Consideration and accountability
– Our social responsibility
Consideration and accountability in relation to the outside world, employees, customers, environment and society lie at the heart of Barslund’s operations. Our CSR policy permeates every part of our organisation, and we take our employees’ working environment as well as social, ethical and environmental issues into consideration on a daily basis. Our CSR policy applies to every company in Barslund Group.
Our CSR policy is incorporated into our overall business strategy. This ensures that we are always focused on how we interact with and affect our external environment. We enforce the same high standards on our partners and suppliers, who are required to sign the group’s Code of Conduct (which is based on our CSR policy).
Our CSR policy helps us to further develop our business. We know that building a good business requires long-term relationships with great partners, customers and suppliers. In our projects, we strive to see the assignments from the customer’s perspective so we can perform them to their complete satisfaction, while at the same time living up to the social expectations that exist for a group of our size.
Our employees are the cornerstone of Barslund Group and help ensure that our CSR-related work is manifested in practice. That is why we value their commitment and willingness to adhere to the CSR policy.
The CSR policy includes the following strategic focus areas (each of which is further divided into sub-categories):
- Working environment
- Social responsibility
We have set up a number of active goals for each focus area. The goals are reviewed on an annual basis during the first quarter of the year by our CSR group, which is comprised of the following members: The Managing Director, Head of Marketing, Head of HR, Head of QEHS and Head of Communications. At the annual review, we carry out a status check and examine the need for setting up new goals.
In our CSR policy, you can also read about our work with the UN’s 17 world goals for sustainable development.
