Learn about the 2030 Agenda
On 25 September 2015, the UN General Assembly approved the 2030 Agenda, consisting of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), divided into 169 targets to be achieved by 2030. Signed by the governments of the 193 member countries of the United Nations, it represents an action programme from which to build a world in which the various aspects of sustainable development - environmental, social and economic - are integrated. The goals set, aim to fight poverty, inequality, climate change and to build peaceful societies that respect human rights. The Agenda concerns and involves all countries of the world and all components of society, from private enterprises to the public sector and civil society.
For the Group, Sustainability is the driving force of a continuous and cross-cutting improvement process that generates value and enables results in a long-term perspective.
Autostrade per l'Italia is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, the largest strategic initiative in the world for sustainable development. By joining the Global Compact, Autostrade per l'Italia confirms the commitment to integrating sustainability into its business model and identifying it as a distinctive element of its Mission, in line with the sustainable development objectives of the 2030 agenda.
The United Nations Global Compact is the world's largest strategic corporate citizenship initiative. It was founded in the year 2000 with the goal to promote a sustainable global economy respectful of human and labor rights, supporting environmental protection and the fight against corruption. Since then, over 15,000 companies from 160 countries around the world have joined, giving life to a new form of global collaboration.
The United Nations Global Compact operates in Italy through the UN Global Compact Network Italy (UNGCN Italy), an organization established as a Foundation in June 2013 after ten years of activity as an informal group. UNGCN Italy promotes the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact at the national level and is also committed to the advancement of the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) for the eradication of extreme poverty, the diffusion of peace and the promotion of prosperity and human development by 2030.
In line with the requirements of the new edition of the "GRI Standards 2021", we have updated the materiality analysis, identifying material topics that reflect the company's significant economic, environmental and social impacts and that significantly influence the assessments and decisions of its stakeholders.
The concept of materiality is closely linked to the concept of impact: material themes are those that represent the organisation's most significant impacts on the economy, the environment and people, including impacts on human rights.
Each material theme was associated with current and potential positive and negative impacts, generated by the Group's activities, defining a theme-impact map that was subjected to an assessment process through stakeholder engagement activities.
To present Autostrade per l'Italia's contribution to the commitments of the UN 2030 Agenda, the list of material issues was associated with the Sustainable Development Goals.
