ESG challenges in the “Decade of Action” at the heart of the INWIT stakeholder forum 2022
FERIGO: “Sustainability is one of the enablers of our business plan”.
Rome, 3 May 2022 – The second INWIT Stakeholder Forum was held this morning via a livestream.
The Forum was attended by: Giovanni Ferigo, CEO of INWIT, Laura Cavatorta, Chairman of the INWIT Sustainability Committee and SNAM ESG Committee, Daniela Bernacchi, General Secretary for the UN Global Compact Network Italy, Paola Mascaro, President of Valore D and Michelangelo Suigo, Director of External Relations, Communication & Sustainability at INWIT.
The Forum is part of the sustainability process undertaken by the Company, which saw the 2022-2024 Sustainability Plan updated by the BoD on 24 February 2022 and the second Integrated Report published thereafter.
The event is the result of the awareness that the creation of value must occur through stakeholder relations, an integral part of responsible and sustainable business management.
As a result, once the Stakeholder Engagement Management Policy was approved, with which INWIT adopted a tool that would allow for more transparent and improved management of relations with all parties, the company continued along the same lines with this event to provide insights into ESG topics, which are increasingly more central and integrated into its business strategy.
The Forum was opened by Giovanni Ferigo, CEO of INWIT: “2021 saw us consolidate and reinforce the path towards the creation of a sustainable business, which began back in September 2020. Sustainability is one of the enablers of our business plan and today’s forum is now an unmissable event in our entire engagement process, since we are aware that relations with shareholders and other stakeholders are an integral part of responsible and sustainable business management and are fundamental in the process of creating value for the company”.
A morning full of insights into the challenges of sustainability in the so-called Decade of Action, launched at the start of 2020 by the United Nations and considered to be the decisive decade for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, which include the fight against climate change, and gender equality.
