Approach to the ESG issues

ESG areas affect company performance although they are treated as non-financial issues. More recently, ESG has been subject to regulatory requirements and must be reported as part of periodic reports.

The company is building its growth understood as sustainable development at the intersection of financial performance, commercial activities and ESG. Sustainability is about all round development and benefits for all stakeholders – shareholders, employees, customers and suppliers. It is rational to use resources in way that both serves the company and avoids harming others. Sustainable development is a lasting and long-term process, broken down into a series of initiatives and projects, implemented through continuous activities over a longer period of time.
