Our sustainable promises
To accelerate our journey towards a more sustainable future we launched our second annual Sustainability Report and its focus is on how we are incorporating sustainability management into our overall strategy. The report presents our current standing and the targets we aim to achieve. It also provides information on our overarching sustainability strategy.
Our 2022 report was developed in reference to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and covers all activities within the various business entities in the Royal Peterson and Control Union Group, regardless of their geographic location.
