Here at NIBE we work to create added value for our stakeholders – but without compromising on our commitment to quality, sustainable development and corporate social responsibility. The values we embrace are based on international conventions and guidelines, but more importantly, they are also deeply rooted in NIBE’s long and proud tradition of responsible entrepreneurship.
Guidelines and reporting
In 2011 we undertook a comprehensive update of the Group’s work on sustainable development. The system for reporting sustainability data was extended and we now report in accordance with the level C guidelines issued by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Full reporting data are available on our corporate website www.nibe.com.
The review resulted in a new Code of Conduct and new policies in a number of key areas. The guidelines were collated under ‘Our Values’, which – together with ‘Our Business Principles’ – forms an integral part of ‘Sustainable Value Creation’.
‘Our Business Principles’ and ‘Our Values’ have now been made available in 14 languages to reach all of our employees. In addition, senior management staff in all of the Group’s companies invested much time and effort in 2011 in informing all employees about the content of these documents and their implication for our day-to-day work.
Our corporate values
By following the guidelines in a number of key areas as laid down in our corporate values, we can
- contribute to the sustainable development of society, including quality of life aspects such as good health and social welfare
- meet the expectations of our stakeholders
- comply with relevant laws and appropriate international codes of conduct
- integrate the concept of corporate social responsibility into the work of the entire concern and apply it in our dealings with co-workers, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.
