We contribute to a sustainable Stockholm

Sustainability is a central component of Stokab’s business and involves continuous improvement in our selected focus areas. We strive to lower the climate and environmental impact of our operations by setting annual targets and pursuing various activities in our environmental and climate action plan, together with work we do in our sustainability areas.

Our sustainability work

Agenda 2030

For the City of Stockholm and Stokab alike, sustainable development is based on Agenda 2030. The City shall be a role for implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and their targets. Actively striving to ensure human rights is a given for the City of Stockholm, which is something that is also fundamental to achieving the goals of Agenda 2030.

 

Stokab carried out a materiality analysis to decide which areas to focus on based on a survey originally answered by our stakeholders in 2016. Stakeholder engagement is an ongoing process, however, and it helps ensure that the focus areas we work with are consistent with the expectations on us as an operator-neutral supplier of fibre infrastructure.

A fossil-free organization

Stokab actively strives to help ensure that the City of Stockholm achieves its goal of becoming a fossil-free organization by 2030. Innovative solutions, such as energy-efficient technology, utilization of the residual heat from nodes and core nodes, and reuse of materials in our network are just some examples of how we do this.

Sustainability reporting

Stokab reports its sustainability work in accordance with the requirements stated in the Annual Accounts Act and in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, Core Level. Consideration is also given to governing documents, which the Group has adopted for each area. The COSO framework (Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission) is used for the company’s internal control work. It involves identifying the activities that are most important of ensuring effective management of any risks or errors that could possibly prevent the Group from achieving the goals that have been established for each focus area. Internal control work is documented, continuously monitored and reported to the executive management team twice per year.
