(ANSA) – ROME, JANUARY 20 – Leonardo’s solutions for decarbonization were presented at Expo 2020 Dubai, during a meeting on Wednesday entitled “Italian companies and decarbonization: a just and inclusive transition” promoted by the Global Compact Network Italy, as part of the Global Goals Week at Expo.
The company presented the founding pillars of its decarbonization approach, which are technological development and partnerships in innovation, key tools for generating long-term value.
Leonardo has a strategy for sustainability and the pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030, in particular SDG 13 – Climate action, leveraging research, technological innovation and scanning.
The “data” is therefore a central element.
Thanks to the ability to generate and process information, for example through supercomputing tools – such as Davinci-1, Leonardo’s new supercomputer – it is possible to contribute to solving the problem of decarbonization by developing solutions cutting-edge technologies, for the benefit of stakeholders and the planet.
Digitization is actually accelerating industrial transformation and offering new tools to pursue these goals.
The use of digital twin solutions – the virtual replication of a product or system that models its behavior – enables the redesign and optimization of industrial practices, thereby significantly reducing development costs and the use of materials. raw materials and energy.
The hybridization and electrification of aeronautical services that reduce emissions and manage climate change – such as satellite Earth observation which is able to provide key information in the management of environmental and climate emergencies and the monitoring of natural resources – as well as solutions for the security and resilience of energy and network infrastructures are Leonardo’s additional tools to promote green transition and development.
A broad portfolio, reinforced by Leonardo’s participation in Europe-wide research programs in the aerospace sector, such as Clean Sky 2, SESAR 2020 and their “successors”, Clean Aviation and SESAR 3 and by collaboration with suppliers, partners and institutions.
A collaborative approach is the basis of a circular economy model, which can be extended to the entire value chain.
Wednesday’s initiative in Dubai also offered the opportunity to analyze the commitment of Italian companies on the issue of decarbonization at all levels, thanks to a common position paper coordinated by the Global Compact Network Italy.
The presentation was attended, among others, by Sanda Ojiambo, CEO and Executive Director of the Global Compact, Marco Frey, President of the Global Compact Network Italy, Enrico Giovannini, Minister of Sustainable Infrastructure and Mobility of the Italian Government, Paolo Glisenti, Commissioner General for Italy at Expo 2020 Dubai and, for Leonardo, Renata Mele, Senior Vice President Sustainability.
The Position Paper analyzes the political and regulatory context in which Italian companies operate. It identifies challenges and opportunities in advancing decarbonization solutions and emission reduction targets, and is enriched with case studies of leading Italian companies committed to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 13 – Action for the climate and which stand out for the role of reference played in this field. same facade.
Through Leonardo’s sustainable development plan, in line with the “Be Tomorrow – Leonardo 2030” strategic plan, the company has identified clear and measurable medium and long-term objectives, dedicated to protecting the planet. These include reducing CO2 emissions (scope I and II) by 40% by 2030, reducing electricity consumption, the amount of waste produced and water withdrawals by 10 % by 2025 of developing environmental targets for 100% of LEAP2020 supplier partners by 2023.
Many international awards attest to Leonardo’s leadership on sustainable development issues. The company’s inclusion as a major company in S&P Global’s Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes marked the highest score in the aerospace and defense sector for the third consecutive year. Leonardo has also been confirmed in the “Climate A List” of the international organization CDP and as a LEAD Global Compact of the United Nations; the positioning of the company in band A of the Defense Companies Index on Anti-Corruption and Corporate Transparency (DCI) of Transparency International; in addition to Leonardo’s inclusion in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index (GEI) in terms of gender equality.
