Atlantia joins global index of leading companies for Gender Equality
CET 13.44 Rome, 26 January 2022. Atlantia SpA has taken another step forward in its Sustainability journey, particularly on Diversity, Equality & Inclusion. The Company is included for the first time in Bloomberg’s recently updated Gender-Equality Index.
The index measures corporate performance on gender equality matters, and the quality and transparency of their public reporting, based on scores awarded across five pillars: female leadership and internal talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies and pro-women brand.
The index, whose update was announced today, includes 418 major global companies, judged to be the most committed to transparent practices and to creating a fair working environment. The companies operate in 45 different countries and regions, in over 10 different sectors, and have a total market value of over US$15 trillion.
To be admitted to the Gender-Equality Index, companies must provide the most transparent disclosures possible on women in the workplace, in their supply chains and in the communities in which they operate.
45% of Atlantia SpA’s workforce is already made up of women, whilst 42% of senior management roles are held by women. 40% of the members of the Company’s Board of Directors are women. This performance ranks the holding company among the leading largest Italian and European listed companies in terms the number of women in key management roles.
