Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2021
CF Report has been selected by Auping to bring CSR reporting to the next level. CF Report therefore first developed a reporting framework. Central to this is how Auping creates value for all its stakeholders by:
- A circular value chain: the pathway to a fully circular product range.
- Energy-efficient operations: from factory to the use of space to transport, the pathway to fully sustainable production.
- Care for people: genuine consideration for employees and suppliers.
- Governance and risk management: the basis of sustainable business practices.
This structure is summarized on the basis of data in the value creation model and fully elaborated per pillar with dashboards, data visuals, text explanations and attractive interviews. Extensive attention is also paid to the sustainable DNA of the company.
The information is summarized and presented visually in an attractive digital environment.
This set-up has resulted in an innovative report that provides insight into the sustainable impact of Auping in a very transparent manner.
