Our Responsibility

Responsible business with a long-term perspective

Sustainability and a company’s impact on the climate are determining factors for customers today. This leads to increased demands from our stakeholders and new requirements, as well as possibilities, for us as a company. Polygon takes on its responsibility through Polygon’s Our Responsibility programme.

Our Responsibility Programme

Polygon’s Our Responsibility programme aims at providing guidelines for us as a company to minimise risks, to safeguard our values and to act sustainably, responsibly and with respect for our customers, employees and society in general. The programme also goes hand in hand with our business model, the Polygon
Model.

Our Responsibility Programme include three Key Areas

REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Restoration is our core business. We bring valuable property back to life. This limits the use of new materials and equipment, and reduces waste. In the end, our way of working decreases both environmental impact and cost.

FIRST-CHOICE EMPLOYER

Employees are Polygon’s key resource. We employ over 4,750 people in 16 countries. Their dedication and knowledge are crucial to our success. Our focus is always on the customer and on delivering our promise. We have an instinct to help, and we take responsibility with a clear accountability. This attitude is key to the
success of our company and ensures that Polygon is a firstchoice employer.

RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS

It is our responsibility to conduct business using high ethical standards and with respect towards different stakeholders, such as customers and society. We expect our people to lead by example, with our values of Integrity, Excellence and Empathy as their guiding principles. To promote sound business practices and to
act in an ethical way and with high integrity, we place great emphasis on implementing our Group Policies.
