Special Award for Sustainability Management

This company has established clear non-financial indicators in its VISION 2030 plan in the form of KPIs and targets linked to materiality. We sensed a strong commitment on the part of its management team, with the company even going so far as to name the executive officers responsible for carrying out these operations.
