Kaba Group combines its long-term objectives for sustainable growth with the fundamental values it has developed over more than 150 years of corporate history. Building on these foundations, Kaba invests constantly in new technologies, in the quality of its products and services, in expanding its markets, and in its employees. Kaba’s sustainable approach to business is based on the long view taken by most of its investors and on the company’s enduring relationships with customers and business partners: more than two-thirds of Kaba’s turnover is generated from its existing customer portfolio.
In 2012 Kaba Group decided to make sustainability an even higher priority. The company was already involved in many initiatives on both a local and a global level, but it lacked clear and consistent metrics that would allow it to track progress. Transparent sustainability reporting in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the systematic capture of environmental and social data, and the production of an energy and CO2 balance sheet, including reporting as part of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), have corrected this deficit.
Kaba Group continues to be a member of the United Nations Global Compact Initiative. This commits it, along with 10,000 other companies around the world, to ten principles relating to human rights, fair employment conditions, the environment and corruption.
