At Wihlborgs, sustainability is the foundation of profitable business. For this reason, we apply a long-term approach to continuously develop in a sustainable direction. Our operations mean we are part of creating the preconditions for the Öresund region’s business community to grow and develop in the long term. This benefits both Wihlborgs and the companies who operate here. Our key role in the region also inspires pride and motivation among employees.
Since 2011, Wihlborgs has provided a sustainability report assurance statement under the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) which provides clear testimony of our intensified efforts with sustainability. The reports are a key step in our own development to clearly demonstrate that Wihlborgs is a sound and ethically minded company to work for and invest in. .
Since 2011, we have been reporting our sustainability work in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and since 2015 we have complied with the G4 guidelines. Sustainability issues are increasingly integrated into Wihlborgs’ day-to-day operations and permeate every part of the company to an ever-greater degree. We therefore see reporting our sustainability initiatives in the Annual Report as the natural next step and from 2016 we are reporting our sustainability initiatives in the Annual Report.
UN Global Compact
Wihlborgs has signed the UN Global Compact. The idea behind the Global Compact is to make companies aware of, and take an active responsibility for, ten internationally recognised principles in the four areas of human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. Among other things, this means that we have undertaken to incorporate the Global Compact’s principles in our corporate strategy and promote the principles as part of our corporate culture in daily operations. In our annual report, we present how we support and promote the Global Compact and its ten principles.
