Trieste, Italy (PortSEurope) November 28, 2019 – The Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri SpA has joined the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest business sustainability initiative.
Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact guides and supports the global business community in advancing UN goals and values through responsible corporate practices based on CEO commitments. With more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 60 Local Networks, it is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world.
Fincantieri CEO, Giuseppe Bono, said: “With this important step Fincantieri becomes the largest shipbuilder, and the first in the cruise sector, to adopt the Global Compact principles in its strategy. The most complex challenge that a large company like us can face is modelling its own culture, that is the vision with which we face the daily commitments on several fronts. We strongly believe that corporate sustainability is an essential instrument to create long-term value, especially from a multi-stakeholder point of view, such as the one that will prevail in the near future”.
The main commitments already undertaken by Fincantieri in the sustainability field and which lead to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set out in the 2030 UN Agenda, relate to the promotion of a culture of sustainability, a responsible supply chain, involvement of employees, constant improvement of health and safety at work, support of technological innovation, maintaining customer satisfaction and loyalty, continuous dialogue and support of local communities, reducing environmental impacts and contributing to the fight against climate change.
