“People first” has been our priority in the year of the Covid-19 pandemic. Among the initiatives, the allocation of 29% of investments to health and safety in work environments (ongoing tests, distribution of healthcare materials and PPEs), the promotion of remote working to all employees. The injury frequency rate (IF) decreased to 1.25 (1.31 in 2019). D&I continued to be key focus points through the Side by Side project: in 2020, the percentage of executive women reached 13% (12% in 2019) and female white-collar represented 34% (33% in 2019). The Leadership Impact Index (57%) and Employee Engagement Index (65%) - which measure the employees’ participation to corporate life - increased.
In line with our sustainability targets, in 2020 we adopted a management incentive scheme linked to the achievement of objectives for the improvement of ESG parameters such as gender diversity within management, the reduction of CO2 emissions and topics relating to occupational health and safety.
