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.
Acting to ensure the company’s and the region’s long-term sustainable development is one of Wihlborgs’ overall goals. We achieve this by working together with other participants and stakeholders as far as we possibly can. Sustainable business involves us taking responsibility throughout the value chain by creating long-term, sustainable relationships with our stakeholders and contributing to the development of each city through our properties.
We also help ensure positive, long-term development by getting involved in everything from infrastructure to mentorship, diversity and social innovations.
Since 2011, we have been reporting our sustainability work in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The Wihlborgs’ Sustainability Report for 2018 is in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option.
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.
