ASSA ABLOY benefits from regular and open dialog on sustainability with investors and analysts.
The investment community is an important stakeholder group that offers input on their expectations, including best practice and risk management. Engaging in dialogue provides an important opportunity for ASSA ABLOY to communicate our way of working.
In 2012, ASSA ABLOY carried out the annual round-table discussions and several one-on-one meetings with this group. The dialog, which has been ongoing for several years, has resulted in important input to ASSA ABLOY’s strategies and daily work, as well as to how we communicate on these matters.
The topics raised in 2012 were quite similar to those raised in 2011. Examples include: risks and risk management in sourcing; implementation and follow-up of compliance with the ASSA ABLOY Code of Conduct throughout the Group and in acquired companies in particular; more detailed information on third-party audits in the supply chain and within the Group’s units, as well as further information on the standard of suppliers; resource efficiency and the constant effort to reduce ASSA ABLOY’s environmental impact in sourcing and production. ASSA ABLOY’s opportunities related to sustainable development continue to increase in importance.
The investment community would like ASSA ABLOY to further elaborate on how it creates customer value through products and solutions that contribute to efforts to improve sustainability performance. The Group is committed to continuing to improve its communication and reporting on sustainability performance to better meet the needs for information among stakeholders.
