Chiesi Group, the largest international pharmaceutical Group certified B Corp, is among the top 150 Italian companies to be awarded "Leaders in Sustainability 2021".
The recognition comes from the survey conducted on approximately 1200 Italian-based corporations by Statista, a leading market research company specialized in ranking and analysis of business data, in collaboration with the Italian newspaper "Il Sole 24 Ore".
The analysis was conducted among companies active in Italy with the highest turnover in the country or listed on the Italian stock exchange. About 400 large Italian companies were then examined on the basis of the sustainability report (or equivalent document) as well as the 2019 or 2018 financial/annual report.
The subject of the research is the analysis of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, considering three dimensions - environmental, social and economic – for a total of 35 indicators. These include CO2 emissions and energy consumption (environment), percentage of women on the board of directors, number of employees with disabilities (social), financial stability and investment in research and development (economic).
The 150 companies with the best final score were awarded 'Sustainability Leaders 2021'. The list was published today on 'Il Sole 24 Ore' newspaper with a focus on the top 25 companies that received the highest score in the single areas, "environmental", "social" and "economic".
