31 July 2019 - This week the new regional agreements that define the Company Performance Bonus for 2019/2021 have been reached. One of the main innovations concerns the decision, shared by the Company and its Social Partners, to link one part of the new Performance Bonus to the achievement of sustainability and Green Pay objectives.
In fact, in addition to the technological performance and profitability objectives, ERG and its Social Partners have welcomed the challenge of "going green" by choosing to link the award of part of the performance bonus to:
• reductions in the accident frequency and severity indices;
• reductions in the use of plastic as part of a plastic-free approach;
• reductions in the use of printer toner cartridges.
The introduction of Green Pay measures places us in a leading position in the context of our industrial relations and confirms that our focus on the region and the environment stems from the promotion of the virtuous behaviour that each and every one of us engages in each day.
The new Sustainability and Green Pay system, designed with our Social Partners and involving the entire company workforce in Italy, represents a new tangible action pursued by ERG to promote the achievement of SDG 8 of the UN Agenda 2030 (decent work) with regard to the prevention of accidents, and SDG 12 (responsible consumption) as regards the "plastic-free" approach.
