Reporting, policies and publications

A set of specific corporate governance guidelines for the ISS Group has been adopted by the Executive Group Management Board and subsequently implemented by all regional and local entities.

At ISS, we are proud of our efforts in the Corporate Responsibility sphere and report on an annual basis in line with the new GRI Standards by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework. 

We have chosen to be in accordance with the ‘Core’ option. An overview of the GRI Standards disclosures included in this report can be found in the tables in the Report. We have also used the ISO Standard ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility and the Danish Standard DS 49001 ‘Social responsibility management system – Requirements’ as a basis of our analysis and reporting. 

In addition, we also work with the principles of SA8000 pertaining to labour and human rights. The SA8000 Standard is a tool for implementing international labour standards to protect employees. 

The Report is also the statutory report on corporate social responsibility cf.§99 a and §99 b of the Danish Financial Statements Act. 

The reporting furthermore serves to fulfil our obligation to Communicate on Progress (CoP) as required by the UNGC.

UK Modern Slavery Act

Our policy is to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any part of our business and in any part of our supply chain. This is consistent with our Code of Conduct, Corporate Responsibility Policy, Supplier Code of Conduct and Global People Standards. Our Global People Standards cover, among other areas, pre-employment checks, zero tolerance for forced and compulsory labour, right to privacy, and child labour. 

We conduct internal audits to verify we manage these risks in our operations. We recognise that certain categories of our supply chain carry a higher risk of child or slave labour and we therefore in 2017 implemented a new Supply Chain Policy and ISS ProcurePASS.
