Webuild, the new group born in 2020 from Salini Impregilo, is a global construction player specialized in building large works and complex infrastructure for the sustainable mobility, hydroelectric energy, water, green buildings and the tunnelling sectors.
Leader in the Italian market, competing globally with the main players in the sector. Webuild is the expression of 114 years of applied engineering experience in five continents thanks to the talent of 70,000 people from over 100 nationalities.
The works built, both in Italy and in the world, tell the story of a group guided by the passion for building and the pursuit of excellence, which renewed its commitment to building a sustainable future by applying its know-how to build innovative and valuable works.
Recognized by the Engineering News-Record (ENR) as one of the top contractors in the water sector (dams and hydropower plants, water treatment plants, desalination and wastewater hydraulic works, irrigation dams), the Group is also a global leader in sustainable mobility (metros and railways, roads, motorways, bridges, ports and sea works) as well as one of the top 10 contractors in the environment sector.
At the end of 2019, new orders totalled €8.1 billion, with a total backlog reaching €36.2 billion. Some 85% of the backlog for construction orders involves projects tied to the sustainable development goals of the United Nations (SDGs), while 60% concerns the reduction of greenhouse emissions.
A signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, the Group also ranks among the leaders of CDP (former Carbon Disclosure Project)’s Climate Change program. It pursues sustainable development goals in every work it builds, supporting clients in strategic areas like the production of clean water and energy, building sustainable mobility systems and buildings with a low environmental impact.
Webuild, subject to direction and coordination by Salini Costruttori SpA, is headquartered in Italy and is listed on the Milan Stock Exchange (Borsa Italiana: WBD; Reuters: WBD.MI; Bloomberg: WBD:IM).
