Lugano, October 2nd, 2018
Nowadays, sustainability has become a core objective for Municipal, Cantonal and Federal authorities. In 2015, 193 countries including Switzerland signed the 2030 Agenda, formalizing their commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For this reason, this second sustainability report includes references to the SDGs towards which we contribute through our daily activities and operations.
Some KPIs contained in the 2015 report had to be revised and adapted. This was a relevant endeavor in light of our project of setting new long-term goals.
Furthermore, we decided to interview some of our stakeholders to receive their feedback on the importance, from their standpoint, of key materiality aspects. By comparing the assessments of the Board of Directors, our employees, customers and potential customers, we found that their priorities are fairly aligned. This is a welcomed result, as it will help us focus on few but essential aspects in the future.
We would like to thank all our stakeholders for their active participation, ideas and input: their engagement helps us in defining the path towards becoming more and more sustainable.
We hope you will enjoy reading our report and look forward to receiving your feedback.
