Sparinvest’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy defines the framework for the strategic areas we have chosen to focus on for our social responsibility. Our ambition to make a positive contribution to a socially sustainable development is fully in line with Sparinvest’s values, which are based on spirit, thought-fulness, decency and precence, consideration, orderliness and enthusiasm.
Sparinvest considers CSR to be value creating rather than an expense. To a greater or a lesser extent, responsibility in the chosen focus areas should be integrated into every facet of the business to give peace of mind to our employees, investors, partners, customers and owners. Our goal is to anchor CSR in every part of our organisation and our value chain, from handling data, servicing and advising customers, human resources, and climate and environmental considerations, right through to local social initiatives and – last but not least – our approach to investing.
With more than 100,000 investors, Sparinvest is deeply rooted in local financial institutions. Through these, we have a great responsibility to ensure investor confidence and to create an interest in contributing to local initiatives for social responsibility. We have also established long-term, mutually satisfying customer relations among institutional investors, both on a national and international level.
We have defined CSR ambitions for the following six areas:
- Environment and climate
- Suppliers and purchasing
- Employee relations
- Community and commitment
- Responsible investment
- Structure of the Board of Directors
