The initiative took off in Italy and quickly extended to all subsidiaries globally, starting with some adhesives for ceramics and building concrete and will continue with the addition of more products.
To help the construction industry maintain high standards while reducing its carbon footprint, Mapei has developed an integrated approach based on specific hardware and software to overcome the difficulties involved in using cement with low clinker content and aggregates of varying quality throughout the various steps of production, transport and installation.
In 2022, we also carried out numerous energy efficiency upgrades of our production facilities. Subsidiaries around the world, from Europe to China and the United Arab Emirates, have installed photovoltaic panels that will enable the self-production of electricity from renewable sources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions generated at their sites.
None of this would be possible without almost 12,000 of our employees, selected via the Mapei competence model to form a winning team. The quality of Mapei’s policies and projects in the field of human resources management are of fundamental importance to the Group.
Our Company implements a meritocratic system that translates into equal opportunities, as evidenced by our position - for the third consecutive year - in the top part of the “Italy’s Best Employers for Women*” ranking.
Mapei is committed to supporting culture, sports, social and solidarity initiatives to promote growth and development in the regions in which the Group operates.
We do this in our own way with passion and engagement because we are convinced that sustainability means exactly this: contributing to the development and support of local communities with an eye to the future.
We believe strongly in the value of training, especially for young talents. For this reason, Mapei Academy
organises thousands of events, seminars, webinars and training courses at our premises or at the client’s premises and in collaboration with Trade Associations. We contribute to facilitating the sharing of knowledge among the various professionals in the building industry, making our skills and tools available to them and raising their awareness of sustainability issues.
The green transition is taking place globally. It represents a lever of competitiveness and attractiveness of talents. This is why we invite you to discover the seventh edition of Mapei’s Sustainability Report. It is a confirmation of our commitment to investing and growing responsibly: we want to embrace the circular economy, we care for people’s well-being, we work towards increasing social inclusivity, and we have adopted technologies that integrate and enhance human capabilities. Enjoy your reading.
