The 2016 Report includes further developments to previous editions, such as a new analysis of materiality created by increasing Stakeholder engagement. In this edition, the mapping of the opportunities and potential risks related to sustainability are also highlighted, such as the analysis and accounting of engagement activities.
The CEO and General Director of Ansaldo STS, Andy Barr, addressing all the Stakeholders, stated as follows:
"We consider sustainability in terms of social development, thus contributing to security, efficiency, reliability and respect for the environment with solutions which are moving on daily millions of people and transporting goods needed to all; focusing on technological solutions in response to user needs in increasingly complex and diverse contexts and lifestyles.
That is why, in 2016, we wanted to consolidate the bases of our action, which go through the preservation of the environment and resources, respect and protection of people and their security, collaboration with local communities and dissemination of the principles of CSR with all partners working with us.”
