ENVIRONMENTAL ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, AND COMMITMENT
Duferco Energia’s business model is driven by a strong commitment to developing a sustainable and shared growth policy aimed at preserving energy resources over time.
We adopt clear procedures and defined policies, implementing environmental management systems and complying to ambitious standards.
We develop continuous monitoring of our environmental footprint with the goal of continuously measuring, controlling, and reducing it.
Respect, communication, and engagement with local communities are key elements that have enabled our company to generate shared value.
The protection of the environment and natural resources, as well as the urgency to counter climate change, are strategic factors in the planning, operation, and development of our business activities.
This approach is mainly reflected in the compliance of its operations with
all applicable laws, regulations, standards, and any other environmental requirements in force.
Duferco Energia’s activities are, moreover, deeply linked to the communities in which the company operates. Our focus on respecting and enhancing the territory is expressed clearly by various partnerships undertaken with local sports and social associations.
The Group is committed to promoting the physical, social, and professional well-being of its employees and the sustainable growth of local areas, communities, and the environment.
This mission will be achieved through specific initiatives that will involve the company’s four divisions (Energy, Steel, Shipping, and Innovation). Furthermore, this purpose is added as one item of the Group’s sustainability plan, with priority action areas for each business unit.
THE 9 PILLARS OF THE SUSTAINABILITY PLAN

The nine (9) pillars are divided into three (3) categories, 3 for each ESG aspect (environment, social, and governance), that will gather the initiatives that are currently being under approval.
