The management of material issues
The areas of responsibility in conducting business and the definition of sustainable development goals for corporate activities are linked to material issues.
Snam periodically conducts a materiality analysis, cross-referencing the evaluations of company management with the point of view of stakeholders and, in this way, it keeps an up-to-date map of the most important issues that could have an impact on the sustainable development of the business.
The pursuit of the objectives of sustainability, connected with material issues, takes place through the implementation of projects included in the operating plans of each corporate function according to its area of responsibility. This ensures that sustainability is effectively an integral part of Snam’s business model. The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) function acts as a bridge between management and the board both in identifying actions and projects and in reporting the results achieved.
