In a world grappling with profound and sudden changes, the development of sustainable and increasingly integrated mobility for everyone is one of the most complex challenges that society faces today. Demographic shifts (expanding cities and the ageing population), environmental concerns (climate change and the loss of biodiversity), technological innovation (digitalisation and artificial intelligence) and industrial issues (labour, resources and innovation) are transforming the transport sector and forcing it to play a crucial role in the community’s well-being and quality of life.
The course that FS Italiane Group has charted leads in this direction. Acting sustainably is the main development and value creation driver for people, the company and all the areas – in Italy, Europe and around the world – where the FS Italiane Group companies operate. Our compass is the United Nations Global Compact, and we have embraced its human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption and bribery principles and included them in our Sustainability Policy. Specifically, we have committed to achieving six of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals endorsed by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 25 September 2015 in the Agenda 2030: improve the sustainability of infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation; make cities inclusive, safe and resilient; combat climate change; promote economic growth and employment; and strengthen global partnerships to promote sustainable development.
The Sustainability Report is meant to provide a complete and transparent overview of what sustainability means for the FS Italiane Group. It is a snapshot of the actions, results, approaches and strategies that we are using to create long-lasting, widespread value that is consistent with the needs of all our stakeholders and respectful of ecological balances. We recognise that the path to sustainability is one that changes all the time and requires intense work every day.
