Responsibility is a prominent aspect of Etteplan's business
We are committed to the continuous development of our corporate responsibility and, in 2018, we are reporting on our responsibility for the first time using the framework of the Global Reporting Initiative. At Etteplan, corporate responsibility is part of our day-to-day work as we engineer hundreds of sustainable solutions for the world’s leading machinery and equipment manufacturers every year. We offer diverse career and development opportunities and long employment relationships to our personnel.
Global Reporting Initiative
At the end of 2016, we defined GRI indicators for our material responsibility aspects. They will guide the measurement of our corporate responsibility work starting from 2017 and our reporting starting from 2018. GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) is the world’s most widely used framework for reporting on corporate responsibility.
Etteplan determined the material topics of its corporate responsibility in 2015 by interviewing key external stakeholders and the company’s own personnel. The management validated the results of the interviews to create the company’s materiality matrix for responsibility, with the key topics being financial growth as well as personnel development and commitment. Etteplan’s corporate responsibility is led by the Senior Vice President of HR and Operational Development, who is also a member of the Management Group.
The Micro:bit project supported by Etteplan
Social projects, such as Micro:bit, a program to teach coding skills in schools, will remain important for Etteplan going forward.
The most relevant aspect of our corporate responsibility, from the perspective of our stakehold-ers as well as our business, is sustainable financial growth.
Having skilled and developing personnel with a high level of well-being is a basic requirement for a successful expert organization.
In our operations, Etteplan strives for open dialogue with all stakeholders. Etteplan takes stakeholders’ views and expectations into consideration and aims to respond to them in the best possible manner.
