The main Health and Safety objectives of SWS are aimed at:

SWS considers environmental protection to be a priority objective, to be pursued by defining appropriate strategies in full compliance with current legislation, with a view to continuous improvement.
The main environmental objectives of SWS are dedicated to:
- Pollution prevention and respect for the environment;
- Protection of heritage and environmental assets, reducing and optimizing the consumption of resources;
- Minimization of the environmental impacts related to its activities, to those of suppliers and contractors;

To do this, SWS has adopted a specific organizational structure, with coordination at Group level, which oversees and manages the environmental, health and safety aspects in all workplaces and company facilities (construction sites, workshops and offices) and a system of responsibility for the employer and his delegates.
The Delegations of functions on the aspects of Environment, Health and Safety are shared and disclosed internally by the organization and are available, upon formal request, also to the external third parties concerned.
The values of Environment, Health and Safety and the fundamental principles are expressed in the Environment, Health and Safety Policy of the Sofinter Group.
