SIG reports progress on its Way Beyond Good journey
Date 03.28.2018 | Category: News
SIG’s CEO Rolf Stangl said: “Our bold Way Beyond Good ambitions are driving progress across all three of our responsibility pillars: company, sourcing and products. We have a long way to go, but I am enormously proud of the strides we have made in 2017. The latest rating from EcoVadis recognises our progress, placing SIG in the top 1% of the 30,000 or more businesses assessed on wide-ranging corporate responsibility topics.”
SIG stood alongside the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and other leading businesses in 2017 to pledge support for the Vancouver Declaration to ensure their use of forest materials contributes to the SDGs.
Through initiatives such as the Net Positive Project, SIG continues to work with partners to help drive progress in its own business and beyond. The company is also inviting input from external stakeholders through its new Responsibility Advisory Group.
Transparency is integral to SIG’s ethos as a responsible company. The company is committed to report regularly on performance related to its most material corporate responsibility issues, as identified through a detailed materiality assessment.
The CR Performance Update for 2017 provides an interim report on progress against the 2020 targets set out in SIG’s responsibility roadmap, including data on key performance indicators and key achievements from the year. It supplements the companies biennial full Corporate Responsibility Report, produced in accordance with guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative, which offers more detail on how SIG manages social and environmental issues.
Said Michael Hecker, SIG’s Head of Corporate Responsibility: “The CR Performance Update tells our story of the year. It showcases what we have achieved, but it also shows where we have more work to do. I am looking forward to reporting further progress in our full CR Report next year.”
