Acque Bresciane certified for gender equality

Acque Bresciane SB obtained voluntary certification for gender equality according to the reference practice PdR/UNI 125:2022 on October 20, after successfully passing the audit conducted by the accredited body Bureau Veritas Italia.

The UNI/PdR 125:2022 came into force on March 16, 2022 as a document published by UNI, which was the result of discussions at the Working Table on Gender Certification of Enterprises, envisaged by Mission 5 of the NRP and coordinated by the Department of Equal Opportunities with the participation of various departments.

The reference practice defines specific KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to measure organizations' commitment. The goal is to close any gender gaps in hiring, treatment and wages; support parenting and work-life balance, but above all to affect the culture of companies and achieve sustainable and lasting changes over time.

Acque Bresciane's award-winning practices include attention to female workers and workers who are new parents, with salary supplementation during parental leave and an increase in paid leave days for fathers, in favor of their greater involvement in childcare.
