By participating in domestic and international networks and associations, Leonardo aims to establish a stronger dialogue with relevant stakeholders and to multiply the positive impact of the Group’s activities on sustainability. Below is a list of some of the most significant associations.
In 2018, Leonardo joined the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, based on ten universal principles linked to human rights, labour, the environment and the fight against corruption. In 2022, Leonardo showed its commitment to the Global Compact and its Ten Principles by participating in the platform on Sustainable Finance, and by presenting an Advanced COP (Communication On Progress).
Fondazione Global Compact Network Italia
Leonardo has taken part in the activities of the Fondazione Global Compact Network Italia, including as a founding member, since 2018, with the aim of contributing to the development of the Ten Principles of the Global Compact at a national level. From 2022, Leonardo is a member of the Foundation’s Steering Committee. Within this framework, dialogue and exchanging ideas with other businesses in Italy on prominent issues (such as decarbonisation, climate change, diversity and inclusion) are crucial to consolidate the culture of sustainability in Italy’s manufacturing ecosystem, in line with the sustainable development objectives set out in the UN Agenda 2030.
Leonardo became a member of CSR Europe (Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility), the leading European business network for corporate sustainability, in September 2021. The network brings together more than 10,000 companies, with the aim of creating synergies and building shared approaches towards sustainability issues.

Leonardo has participated in Valore D since 2019. This association of businesses promotes gender equality and an inclusive culture both within organisations and more widely in Italy. This collaboration is part of Leonardo’s broader commitment to promote gender diversity, not just as a factor in equality and responsibility but also to support innovation, competitiveness and, therefore, growth.
