Our SDG targets and activities
Target 4 Quality education
At Netcompany, we are a strong believer in education and the continuous development of skills throughout one’s life. We take great pride in developing our employees each day of their career at Netcompany, through our Netcompany Academy, mentoring, and more. We also believe that one of the main challenges facing society today is a lack of digital competencies. This is why we want to share our knowledge and educate and develop more digital talent. We do so by engaging in close collaborations with universities and organisations, as well as sharing our knowledge at events and on our digital platforms.
Target 5 Gender equality
At Netcompany, we offer equal opportunities for men and women. We have a transparent and fair recruitment process, progression, and development setup, ensuring that employees are hired, promoted, and evaluated based on qualifications and skills. Also, employees with similar experience and performance ratings are paid equally, irrespective of gender. Netcompany engages in a long list of initiatives aimed at getting more girls and women interested in IT and attracted to the IT industry. In 2021, we have taken on new initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion and set up new targets to measure and follow up on diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Target 8 Decent work and economic growth
At Netcompany, we believe that digitising societies is key in sustaining future growth and prosperity in our societies. Therefore, we keep working towards technological upgrades and creating innovative solutions. We can do this thanks to our talented labour force. Netcompany’s remarkable growth generates hundreds of new jobs each year, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, contributing to the general education and training of new IT talents and the overall reduction of unemployment rates. A significant number of jobs are occupied by graduates, which contributes to the overall reduction of the unemployment rate within the youth labour force. At Netcompany, we’re committed to ensuring a safe and healthy working environment for all our employees in respect of our values, legal obligations and the rights of our employees. This includes fair and equal wages, rest and leisure, safe and comfortable working environments, and the clear renunciation of the use of child and forced labour.
Target 9 Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Netcompany builds digital solutions that support the development of innovative, digital, and sustainable infrastructure in society. Our solutions are built on secure platforms that are flexible and scalable, with information being accessible at any time. We also engage in ongoing dialogue with governmental boards and associations that focus on how digitisation can build resilient infrastructure and help support sustainable industrialisation.
Target 10 Reduced inequalities
At Netcompany, we believe that all people are equal. We also know that a diverse workforce equals an innovative workforce, and that happy employees who feel included and accepted for who they are perform better. Therefore, we actively invite everyone to apply for vacancies in our company irrespective of age, culture, nationality, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities, experience, political and religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and other social identity attributes. Through our digital govtech solutions, we also contribute towards making health information accessible to all citizens in a country and the disbursement of social pensions, child benefits and more.
Target 12 Responsible consumption and construction
Netcompany is dedicated to preserving the environment and has internal procedures to secure sustainable waste management and reduction of resource consumption. We continuously look into decreasing our energy and water consumption, as well as recycling and donating our used IT equipment and office furniture.
Target 16 Peace, justice and strong institutions
Netcompany firmly condemns all use of child labour, human trafficking and any form of exploitation of any human being. We have implemented internal policies such as our Anti-Slavery Policy and our Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy to make our stance clear to both our employees and business partners. We have also implemented a whistleblower system where reports can be filed anonymously by anyone that may have suspicions or knowledge of any discrepancies.
Target 17 Partnerships for the goals
At Netcompany, we offer and apply our expertise in this field to the societies we operate in. We collaborate with governments, trade organisations, universities, NGOs, and other associations, engaging in dialogue and committing to initiatives that promote technology and engineering as a means to solve some of the difficult issues we face in this world. Our govtech solutions help governments and public authorities manage everything from the payment of child benefits to citizens’ health information and taxes, thereby building more digitised, sustainable societies.
