How we work with sustainability
In KIRKBI, sustainability is a foundational layer for all business activities - and defined by the KIRKBI Fundamentals. The KIRKBI Fundamentals serve as our compass.
As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, we will continue to demonstrate our progress both within own operations as well as investment and ownership activities.
Our Promises set the direction
As an integral part of the KIRKBI Fundamentals, we have four promises to ourselves and to those partners who work with us.
In short, they capture how we should act every day and define how we regard play, people, partner and planet as integrated and equal parts of how we succeed with our mission. And they set the direction for how we raise the bar for responsible ownership and investing.
Mutual value creation.
To build partnerships that enhance mutual value creation, entail openness and trust. Partners should feel energised and inspired from their involvement with KIRKBI.
To create a positive impact on the planet through responsible investments and ownership - a commitment to society to keep earning a trusted position.
KIRKBI COP report
In 2019, we became a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact – the world’s largest voluntary network for sustainable business conduct – and thereby committed to the Ten Principles of The Global Compact. As KIRKBI grows, we wish to increase transparency towards all our stakeholders on how we progress our sustainability efforts.
As a signatory to the Global Compact, we communicate our sustainability progress and we publish an annual Communication on Progress (COP) report.
KIRKBI CO2 emissions
As the data on the CO2 emissions generated by own operations in 2019 were not available at the time of the publication of the COP Report for 2019, we hereby publish the KIRKBI Carbon Inventory for 2018 and 2019. The 2020 Carbon Inventory will be released mid-2021.
