Approval of Consolidated Disclosure of Non-Financial Information for 2021
Brembo’s Board of Directors examined and approved the Consolidated Disclosure of Non-Financial Information for 2021 pursuant to Legislative Decree No. 254/2016.
This Disclosure, drawn up in compliance with the Guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI standards), describes the Company’s business model, the Group’s strategies and policies, the actions implemented and the results achieved in pursuing its sustainable economic growth, while taking account of the expectations of the stakeholders involved and seeking constant improvement of the environmental and social impacts of corporate activities. The Disclosure will be made available to the public on the Group’s website within the terms established by applicable laws and will be submitted to the forthcoming General Shareholders’ Meeting.
The first months of 2022 showed positive results in terms of volumes and full utilisation of production capacity. We are paying close attention to the developments of the Russia-Ukraine crisis. The direct impact on the Group is limited, as it has no production sites in the area and the exposure to local customers is moderate, nonetheless we are closely monitoring commodity supplies and production costs.
