Compensation policy and objectives

Aims and Fundamental Principles

The Company defines and applies a general policy on remuneration designed to attract, motivate and retain resources which possess the professional qualities needed to effectively pursue the Group's objectives.

The policy is defined in such a way as to align the interests of management with those of shareholders, pursuing the main goal of creating sustainable value in the medium to long-term period by consolidating the link between reward and performance, individuals and the Group.

The guiding principles adopted for defining the remuneration policy for the top management are:


  • between the level of remuneration offered and the complexity of the role performed;


  • and the relative weight of each office, with the objective of guaranteeing standardised remuneration comparisons and analyses that are consistent with the development of the Group's organisational framework over time;


  • for the reference sector as well, in order to check the consistency of the company's remuneration scheme, and its capacity to both attract talent and retain directors;


  • of economic-financial performance, financial solvency, shared value creation (with the economic and financial indicators of all development projects aligned with the goals defined in the 11 SDGs identified by the United Nations), customer satisfaction, and ESG sustainability in defining both short and long-term variable incentive systems;


  • between the Company's risk profile and the executive compensation package mix.

The Group's remuneration policies are defined in order to guarantee the following aims:

  • Increasing value for shareholders
  • Achieving sustainable and stable results in the short and medium-long terms
  • Retaining employees who hold positions that are strategic for governance and the business
  • Promoting the corporate mission and values, also in terms of sustainability.
