Corporate Social Responsibility

Our strategy is aimed at ensuring that the design and execution of the solutions that we realize globally are as sustainable as possible.

Since 2009 we have published a CSR Report in addition to an Annual Report. 
In our CSR report we account for material and relevant non-financial aspects of our performance arising from our strategy and core activities. We report in accordance with the international guidelines set out by the Global Reporting Initiative (version G3-1). In selecting the performance indicators and compiling our CSR report we take into account the information requirement of our main stakeholders.

Our strategy is aimed at ensuring that the design and execution of the solutions that we realize globally are as sustainable as possible. In order to safeguard our social, societal and environmental responsibility as much as possible, our CSR policy focuses on the key areas where our impact is greatest:

  • Our social performance is mainly concerned with our employees and our efforts to promote their safety, self-development opportunities and well-being.
  • Our societal performance is expressed in contributions to local communities, investment in education, research and knowledge transfer, and social sponsorship and donations.
  • Our environmental performance is mainly concerned with limiting and preventing a negative impact on the environment, and involves us focusing on the further expansion of our environmental expertise, the provision of eco-dynamic designs and the ongoing investment in and use of environmentally friendly equipment.

In our 2011 CSR report we provide details of our performance in the aforementioned areas. Our 2011 CSR report is available on this website.
