Sustainability is integral to the Be Tomorrow – Leonardo 2030 strategic plan that promotes a renewed approach to the issue by considering business, governance, social impacts and environmental factors, from a long-term perspective and in-line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda.
