The commitment to UN Global Compact is a natural extension of our corporate DNA. As a company we have supported the modernization of Danish society during the last 40 years by developing state of the art digital solutions for local and central authorities.
KMD coordinates efforts in CSR through our CSR board headed by KMD’s CEO Eva Berneke and attended by the VPs of Communication and Marketing, Human Resources, Legal, Business Development and Procurement.
KMD’s CSR-board determines the guide lines and goals for KMD’s CSR initiatives and monitors and drives their implementation.
We want to integrate sustainability in the development of our business as a whole. In KMD we are proud of our tradition of supporting central parts of the Danish welfare state. Danish citizens interact with KMD products each day from cradle to grave. Therefore it is natural for us to actively participate in the societies in which we exist and to accept the responsibilities and challenges this entails. In KMD we acknowledge CSR to be a continuous effort and hence we want to incorporate sustainability into our business and product development.
In KMD we have put CSR at the top of the agenda. Our CSR strategy is a direct extension of our business strategy. KMD focuses on digital development of Danish society and the challenges this pose. Based on this premise our strategy has four overall themes: We develop society, we develop employees, we develop the environment and we develop our suppliers. It is in these areas that we as a company can have the biggest impact on the societal challenges that we face today.
The commitment to UN Global Compact is a natural extension of our corporate DNA. KMD joined the UN Global Compact initiative in November 2011. UN Global Compact is the world’s largest association of businesses that incorporates sustainability into their daily operations. Members are required to adhere to the 10 principles of sustainable corporate governance. The 10 principles are based on established international regulations in areas such as human rights, employee rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption.
