We share values and goals with our suppliers, involving them in awareness-raising and development initiatives, sector-specific workshops on ESG, digital and cyber security issues, and training programmes and updates to foster widespread sustainability awareness throughout the supply chain.
We provide our professional family and our suppliers with training opportunities by offering ad hoc courses and innovative tools.
As part of the Open-es system initiative, we periodically involve suppliers and their employees in free training events to increase knowledge on ESG issues, and take the opportunity to discuss specific aspects with experts.
Below are some of the topics addressed in the series of free events under “Open-es Competenze ESG”:
We organize workshops focused on Human Rights as well as sector-specific workshops with our suppliers to explore ESG issues relevant to the specific product area. These workshops represent important opportunities to listen and exchange views with our suppliers, during which we discuss and address challenges and opportunities that are common to the different market sectors, identifying objectives and targets to facilitate the sustainable development of the production system.
Since 2023, we have also launched the 1st Open-es Camp, the training programme on key ESG issues dedicated to Small and Medium Enterprises and totally free of charge. This programme offers “on-the-job” training on sustainability issues through lessons and discussions full of case studies and testimonials from industry and finance.
