Snam's commitments

Snam's commitments are on many fronts, from those on the environment with the commitment for carbon neutrality to 2040, the industrial plan to support the energy transition, the reforestation initiatives with Arbolia, to the continuous commitment in the social with, among other things, the support to the supply chain and the numerous initiatives of Snam Foundation, also involving employees in corporate volunteering initiatives.

Snam recognizes the importance of responsible digital development in the country's ecological transition and for this reason closely follows the issues of Corporate Digital Responsibility. Attention to the social dimension is also demonstrated by the support to Global Compact initiative and by the activities of the Snam Foundation. The environmental dimension is the protagonist of the new Neutral Carbon strategy by 2040 and all ESG factors are monitored with three-year targets in the ESG scorecard.

Acting in a sustainable and responsible manner is an integral part of Snam’s business strategy, investment decisions and daily practice: in short, it’s an important development factor for all business sectors.

Since 2011, the company has redefined its strategic thinking by reinterpreting the business activities from the perspective of Shared Value, which sees an increasingly close integration between business and corporate social responsibility. Shared Value strategy has evolved over time, taking concrete form in the creation of Snam Foundation, a reality that acts to develop the social ecosystem also by building networks with institutions, businesses and third sector entities, involving Snam employees through corporate volunteering initiatives.

Furthermore, Snam:

  • pays attention to protecting its employees and suppliers, including through the development of specific programmes, such as "Snam4Safety", to promote and spread a culture of safety in the workplace and the adoption of innovative policies such as the Social Supply Chain policy;
  • has outlined its activities in the area of Corporate Digital Responsibility, recognising the importance of responsible digital development as a key enabler for the ecological and energy transition;
  • confirms its commitment to the continuous development of its people through Snam Institute, which ensured in 2021 the provision of more than 80,000 hours of training for the company's employees.


The environmental sphere remains the focus of attention with the Neutral Carbon strategy by 2040, the new Scope 3 GHG emission targets involving suppliers and investee companies, and the ESG scorecard in which targets have been set covering all ESG factors.

The commitment to sustainable growth is also confirmed by Snam's active support to the Global Compact, for its principles and Sustainable Development Goals.
