Secondary SDGs: 3, 7, 12 

In the annual report, Ferrari states a few points about the company’s progress and targets. Ferrari does address SDGs in their annual report but the content is scarce.

The emissions produced for car fleets have been reduced over the past 10 years, but “the total energy consumption within the Group for 2019 was 1,733,926 GJ, with an increase of 4.8% from 2018 (1,654,895 GJ)”.

In addition, “the Mugello racing circuit is located in an extremely important natural landscaping area.” The company is aware of their environmental footprint yet, they are still harming the environment with the amount of emissions produced and lack of consideration for biodiversity and important land. Given these issues, Ferrari has been given a negative “C” rating. 

Analyst Outlook: Negative

Emissions have increased and SDGs have limited description. Ferrari should continue to improve the sustainability of their products and achieve the relevant certifications.


Key Points

  • Few certifications, listings, and awards
  • Limited SDG and target descriptions
  • The company does not have a sustainability officer
