Sustainability and social commitment
Our mission for the environment and our society
Driving the energy revolution, addressing the impacts of climate change and promoting the sustainable use of resources are the key drivers and motivators behind our work. The responsible use of the earth’s resources is ingrained in our philosophy.
Our commitment is evident in the development of solutions that empower our customers to make informed decisions and act responsibly. With over 60 years of experience in digitally capturing the changing world, analysing and visualising data, we strive to contribute to a more sustainable future.
Everything we do is based on making a positive contribution to the environment, society and each individual.
Environmental protection and efficient use of resources
We are voluntarily committed to the principle of sustainability, an active approach to environmental protection and the efficient use of resources. This includes using renewable energy, promoting e-mobility, conserving resources and using environmentally friendly and recyclable materials.
Sustainable solutions and services
We empower our customers to make more sustainable decisions and take action for the environment, so that together we can help reduce the impact of climate change.
A company with familiar and fair working conditions
We cultivate a corporate culture that is appreciative and free from discrimination. We also offer a wide range of benefits and social services to all employees and regularly donate to international, national and local charities.
Ethical business practices
We implement ethical business practices by, among other things, acting with integrity and ethical behaviour towards colleagues, customers, partners and suppliers, and by respecting labour and human rights, including in our partner companies and suppliers.
Taking responsibility in the supply chain
Through sustainable procurement and the involvement of our suppliers in the KISTERS Code of Conduct, we actively take responsibility in the supply chain.
We see cyber security as a key element in protecting our customers’ data, ensuring their and our business continuity, and securing our jobs.
IT solutions for sustainable resource management
The future of our planet requires bold decisions more than anything else. To turn those decisions into visionary action, they need to be based on data, modern technology and smart ideas.
Our job is to deliver that data. We provide IT solutions and services that help our clients collect, process and understand the data they need. In doing so, we enable them to sustainable actions and decisions.
Together, we are helping to reduce the impact of climate change so that we can all look to the future with confidence.
