Being a family-owned company, our name is tied to our business. Our aim is to be as proud of our brand as we are of the family name. Employees and partners shall truly feel that they are part of, or close friends of the family. Hence ESG issues have always had priority with us.
We strongly believe that the increased focus on new ESG requirements for traceability and transparency is to our advantage. We aim to live our values and prove compliance with the new standards by quantifying and recording all relevant data now and in the future.
Operating in several geographical markets and offering a wide range of services, our prime focus will be on the Sustainable Development Goal 13 – “Climate action”.
We plan to deliver and develop services that allow customers to reduce their emissions. This responsibility includes measuring and reporting our environmental performance, as well as setting concrete quantitative targets for future performance.
It is also highly relevant for us to integrate the Sustainable Development Goal 17 – “Partnerships for the goals” into our corporate strategy. We work in partnerships with our customers, suppliers and academic institutions. We are team-players.
Our aim is to find better solutions and create value through co-operation. It is a clear advantage for us and our business partners that we develop joint solutions to the ESG challenges. We invite our customers and suppliers to help define and communicate where and how we can improve individually and together.
