Information about this report
This document is Snam’s first Integrated Report, a single document that includes both financial and sustainability content in accordance with the Framework proposed by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).
The content of the Integrated Report is presented in a format known as integrated thinking, meaning that in addition to the annual operating results, it can present Snam’s business sustainability and value creation model for the medium and long term. If we communicate this process effectively to our stakeholders, they will be able to understand not only our current performance but also, perhaps more importantly, how we will fare in the future.
In compliance with EU Directive 2014/95/EU “Amending Directive 2013/34/EU as regards disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by certain large undertakings”, we have identified the aspects covered in the Report based on the main factors that influence financial performance and sustainability issues. Starting with this first Report, we aim to make a continued effort to improve the quality of how we disclose non-financial information by following all the guiding principles that underpin the preparation of an integrated report:
- strategic focus and future orientation;
- stakeholder relationships;
- connectivity of information;
- reliability and completeness;
- consistency and comparability.
