We apply our raison d’être – Life Company – to all the choices of investment and allocation of resources: each decision is taken in consideration of ESG criteria. We have also identified challenging objectives in the social and governance dimensions in which we operate.
During 2022, our Leadership in Health & Safety programme has continued, offering all of our workforce the tools they need to work safely. At the same time, we have set up a Technical Academy to make the most of corporate know-how and promote an exchange of skills between different generations. Excellent results have been obtained in the sphere of diversity, inclusion and harnessing the potential of human resources with 25% of disabled staff included in personal development projects and 12% of employees with formally set objectives. Our ambition is to get both figures to 100% by 2030.
Measures to make the supply chain sustainable have continued, confirmed by the progress made in 2022, with 60% of orders placed with ESG-rated suppliers and the publication of a sustainable procurement policy statement. The Plan confirms our commitment to achieving, by 2030, a level of sustainability criteria in the vendor rating process above 30%, and 90% of orders placed with ESG-rated suppliers.
For us at A2A, innovation remains a key factor in the creation of an ecosystem that is open, shared and interconnected. In 2022, the Group entered the Eureka and Tech4Planet funds and assigned 17 million euros to the development of seven start-ups, focusing on the energy transition and the circular economy through the main venture fund, A+360. We spread the culture of innovation by fostering the shared and ongoing participation of employees in various initiatives (idea competitions, intrapreneurship programmes, etc.); in 2022, more than 3,000 employees were involved, making 342 proposals from which 10 ideas emerged and have become projects.
Our sustainable finance position was further strengthened in 2022. In the course of the year, we issued three sustainable bond loans for a total of about 1.8 billion euros. Furthermore, in June 2022, we endorsed a 410-million-euro sustainability-linked revolving credit line.
