As such awareness has spread, on 25 September 2015, the leaders of the 193 member states of the United Nations met in New York to approve “17 Goals to Transform our World” as part of the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.
Every day, as people and as a Group, we find ourselves working in a system that goes far beyond the walls of the company, the boundaries of the local area in which we operate and the borders of our country.
What we do has an impact on society, which is why we are called, together with other national and international companies and organisations, to show increasing awareness of the consequences of our actions and decisions.
The agenda identifies 17 global goals targeting fundamental issues to ensure the sustainable development of the planet, to be achieved by 2030. Together they form the Sustainable Development Goals.
The agenda calls on all countries and all people to contribute to the goals, joining their forces in co-operation and partnership. The Mediobanca Group has chosen to take an active part in driving such change and give its contribution by working on five specific Sustainable Development Goals:
4. QUALITY EDUCATION
5. GENDER EQUALITY
The Group is a signatory to the Valore D manifesto, a programmatic and strategic statement of intent to deliver increased diversity and
gender inclusion within the company organization.
8. DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
The Group’s continuing growth fosters ongoing job creation and protection, with priority given to recruiting young people and indirectly influencing both clients and suppliers.
13. CLIMATE ACTION
The Group’s Italian companies acquire 100% of their electricity derives from certified renewable
16. PEACE, JUSTICE AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS
The Group has adopted strict internal procedures to prevent the risk of instances of bribery and corruption from being committed. Since 25 April 2018 the Group has officially been a participant in the United Nations’ Global Compact. To support our commitment in this area, Mediobanca has decided to run a training course on “Sustainability and Human Rights”; the course is obligatory for all staff members.
