Afuture: the sustainability Roadmap

A route for 2015: Shaping our tomorrow

Autogrill has defined its Sustainability Roadmap for the 2012-2015 three-year time span: a strategic orientation of reference to integrate a sustainable approach with the management of the operations of the two business segment s (Food & Beverage and Travel Retail & Duty-Free); a guide towards innovation for the Group companies to identify, design and implement actions consistent with the objectives defined by Autogrill.

The primary objective of the Roadmap is the definition of new steps to improve the Group’s performance and favor, both inside and outside the organization, an innovation-driven process targeted to products and services that combines creativity and sustainability.

Also, in a negative social and economic context such as the one we are currently experiencing, it is important to continue to plan a strategy for the future, to be competitive and project the Group’s vision in all the countries in which it operates.

2011 represented a turning point, the peak of a path and the starting point for a cultural leap aiming at creating new business opportunities and maintaining the competitive edge that sustainability guarantees.

In this context, different initiatives have been implemented to enhance the value of the three sustainability areas — People, Product and Planet — comprised in the Afuture project and the new payoff summarizes the underlying spirit and principles.

AfutureFor us and for future generations the “Shape our Tomorrow” project represents the crossing of a bridge, the evolution from a philosophy to a strategy. This is our Roadmap, that requires the necessary and indispensable involvement of all the stakeholders with which the Group has established direct contact, because only if we are open to dialogue and exchange will we be in a position to create value, share it and enhance the reputation of the organization.

For the first time, the Roadmap defines strategic objectives for all the Group companies. These objectives must be pursued through the implementation of concrete programs. Employees’ health and safety, reduced consumption of energy and water, a redesign of the packaging material and reduced costs are the priorities in the program that Autogrill is committed to implementing in the 2012-2015 three-year time span.

A video was developed, downloadable from the www.autogrill.comwebsite, to offer an idea of the journey that the Group is pursuing.
