Acting as a responsible corporate citizen

From capacity utilisation to new training systems, we run our company responsibly in compliance with our Code of Conduct.

Smarter utilisation of our capacity

Consistent with the overall business principle of doing more with less, we ensure that our factory sites have very high production capacity utilisation rates in order to maximise the value-to-resources ratio.

A never-ending journey

Recent years’ challenges in the global supply chains are fading slightly, but they continued to dominate relations with suppliers in 2023. We have launched a new Supplier Partner Programme that also integrates ESG factors, including climate impact, in the criteria that define a preferred partner for GPV.

We have increased the share of suppliers with a signed Code of Conduct from 42% in 2020 to 67% in 2023 measured in value of purchase, despite the challenging situation during the recent years.

Certified in cyber and information security

At GPV, we take the trust placed in us by our customers and business partners seriously. We have a high focus on cyber security to ensure that data is handled with great caution.

GPV is certified to the ISO 27001 standard for cyber and information security. The ISO 27001 certification, formally known as ISO/IEC 27001:2022, is an information security standard, which provides a framework and guidelines for establishing, implementing, and managing an information security management system (ISMS). The ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that GPV follows best practices with information security management and that customers can trust in GPV as a reliable EMS partner.

Strengthening our organisation

In our sustainability efforts, we have set a goal of preparing a Sustainability Roadmap. The initial step of this process was completed in 2023 when a double materiality assessment was prepared to form the basis for the themes and areas on which we will focus as part of our sustainability efforts going forward.

The double materiality assessment is a requirement in the preparations for the new European Sustainability Reporting Standards – ESRS – but it also serves as a platform for preparing the overall Sustainability Roadmap, which is expected to be completed during 2024.
