In November 2020, the HUBER+SUHNER Group replaced its “Business and Ethics Code” with the expanded "Code of responsible business conduct". Responsible business conduct means that the company and its employees always live up to their own values, respect human rights, use resources efficiently, behave ethically, are honest and reliable, care for the health and safety of employees and contribute to the development of the communities around the sites.
Social responsibility at HUBER+SUHNER
In the reporting year 2020, HUBER+SUHNER introduced more than 25 performance indicators from the core subjects of human rights, labour practices, environment, fair operating practices, and community involvement and development, and gathered the corresponding data. This data will be published in the Sustainability Report 2020, which will be posted here in June 2021. On the one hand, the data represent the current state of HUBER+SUHNER regarding social responsibility. On the other hand, they form the basis for identifying opportunities for improvement, setting targets, and implementing measures.
In addition, workshops were held at all locations outside of Switzerland, in which HUBER+SUHNER managers were able to familiarise themselves with the basics, core subjects, and issues and define priorities for the company's social responsibility for the coming year.
