Integrated thinking and reporting is a paradigm shift for both companies and investors as it requires you to look at the business model in a more well-rounded way. At Leonardo, this means evolving our representation of how we generate economic, social and environmental impacts and value for our stakeholders, by delivering innovation, security and highly-qualified employment opportunities in the long term.
We started from the top, placing sustainability on the Board agenda and discussing both financial and non-financial performance at executive level. By answering new questions and investigating new aspects of our value chain, we triggered an integrated approach, with the aim of disclosing the real value of our industrial assets, people and relationships with stakeholders.
For this purpose, we identified the main capitals of our business model and how we use and build up those resources, through our key value-added processes, complementing traditional economic and financial performance measures with data on knowledge and skills’ management, customer intimacy, continuous innovation, supplier involvement and attention to environmental sustainability.
The 2017 Sustainability and Innovation Report, drawn up according to the “G4 – Sustainability Reporting Guidelines” by GRI, adopting the option “in accordance core”, and for the first time inspired by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) framework, is available on Leonardo website, also in the interactive version. We invite to send all feedback on the report to email@example.com
