The Sustainability Report is a means of reporting, in a transparent manner and according to internationally recognised standards, on company objectives, performance and initiatives adopted in relation to ESG criteria, including the economic, environmental and social responsibility elements encompassing the broad concept of corporate sustainability.
After the release of the first Sustainability Report in 2021, concerning the financial years 2019-2020, the commitment to the ESG goals has been renewed in 2022 with the second edition of the Report. Drawn up in accordance with GRI international standards, it covers all the operating companies in the Group and includes performance indicators for Alfa Acciai S.p.A. and its subsidiaries Acciaierie di Sicilia, Alfa Derivati, FerroBerica and Tecnofil.
In the opening Letters to Stakeholders, chairman Ettore Lonati and CEO Amato Stabiumi highlighted how sustainability is at the core of our corporate vision and culture, including and especially because a circular economy approach is part of electric steelmaking's DNA, where the production cycle is based on recovering used steel (scrap) and transforming it into new products with the same qualities and contributes to the goal 12 of the UN's 2030 Agenda:
“Realising how important we are to the area in terms of its economy, employment opportunities and value chain, we are committed to addressing environmental issues in the coming years, by continuing to invest in the green transition to significantly reduce energy consumption and to increase the amount of electricity produced from renewable sources.
Buoyed by having laid solid foundations for tackling the demanding challenges in our industry,
we hope you find that the report makes interesting reading.”
