Sustainability is a key focus area at Coor—for us, sustainability includes business, social and environmental aspects. At Coor, we include sustainability in everything we do. We set clear and measurable targets for our social and environmental sustainability work—like we’ve always done in our business operations.
Long-term objectives in three dimensions
Coor strives to operate in a responsible and sustainable manner. Customers, employees, owners and other stakeholders must be able to feel confident that Coor will run its business in a professional, profitable, safe and sustainable manner over time. Coor creates value in three dimensions: financially, socially and environmentally. The overall objective is to ensure that the business is successful and generates the highest possible economic return, without compromising on respect for human beings and the environment. Our social and environmental goals are as essential to the management of our company as our business goals. For each dimension, we have defined our principal standpoints along with objectives for how we should conduct our business. Sustainable business is about taking long-term responsibility for the activities in which you are engaged.
A global perspective
Coor has high sustainability ambitions and a strategy that is based on the principles of the UN Global Compact and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The UN is addressing today’s biggest challenges through its 17 global SDGs. Coor wants to help advance the ambitious agenda that has been adopted by all countries in the world: to abolish extreme poverty, reduce inequality and injustice in the world, promote peace and fairness, and solve the climate crisis by 2030. Based on Coor’s materiality analysis and strategic goals as well as the company’s internal and external dialogues, eight of the SDGs have been linked to Coor’s sustainability management activities. It is in these areas that Coor has the greatest opportunity to help realise the goals from a global perspective.
