From ideas to facts: OUR 5 ESG PILLARS

1. EMPLOYEES

Our people are the key to our success Acting as a socially responsible employer is about providing a working environment that promotes individual performance within wider, shared team efforts. It means enabling a good balance between work and other important facets of life, such as rest and creativity.

It is also about making our workplace safe and welcoming for everyone. We are inclusive of people of all faiths, nationalities, and backgrounds, and we do not tolerate any form of discrimination. We stand for fair, attractive, and economically sustainable employment conditions

3. BUSINESS ETHICS

Integrity is at the core of our business operations, as it shapes our reputation, strength, and our clients’ confidence in our activities. We firmly believe that acting with integrity is not only the right thing to do but also crucial for long-term success. To ensure the adherence to ethical standards, we have implemented global policies such as our comprehensive Code of Conduct, which applies to all employees.

We hold our partners and suppliers to the same ethical standards we follow and we do not engage in business with entities that fail to meet these standards or compromise ethical practices.

4. ENVIRONMENT

As a highly digitialized, service-based company we have a relatively lower CO2 footprint compared with many other types of businesses. Nonetheless, we are committed to reducing our own emissions and helping clients do the same. To measure our emissions comprehensively, SPS has partnered with Climate Partner. This collaboration allows us to examine our supply chain and implement CO2 reduction strategies.

Using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the world's leading carbon accounting standard, the Climate Partner tool guides our five-step approach to demonstrably reduce SPS' climate impact.

Our investment in cybersecurity helps us, and the organizations we serve, ensure we are compliant with all relevant regulations and that we are constantly and verifiably improving. The Cybersecurity Team advises not only our colleagues but also our customers on what are the best possible alternatives on how to protect our, and their, data. When we speak about personal identifiable information (PII), we make sure that all our activities in relation with data processing are compliant with the data protection requirements applicable. 

We believe in creating a sense of safety alongside innovation, for our employees, our clients, and the wider communities we serve. We commit to being good guardians of our people, our data, and our planet.
