The evolution of Reporting
We have been reporting on our responsible approach and our social role, on a voluntary basis, in a dedicated Report since 2009. We immediately adapted to the main sustainability and social responsibility standards: from 2009 to 2013, the Report was prepared following the GBS (Gruppo di studio per il Bilancio Sociale, social reporting study group). Since 2014, however, we have adopted the most widespread standard in the world, used by more than 75% of the companies: the GRI. To add a further guarantee of transparency towards all stakeholders, again on a voluntary basis, we have been using a third party to conduct a review of the qualitative and quantitative contents of the Report since 2018; referred to as Limited Assurance process. In addition to developing a model based on four strategic pillars, starting from the 2019 Financial Statements we have integrated the sustainable development goals of Agenda 2030, the SDGs, into our strategy.
Since 2021 we have also adhered to the Global Compact, a strategic initiative promoted by the United Nations, with the aim of fostering a sustainable global economy. Sisal is thus committed to supporting and integrating into its strategy the 10 principles that are the foundation of the UNGC, which relate to the areas of human and labour rights, environmental protection and the anti-corruption fight.
