Saipem’s 12th Sustainability Report detailing the Company’s commitments and achievements in key areas in 2017 and how it is equipped to deal with new emerging scenarios is now online

Saipem released its 12th Sustainability Report, marking a 60-year extraordinary journey of innovative approaches in response to the challenges posed by the evolution of global scenarios. Saipem Sustainability 2017 is the operative tool to measure the Company’s performance and to increasingly dialogue with all its stakeholders. This is reflected in the way Saipem communicates and in the willingness to show how it creates economic and social value: through long-term vision together with its three cornerstones - ethics, competence and technology.

Opening with the role of tomorrow’s Saipem in creating value based on the evolution of global scenarios, Saipem Sustainability 2017 takes an in-depth look at the most significant issues for the sustainability of the business, identified with the help of almost 5,000 stakeholders involved in the materiality analysis. Each contributes to answering the following questions: How does Saipem guarantee a safe environment to ensure people’s safety during its operations? How is Saipem equipped to be a responsible and competitive business player in the long-term? What solutions is Saipem adopting to minimise the environmental impact of its operations? What is Saipem doing to build and maintain a talented and healthy workforce?
