Planetek Italia Srl - Benefit Company
In April 2021, Planetek Italia has reinforced its commitment to promoting a generative business model pursuing higher standards of well-being for people and environmental protection, evolving into a "Benefit Company", and stating the purposes of common benefit in the corporate statute.
For Planetek Italia, it means to adopt a business model that aims to operate in a responsible, sustainable and transparent way towards people, communities, the environment, cultural and social assets and activities, organizations and associations, and other stakeholders.
Planetek's Sustainability Report
In 2022, we joined Assobenefit, the Italian Association of Benefit Companies, and published the first Sustainability Report.
The sustainability assessment tool we have chosen is the Open-es digital platform, developed by Eni, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Google Cloud. Open-es allows companies to measure Sustainability Performance in 4 dimensions: People, Planet, Prosperity and Governance Principles. A model based on the 4 Pillars of the Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics released by the World Economic Forum.
The results of the first report show an excellent sustainability performance level of Planetek Italia, already at the highest levels among companies in the ICT and Aerospace sector. This is just the starting point of our future improvements and challenges.
Space and Sustainability
On 21 November 2022, Planetek was one of the first 40 European companies to sign the 'Statement for a Responsible Space Sector', an initiative of the European Space Agency aimed at providing a basis for the sustainable development of the space sector and increasing the contribution of space activities to the benefit of society.

Quality, Environment, People
Planetek Italia has adopted a "company system" instead of a generic "quality system" in order to manage each activity in accordance with detailed internal rules, and converting these rules in informatics procedures.
According to Planetek Italia, Quality is a philosophy, a way to operate which includes all the activities of the company and becomes a clear definition of customer's requirements, that is a "project" approach to the orders, for a subdivision of the activities into "work packages" defining responsible, output, input, work times and verifications. Such a methodological way of work allows the planning of activities, the respect of times and specifications of the systems realized.
The organization of the company system in compliance with the ISO rules has led Planetek Italia to pass the inspection on January 14th, 2000, and to receive the ISO 9001 certification for "Design, realization and servicing of geographical information system (G.I.S.), cartographical and Earth Observation data processing (E.O.). Design and delivery of training services regarding geographical information system and Earth Observation.".
