SHV believes in doing business in a responsible and sustainable way – by finding the right balance between people, profit, planet and pride.
Thinking about the needs of future generations and the role of SHV in society takes a central place at SHV.
Even seemingly simple actions such as consuming fairtrade products and the correct recycling of waste products can make a long-term difference at the scale at which SHV and groups operate.
But their approach to sustainability goes further than reusing, renewing and recycling. SHV actively encourages the combination of environmental awareness and innovation. The investor and operating companies are continually looking for ways to improve their operations.
Relevant examples of initiatives to increase energy efficiency include greater and more efficient use of natural light in Makro stores, the green label vehicle fleet of ERIKS and the improved use of big data to reduce carbon footprint at SHV Energy.
