World Environment Day 2022: Leonardo's commitment to protecting the planet

06 June 2022

Leonardo celebrates the World Environment Day and confirms its commitment to protecting the planet and leveraging on its sustainability plan to achieve the SDGs.

Protecting the environment and mitigating the effects of climate change: by leveraging its technological and digital innovation capability, Leonardo is committed to playing a leading role in solving global problems and accelerating the transition to sustainable and inclusive development. Protecting the planet is a central element of Leonardo's sustainability plan and translates the Group's vision into action through projects, initiatives and activities geared towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda, in line with the European Green Deal and the Next Generation EU.

And the results achieved recognise Leonardo’s commitment and the actions taken to reduce emissions, mitigate risks linked to climate change, and to make the transition to a low carbon economy. The company has been confirmed for the second year in a row on CDP’s (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) ‘Climate A List’, and ranks first in the assessment by the international non-profit organisation – further evidence of Leonardo’s commitment to tackling climate change.

These goals have been reached thanks to Leonardo’s research and implementation of innovative solutions, including advanced materials, the development of hybrid electric propulsion technologies, and traffic control systems for more sustainable air mobility, through to solutions for satellite Earth observation and monitoring, and the virtualisation of products and services.
