Environmental Social Governance
We take Environmental Social Governance very seriously. It is our corporate social responsibility to make our contribution for all of our futures.
What responsibility means to us
Conserving the environment, sharing knowledge and supporting organizations for the common good
We are in the wonderful position of being able to contribute our expertise in cloud solutions to projects with sustainable benefits for society and the environment. One representative example is the digital service platform myKWS from the international seed specialist KWS SAAT. The platform is an example for greater sustainability in agriculture: It enables farmers all over the world to increase their harvests significantly and sustainably – while also using less fertilizer.
Customer projects like this fit in ideally with our “Skaylink way”. This includes proactive conservation of resources: Wherever possible, we use green energy, a paperless office and e-mobility.
Environmental Social Governance (ESG)
Over the holidays in December 2021, we planted 210 trees in the Skaylink Forest in Madagascar. We implemented the project together with Treedom.
Go Green is an initiative of our location in Essen, Germany. 100% green energy and corporate responsibility when it comes to sustainability in our mobility and in our work environment.
With our Christmas donation campaign “Skaylink cares”, we seek to support like-minded organizations in doing good. For this purpose, our employees have selected charitable organizations that are close to their hearts. Skaylink makes a donation to them.
ITEC Cares Award 2022
The ITEC award honors initiatives and projects that promote digital skills and digital literacy among children, youth and young adults.
Skaylink Environmental Social Governance
In addition, we have initiated the charitable campaign “Skaylink cares”: Every year at Christmas season, our employees can suggest small, regional and like-minded organizations. Six of these organizations are chosen through a vote, and the donation amount is then divided among these winners. This is just one example of our many support campaigns, most of which take place behind the scenes.
Currently, these activities are still stand-alone and not integrated into a Skaylink ESG framework. We are working on this together with our employees, and we also seek to be measured against these initiatives. Because in a world where environmental, social and societal concerns are more urgent than ever, we should keep these connections in mind and lead by example.
“Sustainability is part of our services – this is why we use energy-efficient technologies and green energy – and this influences all of our corporate decisions.”
