Organisations of every type, by reason of the function that they perform in society, have an important role to play in order to reach sustained development.
Social environmental and economic responsibility are the cornerstones of the concept of sustainability; a concept that within economic science expresses the possibility of continuing to operate indefinitely to advantage and which leads to the ability to reconcile the often conflicting demands of the various persons involved in the activities of a company: the investors, the employees, those who live nearby, who buy and sell, and the persons in charge.
One of the fundamental values of A2A sustainability lies in the ability to create and distribute long term and, harmonious values, balancing the needs of different parties with which it interacts: investors, employees, local communities, suppliers, clients and institutions. An attitude based on more than one hundred years of history that grows and renews itself when faced with new challenges: the liberalization of markets, the economic crisis, internationalization, climate change, the growth of collective awareness on environmental issues.
Since its first year of life, A2A has launched the Group Sustainability Project, gradually setting up all the main tools for orientation and handling the choices that affect the environment and communities.
From those of corporate governance (values, code of ethics, specific bodies) to those of the systematic relationship with the stakeholders of the most varied kind, those which inspire the choices, the quality, environment and safety, and the like, until the publication of an annual Sustainability Report.
