Mion - The finishing touch

Governance and Corporate Value

Mion promotes ethical and responsible business capable of generating sustainable value.

Over the years, Mion has increasingly integrated its commitment to sustainability with the company's strategy, developing governance tools to be applied both within internal teams and towards external stakeholders.

The Board's primary goal, both present and future, is financial sustainability to generate value for reinvestment in efficiency, well-being, and innovation.

These principles have led to the establishment of rules and models for growth not only of the company but also for all stakeholders involved: from employees to suppliers, from customers to local communities. An integrated vision is essential for fostering a healthy and lasting development.

Mion's Commitment to the 17 SDGs of the 2030 Agenda

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is an Action Program for People, the Planet, and Prosperity, adopted on September 25, 2015, by the United Nations in collaboration with the Governments of its 193 Member States, including Italy.

In particular, the call for collective commitment urges businesses of all sizes and sectors to play an active role in making a significant contribution to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda. This involves adopting new models of responsible business that prioritize Economic, Social, and Environmental Sustainability, as well as Governance, in decisions related to investments, innovation, technological development, and the creation of multi-stakeholder networks.

Mion has embraced this call to action and, mindful of its role as a business, has chosen to align with the 2030 Agenda by integrating sustainability into its corporate strategy. The commitment involves taking concrete actions in the way the company operates to contribute to a total of 9 out of the 17 SDGs for Sustainable Development.

Distributed Value

Economic success is one of the key elements of a company's overall sustainability, positively influencing its ability to grow, innovate, and contribute to society. The produced value and its distribution illustrate how the company economically impacts various categories of stakeholders. For sustainability reporting, it is crucial to examine how this value remunerates all stakeholders of the organization.

The table illustrates the Total Value Generated, considering various activities and sources of income, by summing up the revenues generated from all aspects of the company's operations: core, ancillary, extraordinary, and financial. 

From the Total Value Generated, we can derive the Value that the Company distributes to its Stakeholders and what it retains. As a manufacturing entity, a substantial portion is directed towards the supply chain; nevertheless, Mion has chosen to manage the entire production cycle internally, providing greater control over quality, production flexibility, and the ability to respond rapidly to customer needs. This approach requires significant investments in machinery, specialized personnel, and production facilities, the economic impacts of which are reflected in the distribution of value.
