The Openness Act and social responsibility

The Transparency Act, human rights, decent working conditions and anti-corruption.

Awareness of responsibility in everyday life
We are aware of our responsibility, and by assuming the social responsibility that lies in CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), our business model ensures that we are socially reliable towards ourselves, our stakeholders, our partners and society at large. We have and take responsibility for human, social, environmental and industry-related matters.

Our decisions and measures create room for lasting and positive change. By creating awareness around this, and also showing social responsibility in this way, we are leading the way for restructuring and change that will have a positive impact on the future for all of us. This is how we shape the business world and business models of the future.

Quality & information security

Through a wide range of products and services within information and communication technology, we will put together the best solutions so that our customers' IT everyday life is as worry-free as possible. We will satisfy our customers' requirements and needs through a continuous focus on improving our processes, services and products based on:

  • Customer feedback and internal evaluations.
  • Aquiring proper competence, and knowledge of technological development.
  • Efficient deliveries at agreed time and cost.
  • High service availability through stable and reliable operations.
  • Automated processes, as well as documented and updated routines to ensure proper quality and avoid critical deviations.
  • Anchoring the principles of good information security and quality within our organization.

Our basic framework for working with information security is the following:

  • Customer values should be identified and handled in such a way that they are not lost, corrupted, misused or mislead.
  • Our processes, systems, services and products should be planned and used in such a way that their availability, integrity and confidentiality are safeguarded.
  • Employees should be familiar with our safety instructions and our communication plan.
  • Suppliers and partners must comply with our information security requirements.
  • Unwanted events should be prevented and we will learn from events that occur.

Sustainability and external environmental impact

We work actively to reduce our direct and indirect negative impacts on the external environment.

I Braathe we must work actively and purposefully to continuously reduce our direct and indirect negative impacts on the external environment. Through our work with quality, information security, working environment and our environmental commitment (ISO 9001, 27001, 45001 and 14001), we want to take care of the environment and make a positive contribution to achieving the UN's sustainability goals.

We have incorporated requirements for environmental management in the general management system in the same way as requirements for e.g. safeguarding quality, health and safety.

The direct negative impact our business has on the external environment, with resource consumption, pollution and waste as a result of our employees' activity in the employment relationship is limited. Nevertheless, it is both desirable and entirely possible to reduce the impact through concrete measures.
