Our approach to sustainability

Itera aims to be recognised as the specialist in creating sustainable business. We have made sustainability a driver for our services and solutions, we have dedicated employees who want to help make a difference – and we have good partners that will accelerate business opportunities that will bring about a greener future.

Digitalisation and sustainability go hand in hand

Technology is increasingly a driver and a prerequisite for more sustainable solutions. Itera’s competitive advantage is that we have the expertise, experience and delivery capabilities that can meet our stakeholders’ expectations. We constantly aim to integrate sustainability into our deliveries.

Living up to expectations

Itera has numerous stakeholders. We affect their day-to-day activities – and they affect ours. In order to gain insight into what our stakeholders expect and require from us, we have updated our stakeholder and materiality analysis. This provides valuable input for Itera’s strategic business decisions.

On the basis of the stakeholder and materiality analysis, we have prioritised the following topics:

  • Deliver, often with partners, complete, digital, sustainable solutions
  • Create a safe and responsible return on investment
  • Ensure that all employees are treated equally and feel included in
    an increasingly diverse culture
  • Focus on employees – people first

of the 169 UN Sustainability Goals targets can be directly supported by digital technologies.

Our prioritised goals for a sustainable business

We are committed to being part of the global effort to create a sustainable world. Through our strategy work, it became clear that Itera cannot make a meaningful contribution to all of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Our approach is therefore to prioritise those goals where we can make a difference through our company.

We are open about what we do

Itera is committed to reporting its sustainability work in a transparent way. This is also in line with the growing requirements to which listed companies are subject. Itera’s objective is to have a set reporting structure that we regularly use to report on our targets, where we are in relation to them, and what measures we have taken for the KPIs we have prioritised.
