The responsibility and impact of procurement are close to our hearts. Both perspectives are always strongly present in joint procurement and all other projects in which we are involved.
Hansel’s responsibility work focuses on nine points. They are placed on the materiality matrix based on their significance and impact.
We are strongly involved in public procurement networks. We compiled the information on our different stakeholders.
Corporate responsibility management
Our corporate responsibility group consists of representatives from different parts of the organisation. Together, they conduct responsibility analyses for our joint procurements, for example.
We measured our emissions
We wanted to improve our understanding of the company’s emissions, so we found out what our “official” GreenHouse Gas (GHG protocol) carbon footprint was.
As part of the tendering we have arranged with our customers, we have started measuring its impact.
A good number of tenders
The number of suppliers increased significantly in 2021. At the end of the year, Hansel had 872 suppliers, whilst one year ago, there were 624.
The possibility of auditing was discussed
We ordered a report on legislation, auditing models and methods, and different certification and standard systems.
Gypsum treatment of fields for the benefit of the Archipelago Sea
The Ministry of the Environment currently has a project in Southwest Finland called KIPSI, funded by the Water Protection Programme. Hansel was involved in the tendering for it.
Responsible cleaning services
The responsibility requirements are also increasing in the cleaning sector. The DPS for cleaning services takes full account of the promotion of environmental, social and economic responsibility.
