Enhancing Customer Value, Reducing Environmental Impacts, and Assuming Social Responsibility
Sustainability has been at the core of Sika’s business ever since. More than ten years ago, the company started to align its sustainability strategy along environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations. Sika commits itself to genuinely sustainable added value along the entire value chain and strives for aligning operations and strategies with the universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption established by the United Nations Global Compact Initiative.
The company honors its responsibilities by offering sustainable solutions for energy-efficient constructions and environmentally friendly vehicles. It also implements numerous projects and measures aimed at boosting the Group’s business, social, and environmental sustainability.
Sika is committed to continuously measure, improve, report and communicate sustainable value creation. “More value, less impact” refers to Sika’s commitment to maximize the value of our solutions and contributions to all stakeholders while reducing risks and resource consumption.
Six strategic targets focus on sustainable solutions, climate performance, local communities/society, energy, water/waste, and occupational safety. Sustainability is one of Sika's key strategic pillars that is used as a competitive advantage to benefit all stakeholders.
Sika aims to run the business in a responsible, beneficial manner while serving the needs of all stakeholders –employees, suppliers, customers, partners, investors and the communities where the company operates.
