Our Business model

Economic sustainability is increasingly tied to social and environmental aspects, both at company level and in terms of market scenarios.

 

Ansaldo STS has evaluated the repercussions that macrotrends involving variables related to the environment, health and safety, demographic growth and economic development in emerging countries will have on the transportation system. According to the analysis, such trends will result in the ever-increasing shift of the global transportation market towards rail transport that is safe, efficient and capable of meeting growing environmental concerns.

Ansaldo STS’s abilities and organisation fully meet the need to innovate in order to boost transportation efficiency and safety and reduce the environmental impact.

Indeed, Ansaldo STS is a company that operates in the context of a global market. It boasts great flexibility in meeting international demand and is open to new markets. It carries out research and development for transportation solutions that focus in particular on the environment and safety, facilitating the standardisation of solutions while also developing the ability to create customised products to meet different customer needs. It has the necessary financial stability to meet future challenges, lead innovation and seize growth opportunities by promoting new projects.

With the  change in focus on new technologies  and capabilities, the Company will develop additional specific  competences and adapt its future  way of doing business to the evolving  transportation and mobility trends.
