REDUCING WASTE WITHIN THE SCOPE OF PROCESS, RELATIONS AND PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT IS A CRUCIAL DRIVER FOR MAGNETI MARELLI.
“Economic efficiency, which in our Company is expressed through optimisation, the efforts to reduce waste and to ensure safety along three main directions: pro- cesses, people and products”, comments Riccardo Codecasa, Chief Financial Officer of Magneti Marelli.
“Thanks to World Class Manufacturing – the structured and integrated production system which has enveloped our plant processes for years, from safety to the environment, from maintenance to logistics and quality, with the aim to improve productive performance – we encourage and involve our people to keep an ‘unconventional’ outlook towards industrial processes, to seek out all risks and opportunities and to generate cost savings“.
Recently, the WCM logic has also been extended to the Innovation sphere, through the adoption of the World Class Engineering methodology in the Company’s Research and Development centres. “Our customers” continues Codecasa, “are increasingly more aware and conscious of the issue of sustainability, and together we have committed to partnerships led by the highest standards of ethics, quality, innovation and sustainability. Our technology solutions in all areas of application aim to ensure efficiency, safety and to contribute to sustainable mobility”.
“Economic efficiency” Codecasa concludes, “is also expressed by management and the relations with people – whether internal stakeholders, clients or sup- pliers – and in building healthy relationships, ethical and focused on the long term...In recent years we have concentrated on business ethics training (corruption and anti-trust) because we believe that increased awareness is essential for preventing the onset of critical situations”.
The following pages provide an in-depth look at these issues, together with an account of our most recent testimony of activities carried out.
