Sustainability governance

NCC's sustainability work is governed by the Group's framework for sustainability and the Code of Conduct and other policies. NCC also supports a number of international initiatives and takes a stance on issues that are important to us. NCC believes that being transparent when reporting contributes to added value for our stakeholders.

Our sustainability framework shows NCC's focus areas in sustainability and with goals linked to each of these, we can make progress that is in line with our strategy and our vision.

GRI (Global Reporting Initiative)

NCC annually reports on our sustainability work in NCC's annual report. Since 2010, NCC has reported sustainability in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines. GRI is an international independent organization that provides the world's most widely adopted standard on for sustainability reporting. In the box to the right is NCC's GRI index, with references to where in the annual report information on each indicator can be found. If nothing else is stated, the information refers to the entire NCC Group. Clarifying comments are also provided in the GRI index for some indicators.

International principles

NCC complies with the UN Declaration on Human Rights, the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the OECD's Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and the Rio Declaration including the precautionary approach, which means that NCC undertakes to take precautionary measures to minimize environmental risk. NCC combines audits performed by its own staff with third-party audits carried out by consultants, including the framework of the UN Global Compact and NCC's membership of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI).
