Our policies and guidelines
To implement our sustainability approach and priorities effectively throughout our organisation, Salini Impregilo has created an integrated framework of policies and management and control systems that respect major international standards and guidelines.
In 2015, we developed a comprehensive new Sustainability Policy outlining ten core principles to guide the behaviour of all our employees. We require our operating divisions to commit to adopting these principles, along with our Code of Ethics.
We are also a signatory to the UN Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative, and have thereby committed to align our operations and strategies with the UNGC’s ten principles relating to human rights, labour, the environment, and anti-corruption.
Salini Impregilo further reinforced our commitment to human and labour rights through an International Framework Agreement signed by the Italian and International Construction Unions in 2014.
The Group has also voluntarily adopted an Integrated Management System in compliance with the ISO standards 9001 (for quality), 14001 (for the environment), and the OHSAS 18001 (for health and safety). All Group companies have implemented this system, and our conformance is verified by an independent external body.
Finally, Salini Impregilo has adopted an Anti-Corruption Compliance System, reinforcing the prevention and control structure defined by company procedures and by Model 231, a compliance scheme provided for by Italian law.
The Group seeks to contribute to the economic development, social wellbeing and environmental protection of the countries where it works, by conducting its business according to the following principles:
