Report the highest governance body’s and senior executives’ roles in the development, approval,
and updating of the organization’s purpose, value or mission statements, strategies, policies,
and goals related to economic, environmental and social impacts
The Group aspires to be open and transparent as to how it operates in order to win and maintain the trust of its customers, employees, shareholders and other important social partners. Reporting and the governance structure are an integral part of this commitment.
HELPE’s corporate responsibility performance is dependent on all employees—from Chairman and CEO to the staff in each business unit, subsidiary, industrial facility and research laboratory. All of us at HELPE are aware of our corporate responsibilities through the Group’s Code of Conduct, but we also recognize that a central coordinating function is necessary in order to ensure that we have a comprehensive approach to corporate responsibility. The GCAD coordinates the development, implementation and communication of our global corporate responsibility approach and, with the strategic guidance of the Executive Committee, is responsible for reporting on the Group’s corporate responsibility performance. To support the Group’s strategy, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for sustainable development have been developed and implemented.
The Executive Committee defines the Group’s Sustainability Policy. The GCAD & GHSESD recommend the approval of sustainable development issues and are responsible for their implementation. The definition of sustainability issues, prioritisation of objectives, monitoring of activities and reporting results are discussed in senior management meetings.
In addition to the Executive Committee, other Board Committees oversee issues related to corporate responsibility, such as audit and compliance, fees, remuneration etc. View more
