A word from our CEO
March 13, 2018
Close to 100 years in the industry is quite an accomplishment, and we’re proud to say that although our communication of specific CSR initiatives has been modest, we have a history of operating our business in a socially responsible manner. It is important for us to achieve a positive impact on society as a whole while maximising the creation of value for our customers, employees, shareholders and other stakeholders. We have a green profile by nature, working to promote sustainable energy solutions and induce initiatives to the benefit of our society. We have continually increased our competences when it comes to supplying green solutions to our customers. We walk the talk by proactively reducing CO2 emission in our business.
In 2017, we walked an extra mile to involve our employees in our sustainability efforts. In this COP, you’ll be introduced to some of the many initiatives that were launched throughout the group, and I am pleased to see how sustainability is on top of mind. An important topic on the agenda for many of our employees.
In the Solar Group, we have made a formal decision to conduct business ethically and to contribute to sustainable development. Our commitment to the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anticorruption remains firm. This communication on progress also represents Solar Group’s compliance with sections 99a and 99b of the Danish Financial Statements Act.
We are a company constantly developing, and naturally, that challenges our energy use. We will continue to plan and introduce initiatives that will consolidate the sustainability mindset in our business. We have an ongoing dialogue with our suppliers to cooperate for a joint socially responsible approach to sourcing. We will continue to be a dedicated sourcing and services partner to our customers, providing them with sustainable advantages and supporting the continued sustainability progress wherever possible.
