Sustainability indices and ratings assess companies based on their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. They are the recognition of a clear long-term strategic vision, stability of operational management and commitment to meeting environmental and social needs.
Below are the results achieved so far by ASTM:
Standard Ethics, an independent sustainability rating agency, has updated a Standard Ethics Rating on ASTM, assigning an EE (full investment grade) rating, recognising how the Company has adopted both ESG reporting models and sustainability strategies in line with international guidelines promoted by the UN, OECD and the European Union and has adequately addressed environmental, social and security issues.
The outlook attributed to ASTM is “Positive“, foreseeing a Long Term Expected SER over 3/5 years of EE+ (Very strong).
In 2020, ASTM was included in the prestigious “A List” for the fight against climate change of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), a global environmental non-profit organization, which recognized ASTM leadership in the fight against climate change.
The Group was assessed on the basis of the actions introduced to reduce emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop a low-carbon economy, based on the data reported in the 2020 climate change questionnaire prepared by CDP.
Thanks to the massive measures put in place to fight climate change, ASTM has been included among the leaders in terms of the ambitiousness of its environmental objectives, actions to fight climate change and transparency.
ConsumerLab has included the ASTM Group’s Sustainability Report in the 2019 Future Respect Index.
The document has been identified by consumers among the 40 Sustainability Reports (out of more than 800 analysed) that are clearer and more effective in highlighting a business management respectful of the future, aware of the common good, careful to the general interest and aimed at social cohesion.
The assessment criteria was also based on the capacity of the Sustainability Report to involve consumers and make them conscious of the culture of sustainability.
