Ansaldo STS has analysed the nature of its relations with different stakeholder categories to understand to what extent and in what way these may impact business performance and, at the same time, to what extent the Company can influence the welfare of its stakeholders.
Ansaldo STS’s performance is evaluated considering the three components that characterise sustainable growth:
- economic, i.e. attainment of turnover, new customers, order backlog and profitability objectives;
- social, i.e. the Company’s capacity to create “shared value” (not just economic) by satisfying requirements and expectations;
- environment, health and safety, i.e. meeting objectives to reduce the Company’s direct and indirect impact on the environment and its workers’ health and safety.
The scores assigned by each member of the Sustainability Committee are reflected in the following map:
The stakeholder category perceived to be most strategic for the Company, in line with its culture and values, is that of the customers, followed by employees, members and shareholders. Employees’ influence on the Company is seen to be greater than the Company’s influence on them. This assessment reflects Ansaldo STS’s culture of placing its people at the heart of its organisation which is an essential component of its success.
Suppliers, local authorities and central public institutions are slightly lower on the matrix. Once again, their influence on Ansaldo STS is seen to be greater than Ansaldo STS’s influence on them. Local communities, the financial community and future generations are more influenced by the Company’s operations.
