About the report
Scope of the report
With great confidence and ambition, we have committed ourselves to a sustainability strategy with clear objectives on all three dimensions: business, environment and social, with a concrete action plan that has been implemented step by step, starting in 2021. Operating in a sensitive sector, that of mobility, we are aware of the negative impact generated by the main services we offer, but we want to make known our efforts towards a sustainable development of the business without harming the environment, as well as our contribution in the community to create a long-term positive impact. In the current report you will discover our 2022 initiatives that are driving our efforts towards achieving our stated targets.
The report includes a compilation of the resulting performance using both qualitative and quantitative indicators so that stakeholders can find useful information about our company. Where possible, and where we considered it relevant, we have compared indicators across multiple years, inserting data prior to the 2022 reporting year.
Our commitment to report annually on proposed targets and performance indicators is an important step in our strategy to contribute to a sustainable future, a more responsible society and a more developed community. At the time of reporting, the company reports on a voluntary basis and is not subject to mandatory criteria under Directive 2014/95/EU.

Definition of the reporting framework
The report is based on a double materiality process, carried out at company level. Both the perspective of the positive or negative impact of the company’s activities outside the organisation (inside-out perspective) and the close analysis of external influencing factors that could have an impact on the company’s financial capital (outside-in perspective) were analysed.
The analysis was carried out in three stages:
- Value chain analysis, with updates on relevant industry material themes, risks and opportunities, involving the organisation’s management,
- Consultation with the organisation’s internal and external stakeholders to identify the positive or negative impact of material issues relevant to the organisation, held in February 2023,
- One-to-one interviews conducted with both the organisation’s management and the management of some of the company’s clients. Throughout the interviews, the relevance to the business of the material themes was analysed from the perspective of identifying risks and opportunities in the form of external influences that could affect the business. Four interviews were conducted with management functions within the organisation and two interviews with managers from Autonom’s customers.
This defined the sustainability performance reporting framework.
We have not made any updates to the data reported at 2021 level as no corrections to the data presented in the previous Sustainability Report are necessary.
This report has been internally reviewed and approved by the CEO, as the highest body responsible for the accuracy of sustainability performance data and its applicability and relevance to the organisation. The reported performance is in line with the organisation’s sustainability strategy and action plan to achieve the stated objectives.
