Strategic sustainability for innovation

Development, people, innovation: our priorities

Sustainability for Magneti Marelli means the future. Because new forms of mobility invest in intelligent systems and innovative solutions which, in this period of significant evolution, call for environmental sustainability, safety and quality of life on board the vehicles. In this light, strategic priorities are based on manufacturing processes which are ever-increasingly efficient and environmentally compatible; on placing people at the centre, recognising them as the most valuable resource for company growth and guaranteeing them safety and protection in the plants; on valorising the communities in which the company is present, in order to contribute to economic and social development which is solid and stable over time.

SUPPLIERS & PARTNERS

Constant communication and openness between car makers, suppliers and consumers is a fundamental and essential element for the identification and inclusion of elements necessary for developing sustainability and defining a medium and long-term strategy. The fundamental role that companies will assume in the promotion of sustainable development is also the direction indicated by the 2030 Agenda published in 2015 by the United Nations and signed by 193 countries world-wide. With its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, it seeks to “ensure that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives and that economic, social and technological progress occurs in harmony with nature”.

“The strategic priorities are founded on ever-increasingly efficient and environmentally compatible productive processes, and on placing people at the centre, recognising them as the most valuable resource for the company growth and guaranteeing them safety and protection in the plants.

Everyone, governments, businesses, civil society organisations and even individual citizens, is called on to make their contribution to reaching these ambitious goals. Businesses play an important role. Such ambitious goals in fact call for competence, resources and financial availability which the private sector can efficiently mobilise. Last year, Magneti Marelli analysed the Sustainable Development Goals in order to identify those on which its activities have the most impact and therefore where it is necessary to take concrete action. In order to translate these aims into concrete actions, last year also saw the Company carry out materiality analysis, a process which allows the identification of themes which are important for business, in other words themes which are capable of influencing either positively or negatively the capacity of the business to create value over time. With reference to these themes, the company plans and develops actions to be taken in the short and medium-term.

In order to increasingly integrate sustainability into business practices, Magneti Marelli has set up governance which intervenes at all levels of the organisation. Each Business Line has the task of bringing forward and organising the projects and initiatives created, in order to transform them into shared assets on an international level, in cooperation with the central team which reports directly to the Company Board.
