The transport sector has to tackle the challenges posed by climate change and air pollution. Through its Research and Development activity, Brembo monitors the continuous evolution of the sector, directing research into the best braking system toward solutions able to meet the challenges of the future such as electrification, autonomous driving and digitalisation.


Human capital represents the most important strategic heritage for Brembo, which firmly believes that the knowledge and skills of each and every one constitute the real competitive advantage behind the Group’s ability to innovate and pursue excellence when manufacturing all its objectives.


Investments in tangible fixed assets made by the Group mainly concerned purchases of plant, machinery and equipment aimed both at increasing the level of automation of production and at constantly improving the mix and quality of the factories.


Brembo's reference market is represented by the most important manufacturers of cars, motorbikes, commercial vehicles and racing cars and motorbikes. In 2022, Brembo’s consolidated net sales amounted to €3,629 million, with a 30.7% increase compared to €2,778 million in 2021, of which 72.2% is represented by car applications, 13.1% by motorbikes applications, 9.7% by applications to industrial and commercial Vehicles, while the racing sector made up 4,5% of it.




They are sustainability spokespeople whose mission is to spread a social responsibility culture, promote activities and support local initiatives relating to sustainability, in addition to interacting regularly with the CSR Global Central Function to share information, events and projects in favour of sustainable development.


This award is given to employees who come up with the best ideas in areas such as sustainable development at every level of the organisation.


To celebrate the 60th anniversary since its foundation and in partnership with Treedom , Brembo initiated a forest sponsorship project by donating a tree subscription to every person working for the Company, thus giving life to the first Brembo Forest in the world in Kenya, in the Victoria Lake region. There, trees were planted in a combination of stem and fruit species depending on local area needs. Brembo has been monitoring its forest health since 2021.​


Brembo monitors progress towards the targets in its sustainability workplan: “Turning Sustainability into Action”. Some of them are published in the Group’s Sustainability Report 2022. ​


Special training schemes for the Group staff are also provided to ensure compliance with and adherence to the principles of the Code of Ethics, the Anti-bribery Code of Conduct, the Antitrust compliance programme and the 231 Model.


The Board of Directors’ Diversity Policies and Criteria aim at ensuring the appointment of Board members who have an optimal combination of skills and professional background and form the diversity policies for the administrative body’s composition not only with regard to gender, but also experience, professionalism, age and other relevant aspects.


The ARSC has the task of supporting the Board of Directors’ decisions and assessments regarding the Internal Control and Risk Management System and the sustainability aspects related to Brembo’s activity and the dynamics of its interactions with all stakeholders.


The Board of Directors is also tasked with ensuring sustainable growth in the medium-to-long term through an adequate control and risk management system, including ESG risks having an impact on sustainability.


As the world moves rapidly in a direction where products and services are becoming "smarter" and technologies like artificial intelligence will become the new normal, the Group is ISO 27001 certified and complies with industry security standards.


Our People


Their unique characteristics and the beauty in their differences:people are always at the centre. Diversity is an invaluable resource that allows the expansion of ideas, just as the integration of thoughts and knowledge leads to unpredictable, breakthrough solutions.


The Group's people and their skills are the main pillar for the deployment of the company strategy. The strengthening of skills and the promotion of talent are the primary levers of people development and an enabling factor for the strategy that can anticipate and satisfy the demands of the business and create an identity culture for the Group.


For Brembo safety does not mean just ensuring its braking systems’ reliability; it is also about promoting the value of safety across all its manufacturing sites. A principle that is reiterated through organised management of workplace health and safety aspects, capable of meeting the needs of all interested parties.


The nearly 13,000 people who work for Brembo every day with dedication and passion represent the company’s strategic wealth. Their knowledge and skills are the real competitive advantage behind the Group’s ability to innovate and pursue excellence when manufacturing all its objectives.



Brembo pursues a strategy of international development centred upon the local area and the commitment to establish stable relations with local communities.


Over the years the Group has defined a structured process for managing suppliers that allows Brembo to develop strategic relations with a supply chain focused on continual innovation, quality improvement and sustainability.



Brembo’s capacity to innovate and exploit its own expertise as a strategic lever for maintaining its technological and commercial leadership at global level can also be gauged by the patents filed by the Group over time. ​


Brembo’s capacity to achieve significant results in all areas where the Group is committed to product and process innovation is the result of people involvement and more than 20 years of rening the Brembo Project Development System methodology.


To ensure maximum safety and quality of its products, Brembo adopts a preventive and proactive approach enabling the company to anticipate any problems and criticalities along the entire production cycle and take preventive correction measures.



Brembo has implemented a GHG emission reduction strategy that consists of a series of actions aimed at achieving short, medium and long-term objectives.​

This result in reducing emissions of CO2 was achieved thanks to energy efficiency-boosting projects and to the implementation of renewable energy solutions.​


When choosing energy sources, Brembo favours renewable energy sources over fossil fuels, by also increasing its self-production capacity, including through the installation of photovoltaic panels.


Brembo has developed and maintains an up-to-date Environmental Management System based on the ISO 14001 standard. The Group voluntarily submits its system for periodical assessments by independent third-party organisations to ensure its full compliance with international standards.


The Management System incorporates the requirements of standard ISO 50001 relating to energy management. It undergoes a voluntary annual audit by independent third parties to ensure its full compliance with the international standard.​



Brembo has contributed to strengthening the entrepreneurial fabric in its value chain, creating a network of satellite companies that guarantees additional employment and technological development. The economic value generated and distributed by the Group had a particularly significant positive impact in those areas characterised by levels of industrialisation and wealth distribution below the national average.


The war in Ukraine has forced millions of people to leave their homes to reach safer places, often beyond the country's borders. Poland has been one of the main destinations for Ukrainian refugees, for whom reception and first aid facilities have been set up. The "Safe Haven" project stems from Brembo's desire to bring concrete help to these people, giving priority to the most vulnerable who need specific care and attention, difficult to receive within large reception centres.


Over the years, Brembo has established close ties to the local areas where it is present, paying attention to the needs they express, and defining a path of joint development and growth, which leads the Group to provide tangible support to numerous projects and initiatives in favour of local communities in the areas of greatest social needs.​
