We create value. Our solutions are lasting. They give protection to people and buildings – for decades, sometimes even centuries. Our willingness to accept responsibility for our actions results from this awareness: responsibility for our employees, customers, suppliers and investors, our environment and society. In short, responsibility for everything with which CREATON has a direct or indirect relationship.
We accept responsibility for our employees. Their health and safety are our highest priority. We therefore invest regularly in industrial safety measures and preventive healthcare. But we also see our responsibility outside the company. We are also involved in promotion of the common good through donations and sponsorships. Sustainable cooperation with organizations, institutions and associations is especially important to us.
We take responsibility for our environment. No matter whether production, marketing or the dispatch of our products – we do everything possible to keep the environmental impacts of our business processes as low as possible. In the spirit of ecological sustainability, we constantly work on further optimising our procedures, using energy even more efficiently and keeping the consumption of natural resources to a minimum.
For us, acting in an economically sustainable manner means leading our company successfully into the future. We develop long-term strategies, minimise risks, promote innovation and tackle problems decisively. Because we are aware that our entrepreneurial actions have a direct influence on others: on our parent company, on the companies in our group, on suppliers, customers and other economic partners - and not least on the entire industry.
Our Group has long been aware of its Corporate Social Responsibility. At the heart of our mission, CSR is a part of our strategic plan for profitable and sustainable growth.
As with any other area of our business, our approach to sustainability is based on the principle of continuous improvement. It contributes to establishing a vision of our Group’s economic and human performance, environmentally friendly and in harmony with communities where we live and work.
Our Group is proud to present new 2021 CSR Report. The first such a comprehensive Report covering the whole Group best practices, several thematic KPIs and summarizing our first CSR strategic plan achievements. The 2021 Report demonstrates also the Group move towards a more sustainable, resilient and inclusive world by introducing our new CSR Strategic Plan 2030.
This CSR report aims to explain, in a concise and concrete manner, the relevance of our actions and our results obtained in 2021, of our successes but also of certain difficulties, in a context of pandemic and environmental, economic and societal transformation.
2021 was a year of both challenges and important movement toward achieving our strategic goals for the first CSR strategic plan 2015 – 2021.
As a Group, we are pleased with what we have achieved especially in the area of skill development, resource management and eco-design. However, we are aware of the need to boost our efforts, particularly those relating to CO2 emissions and reinforcing the safety culture in our Group.
Then, after one year of integration and sharing our best practices as a new Group, we worked together on our second CSR strategic plan to define even greater commitments and actions that respond to complex and interconnected global challenges. We want to be positive in the rapidly changing world and take responsibility as a larger Group, with more impact, by creating greater synergies to fasten our move to work towards more extensive, sustainable transformation.
