working on solutions for tomorrow.
We use our creativity and skills in support of technological solutions and social challenges. We develop innovative products and systems for the society of tomorrow. We do this in various areas, such as healthcare, safety, sustainability and communication. We also help ambitious companies that can make the difference with useful innovations. We stay alert to new opportunities where we can apply our broad expertise to develop solutions that are useful for society.
making it specific and measurable.
CSV stands for Creating Shared Value. Value here relates to social issues, such as climate change, nutrition, health and safety. In the area of CSV, we have three focus points, each with two underlying themes:
Care for the planet
• CO2 neutral
• Sustainable design
Fit for the job
• Diversity & inclusion
Innovate to respond to social challenges
• Technological solutions with impact
• Start-ups & investments
This way we directly contribute to various Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. We support our words with facts and figures and this way make our social impact measurable and quantitatively meaningful.
''this is how we create impact.''
CSV goes a step beyond Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). CSR means taking society into account in what you do; Demcon’s focus is on solving social issues. We reinvest the proceeds we earn from this in socially relevant innovations or companies. That is CSV and it also forms the basis for our business operations. This is part of our DNA.
SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS GROUP
contributing ideas and testing.
At the beginning of 2022, we created a Sustainability Focus Group within Demcon. This is a group of colleagues that actively devotes its efforts to sustainability on the basis of its own initiatives and also contributes ideas for implementing Demcon’s Creating Shared Value (CSV) strategy. The Sustainability Focus Group currently comprises four members. Various Demcon branches have a representative in this focus group. This way we obtain the necessary input from all locations and that enables the focus group to function as the point of contact on behalf of and for all colleagues.
''from talk to action.''
In addition to our active focus on sustainability, we also assume the role of sounding board group for Demcon’s CSV activities. We take a critical look, try to get certain issues on the agenda and ensure that there is sufficient attention for the right sustainability topics. We would like to make the switch from ‘talking about’ to ‘real action’. We had the feeling that too little was being done at Demcon in the area of sustainability. But a lot is happening in this area; except it is not always visible. High time to disseminate this clearly and transparently.
CSV FOCUS POINTS
contributing to a better world.
The global social problems are great and demand high positive impact. As Demcon we aim to make a real difference and make a significant contribution in multiple domains. This demands extensive development and production capacity and the right, suitable support. We invest in this and constantly continue to improve ourselves.
