Responsibility – solid foundation for business

Investors are interested in companies that focus on long-term sustainable value creation. This means having sound and proven policies and systems in place to manage the full range of environmental, social and economic risks. Companies everywhere are finding that embracing responsible practices leads to lower risks, a healthier corporate culture and greater long-term profitability. Moreover, a reputation as a responsible company boosts employer brand, raises spirits, promotes responsible business conduct, and is simply good for business.

Deeds before words

Vague sustainability claims have increased mistrust among stakeholders. Companies that don’t operate responsibly and transparently disclose their economic, environmental and social impacts and risks are facing increasing attention. Credible responsibility disclosure is an important component of stakeholder relations. Ultimately, it gives companies their license to operate.
