Our approach

Sustainability is the thread that connects everything we do today with the world we will live in tomorrow.

In the Aerospace, Defence and Security sector, we are used to anticipating needs and perspectives with a 10-20, even 30-years horizon. A time frame that makes us even more aware of our role in the Countries we live in and of our responsibility to future generations. 

Need for security, digital transformation, evolution of key skills, climate change: Leonardo's answers to a constantly evolving scenario are in our technological solutions and in our business model.


Our commitment to sustainability,  integrated to the Industrial Plan and set out in targets, has the aim of creating economic, social and environmental value, with positive impacts for all our stakeholders. 

We have clear priorities to grow together with the Countries in which we operate and to be trusted partners for our customers: we strive for identifying technological development areas strategic for the future, investing - through the Leonardo Labs - on people and skills. We support our supply chain to be sound and reliable. We aim to protect the environment, by promoting eco-efficiency in products and processes. We commit to strengthen our responsible business model, through a culture of integrity and transparency. 

Our purpose is to contribute to the world’s progress and safety, and we have chosen to pursue it in a global and shared perspective, in a logic of co-benefits for people and the planet, guided by the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda.
