In 2015, the United Nations set Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) — a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030. The UN has defined tangible solutions to all the challenges posed by the SDGs. The first and most important objective is to make electrical energy production clean — a transition is required from the current model to one based on energy from renewable sources. Prysmian Group is contributing to building and upgrading infrastructures for energy transmission and distribution, and for telecommunications.
Prysmian Group also adheres to the UN’s Global Compact, the principles and spirit of which are reflected in the culture, values and practices of the group. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) values are deeply embedded in the group’s DNA, inspiring its strategic priorities and influencing day-by-day behaviours. Among our tools are the Sustainability Policy, which provides guidelines for all group companies and operations, and the group implements these guidelines through a set of annual targets aligned with the SDGs. These targets are laid out in the group’s Sustainability Scorecard as a set of 16 clear and measurable indicators, against which the company’s progress is monitored annually in order to ensure continuous improvement. These targets are included in the annual Sustainability Report, which is a consolidated disclosure of non-financial information combining the group’s sustainability related efforts. The document is prepared in accordance with GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards.
