UN Global Compact
The sustainable management approach is reflected, among other things, in our membership in the UN Global Compact.
With more than 21,000 members, the UN Global Compact promotes awareness of the social and ecological responsibility of business.
Datwyler has been a member of the UN Global Compact since 2009, committing to meeting its social and environmental responsibilities and observing the ten principles on human rights, labour practices, environmental protection and anti-corruption.
UN Global Compact communication on progress
Since 2009 we are publishing a sustainability report according to the worldwide accepted Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards are the most widely used standards for sustainability reporting worldwide.
In the GRI Sustainability Report, Datwyler reports transparently on progress and achievement of objectives in the relevant sustainability topics. This is monitored by GRI and confirmed by its Materiality Disclosure Service.
By participating in CDP, our stakeholders receive standardized reporting on energy consumption
CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) operates a leading global system for reporting on energy and resource consumption on behalf of institutional investors.
Since 2013, we have been reporting our energy consumption and the resulting CO2 emissions to CDP. This provides interested stakeholders with standardized reporting on climate-relevant topics.
