Climate change

We are committed to monitoring and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and we contribute to the study, prevention and mitigation of the effects of climate change with our technologies and collaboration in multi-stakeholder contexts of national and international importance:


Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), from 2008: 
The participation in the CDP Climate Change Report, an initiative born from the growing interest of institutional investors towards ESG issues (Environmental, Social & Governance), confirms our commitment to reducing the carbon footprint. In 2017 Leonardo obtained the A- (Leadership) score, on a scale from A to F, in the annual evaluation of the quantity and quality of information regarding environmental management and atmospheric emissions.
