territories in which we are present. We support and involve local communities through initiatives, donations, gifts and investments aimed at responding to the needs most felt by communities by becoming an active part of the social and economic development of the territory.

In 2020, at Group level we allocated approximately euro 4.8 million to initiatives in favour of the community.


In managing the COVID-19 pandemic, we have shown that we are one big shipyard. We have established ourselves as a reference point and model based on a strong sense of individual and social responsibility, capable of starting back up again without anyone being left behind. With this philosophy we wanted to contribute to the management of the emergency through a series of initiatives that could be a practical and real support for those who have been working every day on the front line in the difficult battle against the virus.


We have committed ourselves through donations to the Department of Civil Protection and health facilities in Italy and abroad in the territories where we are present, for the purchase of medical equipment and materials to manage the emergency situation. Furthermore, donations have been made to the Caritas Italiana campaign “Coronavirus Emergency: the practicality of charity”, in support of soup kitchens as well as to the Caritas of the Archdiocese of Genoa for the purchase of food parcels and shopping vouchers for people and families hit hard by the pandemic and with no economic support.
