About the Report

Purpose of the report

2021 was the year in which we established our Sustainability Strategy and committed ourselves to ambitious targets aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals addressed by the 2030 Agenda. We also want to join forces with other organizations and fight for the ambitious targets set by the European Climate Protection Strategies. Operating in a sensitive sector, i.e. the mobility sector, we are aware of the negative impact generated by the main services we offer, but we want to make known our efforts towards a sustainable development of the business without harming the environment, as well as our contribution in the community to create a long-term positive impact.

The report includes a compilation of performance using both qualitative and quantitative indicators so that stakeholders can find useful information about our company. Where possible, and where we considered it relevant, we compared operational indicators over successive years, inserting data for years prior to the 2021 reporting year.

Our commitment to report annually on proposed targets and performance indicators is an important step in our strategy to contribute to a sustainable future, a more responsible society and a more developed community. At the time of reporting, the company reports on a voluntary basis and is not subject to the mandatory criteria under Directive 2014/95/EU.
