Our Approach to Sustainability
GRI Content: G4-56
For SGS, sustainability is about using our scale and our expertise to enable a more responsible, balanced and sustainable future. As well as delivering services that promote sustainable development, we manage our sustainability performance through our global management system and develop sustainability programs, which inspire a wide range of initiatives across our affiliates.
Sustainability is a distinct and integral part of the SGS Business Principles. These are fundamental, overarching beliefs and behaviors that guide our decisions and allow us to embody the SGS brand in everything we do. Each Business Principle is owned and maintained by a designated Principle Owner at Operations Council level.
Each Business Principle is underpinned by a policy statement which defines our commitments, with more detailed operational policies describing the rules that must be observed by our employees and subcontractors.
Details of the operational policies and supporting programs that are specifically linked to sustainability are described below.
