We have identified and prioritised three areas in which we have the greatest opportunity to influence our environment:
Our offer – the effects of our research, development and innovation contributes to sustainable development and increased competitiveness.
Our operations – our operations are managed sustainably and with long-term aims.
Business relationships – we provide our services in a responsible manner.
Based on these three areas, RISE’s Board of Directors has adopted three overarching business-related strategic objectives that also emphasise the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as a method for clarifying RISE’s contribution to sustainable development.
By 2020, 100% of our customer assignments will come with a Sustainability Declaration and be linked to one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This implies that we must know whether projects and assignments have an impact on sustainability and which of the UN’s SDGs they address.
During 2017, 15% of our assignments had a Sustainability Declaration.
By 2020, 10% of turnover shall be generated as a direct result of sustainability work. Based on our Sustainability Declarations, we shall measure the growth of sustainable projects undertaken by RISE. We shall manage our projects to ensure that they constitute responsible business to an increasing degree.
During 2018, we shall review our method for assessing results.
By 2020, we shall be one of the 10 most attractive employers in our category nationally.
As of 2017, we occupied place 32.
