Sustainability

We understand the key role that companies play in the development and wellbeing of countries and society, so we believe that sustainability means the ability of companies and countries to build up their activities and satisfy their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same. This leads us to be capable of achieving a balance between economic growth, impact on, and care of, the environment and, of course, social wellbeing. We will become sustainable over time only by being genuinely concerned about these three pillars.
