SUSTAINABILITY

Nowadays companies play an active role within their social context and they have to commit themselves to promoting the best conditions to increase life quality, in particular for future generations.

Protom regards sustainability as an essential part of its own business strategy. We believe we can achieve a continuous business success only if our growth will comply with the principles of environmental care and social accountability. This is why we have committed ourselves to producing eco-friendly solutions which can actually improve people’s life conditions. By applying standards and certification procedures and taking part into international initiatives, we aim at safeguarding and strengthening our company’s success, at growing more and more while having regard for social values and reducing our environmental impact.

Global Compact

United Nation’s Global Compact is a strategic initiative for companies wishing to align their business with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

More than ten-thousand organizations adhere to this initiative, including more than 7,000 companies from 145 different countries. Protom signed to adhere to Global Compact and thus has committed itself to comply with the ten principles based on universally-acknowledged standards set out by United Nations.

By adhering to Global Compact, Protom has committed itself to submit a yearly report on the progress made in the implementation of such principles and to further embed them into its own business through the development of guidelines, policies and specific initiatives.

SDGs

On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations officially came into force. Their final aim, clarified by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, consists in mobilizing a joint effort of the adhering countries to ensure the end of all forms of poverty and social inequalities as well as to tackle climate change.

Even though SDG’s are not legally binding, Protom regards the achievement of such goals as a social duty, as well as a key tool to ensure the growth of its own business.
