2012 Sustainability Report
As this is the fourth annual Ansaldo STS sustainability report, we believe that the culture of sustainable growth has been increasingly developed within the company and throughout our various branches, and less because we operate in a sector that is already highly focused on these aspects, and more because we have approached sustainability as a strategic choice informed by our awareness of the importance that it has in relationships with all the company’s stakeholders.
Ansaldo STS has joined Global Compact, a voluntary initiative launched in 1999 by the UNO to spread the culture of respecting human rights, labour, the environment and fight against corruption, based on 10 principles.
The Environmental Policy adopted by the Ansaldo STS Group is consistent with the commitment to the development of products which are intended to increase the safety, effectiveness and effi ciency of some of the most environmentally friendly transport systems available: rail transport systems, railways, metros and tram systems.
The commitment of the Ansaldo STS Group to environmental issues has grown in the last few years alongside the evolution of its corporate policy and objectives. The decisions taken required a considerable investment of resources and a significant organisational effort, but led to the implementation of innovative industrial processes increasingly more sustainable from an environmental point of view and more responsible management procedures.
