Integrated Policy for Quality, Occupational Health and Safety, Road Traffic Safety, Environment and Management of Corrupt Practices
OUR MAIN AIM IS TO CONSTANTLY IMPROVE ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE, HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK, ROAD TRAFFIC SAFETY (RTS) AND THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION
“The Group’s opening to global markets has increased competition with new global competitors who have already taken many steps forward in sustainability.
Today, the Group is the world’s third largest operator of toll highways. A significant milestone in the development journey but also a great responsibility to all global users.
In this context, responsible behavior is pursued as a factor of competitiveness and continuous improvement and, naturally, success.
We aim to create value. Value for the Company, its major and minor shareholders, employees and their families, suppliers, the communities and organizations we deal with every day.
The relationship that a company must maintain with the territory is increasingly an evident and close one. All of this requires a change in the very way of doing business and we are required to spread a different culture within the company where respect for the environment, for the health and safety of workers and for the social aspect becomes more and more a natural factor of action.”
(from Group Sustainability Report 2016)”
To achieve this goal, SALT:
- ensures the responsibility and involvement of the company management, broadly understood to include the Owner and the indications expressed for the highway sector by the Group;
- promotes the involvement and empowerment of all personnel and Workers’ Safety Representatives, who work on behalf of SALT and promotes the knowledge of risks, objectives and targets for quality, environment, health and safety at work, road safety and the fight against corruptive phenomena, and also the adoption of education, information and training plans in order to increase skills and awareness;

- It is committed to assessing the external context in order to highlight how the characteristics of the environment in which SALT operates can favor the occurrence of corruptive phenomena both internally and externally towards business partners.
The integrated quality, environment, occupational health and safety, road safety (RTS) and anti-corruption management system is one of the tools SALT uses to achieve this goal.
The adoption of the integrated management system is a strategic decision taken by SALT, which is committed to using this IMS to continuously improve its effectiveness and ensure business continuity. During the management review meetings, the adequacy of SALT’s “corporate policy” is verified, the annual objectives and targets of SALT’s integrated management system are defined, formalized consistently with the scenario determined by the Context Factors, the Financial Plan and the commitments signed with the Grantor, and their progress is verified.
