WE BUILD SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS WITH OPENNESS, TRUST, COLLABORATION AND SELF-CRITICISM
We believe that sustainability makes fair and profitable business possible
Edita Prima’s corporate and environmental responsibility strategy is based on the three principles of ESG criteria (Environment, Social, Governance). These guide our daily decisions towards more sustainable actions and profitable growth. For us, the well-being of planet Earth, and people we work with, are equally as important as our financial success.
We have been classified as a carbon-neutral company since 2010 and our very first environmental report was published already in 2004. As a considerate operator with a proven sustainability record we understand our social responsibilities, care about the critical living conditions of the future generations and treat our employees, customers and partners as righteously as we possibly can.
Our goal is to continue supporting green transition within our industry, reduce our own emissions significantly and encourage all of our stakeholders towards eco-friendlier, more humane and softer business cultures. In addition to lowering our own carbon footprint, we provide our staff members fair working practices, offer them comprehensive training options, follow our ethical guidelines closely and monitor all of Edita Prima’s activities with regular surveys.
We are 165-year-old company that remains deeply committed to modern information security, comprehensive data protection and smooth customer communication. We believe that a compassionate and profitable business, built on the ideas of openness, trust and self-criticism, most certainly can be achieved.
There has never been a better time, or a greater need, for sustainable-driven collaboration than now.
Our long-term sustainability strategy is based on universally recognized ESG standards
ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) is a globally known acronym which refers to the environmental and social responsibilities of companies and their good governance policies. We believe that our continuous ESG commitment makes versatile, considerate and successful business culture possible.
REDUCING CARBON FOOTPRINT
We reduce Edita Prima’s (and our customers’) environmental impact by systematically investing in improved sustainability expertise. One logical early step, for example, has been transitioning to renewable electricity. Since 2010 Edita Prima has been classified as a carbon-neutral company which is primarily based on our continuous carbon footprint reduction that is monitored by regular measuring and reliable reporting, and secondarily on compensation models that we use.
CULTURE OF OPPORTUNITIES AND COLLABORATION
We are committed to building a company based on the elements of trust and transparency that provides learning opportunities, nurtures talent, offers inspirational leadership and rewards our staff members fairly for their achievements. We appreciate diversity and train our employees, measure their well-being, report the results openly and use whistleblowing channels for possible abuse cases. Our guiding principles are an essential part of our daily working practices and long-term culture.
TRANSPARENT OPERATION MODELS
We unconditionally respect the principles of good governance. We follow the required statutory requirements and always communicate openly. Our ongoing sustainability measures comply with officially recognized international operating principles, guidelines and standards such as the UN Global Compact and the ISO 14001 environmental management standard. Edita Prima has been awarded the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate for the top-class information security management system. Regular monitoring, transparent customer communication, proven client satisfaction and up-to-date data security will continue to be the foundation of our success.
SECURING PROFITABLE GROWTH
We want to conduct a sustainable, fair and profitable business while providing our stakeholders high-quality products and top-level services that help us form and maintain mutually respectful client relationships. Efficient internal controls safeguard our data and guarantee trustworthiness of information used. Steady risk monitoring enables us to react and manage potential menace situations preventively. We are committed to running our business effectively aiming for long-term financial success and responsible growth.
This is how we reduce our carbon footprint
Edita Prima has taken concrete steps and substantial actions towards a more sustainable business culture for two decades. Our first environmental report was published already in 2004 and since 2010 we have been classified as a carbon-neutral company which is based on the combination of carbon footprint reduction, carbon footprint monitoring and carbon footprint reporting as well as compensation mechanisms that we use.
Our primary goal, of course, is to reduce the overall carbon footprint caused by all of our business-related activities. Vast majority of our emissions currently origin from production phases and we are deeply committed to further developing our productional operations to turn them as harmless and environmental-friendly as possible. To achieve that we closely monitor the effects of our operations annually and simultaneously guide our clients towards more effective customer communication models with the aim of minimizing both the paper usage and the amount of waste material generated.
The first step of our sustainability actions is minimizing the carbon footprint. The second step is verifying the numbers with solid reporting. Finally, we offset any remaining emissions through reliable compensation mechanisms which means buying climate units from the voluntary carbon markets. Our calculations are ultimately reviewed by the Swiss carbon finance consultancy company South Pole Group which subsequently has granted Edita Prima the right to use its prestigious climate neutrality certificate.
