Within the USS group, we already have taken initiatives in interacting with local communities, for example in the form of sponsorships to sport and youth activities. Our intension is to align community involvement and sponsorships in direct relation to our material impact assessment outcome and achieve a corporate profile on our efforts.
The complience of labour market regulations, human rights, equal opportunity, health and safety for our own staff as well as for the workers of our suppliers is a focal point. We do have USS Code of Conduct that safeguards these issues. We are making equal pay for equal work analysis and reporting on corporate level to the Swedish authorities. Furthermore, we are in the process of developing and implementing systems and software to investigate and monitor the conditions related to our suppliers’ workers according to the EU Transparency act.
We are developing the Corporate Sustainability Reporting structure for the entire group, in order to comply with the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) according to the established time schedule.
USS shall report on the 2025 figures for the first time, hence our setup will be ready within the termination of 2025. However, our ambition is to have the setup ready well ahead of this point in time.
