In Sesa, the systematic involvement of key stakeholders on material issues (i.e., the relevant elements for both the organisation and the stakeholders themselves) represents the main lever for monitoring and managing the quality of relations and is fundamental in the formulation of the Group’s organisational policies and strategies.
It is also crucial to understand in depth the emerging trends (criticalities and opportunities) in the reference context in which the organisation lives and operates, and to identify the issues on which to invest as a priority, in response to the expectations of key stakeholders
For the Group, value creation is a long-term issue, that benefits all stakeholders. We consider all subjects that are stakeholders – implicit or explicit – insofar as they are affected by its activities.

Aware of and committed to the fight against the climate changes that are affecting our planet, we are sensitive to the issue of environmental protection as a resource for the well-being of mankind, and are committed to working to safeguard the environment in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.
We believe in the urgent need to reconcile economic growth with balanced value generation for the benefit of all stakeholders and to protect the environment and future generations.

Aware of our social role, we have embarked on a path to orient the organisation and its business activities in the direction defined by the 17 SDGs. The development of the industrial development plan and ESG objectives co-exist and are interconnected in order to bring a concrete contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations.
With this in mind, the Group’s policies and practices are aligned with the International Bill of Human Rights, including the United Nations (UN) Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the fundamental Conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the Guidelines of the Organisation for Co-operation and Economic Development (OECD) for Multinational Enterprises as well as the Ten Principles of the United Nations GlobalCompact.
To create of long-term sustainable value for all Stakeholders we adopte da business model based on sustainable growth, transparency, valorisation of talent and diversity, protecting the environment and generating value for stakeholders. The industrial development plan and ESG objectives coexist and are interconnected in order to bring a concrete contribution to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations.
Underlying the business model are the six capitals pillars (financial, infrastructural, organisational, human, relational, social, and environmental) on which the organisation depends to guarantee the quality of the services provided.
In line with this evolution, Sesa is implementing an integrated value creation approach by developing a virtuous circle between corporate mission and value generation for stakeholders.
In particular, the commitment to articulate an innovative and distinctive offer led Sesa to the development of an integrated model of shared value creation, achieved by valorising:
- the human capital by enabling people to constantly im-prove their skills and understanding within the Group’s strategy;
- the infrastructure capital, the capillary network present throughout the national territory and the strong presence abroad;
- the social and environmental capital by monitoring and minimising the impact of its activities on environ-mental resources and on the communities in which the Group operates;
- the relational capital by sharing behavioural and rela-tional values with partners, suppliers and stakeholders;
- the organisational and financial capital by enhancing the development of its services through research and innovation processes along the entire chain.
