Prysmian believes that protecting and safeguarding the environment is part of creating sustainable value for the benefit of the organisation and its stakeholders, in terms of both the way it uses resources and the products it makes.
The group’s commitment to protecting the environment is carried out through the efficient use of natural resources, smart deployment of logistics flows, and responsible waste management.
“Sustainability is a key part of our business model,” says Prysmian COO Andrea Pirondini. “We continue to look for new ways to safeguard the environment in our every day business.”
To help meet these goals, along with other actions Prysmian has set sustainability targets for 2020 that call for the reduction of energy consumption and cutting greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) at Group level. A portion of several hundred managers’ variable compensation is linked to these targets.
Prysmian’s sustainability targets are based on the UN’s Sustainabile Development Goals (SDGs), which are a road map to help companies take action to reduce poverty, hunger and pollution by 2030. Prysmian has therefore committed to increasing the amount of its revenue coming from low-polluting products, increasing the amount of waste it recycles, and cutting down on emissions.
