In the face of the continuous evolution of the scenarios in which we live - from the geopolitical and economic environment to climate change, from digitalisation to the skills of the future - Leonardo’s sustainability for us is the constant search for a balance between the resources at our disposal and the challenges we are called upon to face.
It means being a responsible company, investing in people and skills, a catalyst for innovation, a reliable partner for customers, local communities and manufacturing districts in Aerospace, Defence and Security. With these sustainability objectives, which are the basis of Leonardo’s Industrial Plan, we direct our actions every day, conducting our business responsibly. We contribute to the development of the territories in which we are present and to the creation of quality jobs, we promote the dissemination of scientific citizenship, we guarantee the safety of citizens and infrastructure, we support competitiveness and technological progress, while respecting the limits that the environment places on us and providing solutions to prevent and mitigate the effects of climate change.
