Corporate Responsibility

To us, putting good IT into practice for our customers also means making a more positive mark on society.

In addition to a general approach to proper and fair business conduct, we support the principles of responsible business in the UN Global Compact and report on our progress annually to the UN.
At NNIT, our CR policy is closely linked to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 
We have identified four SDGs where we see our work adding most value, and we are committed to making a more positive mark on business and society through our activities within this framework.

Helping school children navigate in the digital world

NNIT is a founding partner of the Coding Class initiative in Denmark, which aims to open children’s eyes to the endless opportunities of technology so that they gain a better under- standing of the digital world surrounding us. We collaborate with Coding Class by giving school children an assignment that they have to solve using digital tools and coding. This year, the children invented games to help us sort trash and reduce water and food waste.

Ensuring IT talent development

Our Corporate Vice President Kristine Stenhuus is on the Board of the IT University
of Denmark (ITU). The Board is responsible for securing ITU’s interests as a leading institution of education and research within IT in Denmark. Our CEO Per Kogut is Chairman of the Board of Digital Hub, whose purpose it is to attract top international talent, customers, and capital to accelerate growth in the Danish digital ecosphere.

Increasing diversity and minimizing gender the gap

We are firm believers in equal rights and opportunities, and we believe that a diverse team performs better and thrives more. Our Diversity Policy serves to increase diversity at all levels across NNIT. In 2020, we reviewed our people policies regarding gender neutrality to ensure equality between all genders (e.g. in relation to parental leave).

We also analyzed the gender salary gap at NNIT in Denmark. In 2020, the pay gap
between women and men was less than 10%, and we will continue the work to
minimize gender salary gaps on both a local and global scale.

 

Supporting sustainable development in the IT industry

NNIT participates in networks and organizations working to ensure sustainable development on several parameters in the IT industry.

Through the Danish ICT Industry Association (IT-Branchen), we are a member of
the Forum for Sustainability, Digitization and Standardization, where we contribute
actively to developing guiding standards for the IT industry.

Improving our own infrastructure

We are reviewing our company car policy with the objective of changing our fleet
to electric cars and offering a more sustainable choice for private transportation.
We have purchased chargers for electric cars to be placed at our HQ parking lot, and we are collaborating with car sharing service companies to offer our Danish employees the opportunity to take less polluting transportation to and from work.

Innovative solutions

We help our customers lower their CO2 emissions, for example through our Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality services, which we accelerated in 2020. We offer a number of solutions in this area, including virtual meetings, faster assistance
from experts with no transportation and training simulations.

Lowering our CO2 emissions

In 2020, we began measuring our CO2 emissions on a global scale, with the intention of lowering them in 2021 and on beyond. This work is extensive, but we find it necessary.

Our data centers run on green energy

NNIT owns two data centers and rents a third. Data centers are critical to the future
infrastructure of society, enabling digitization and effective utilization of data.
NNIT purchases 100% green energy for all our Danish locations, which means that our energy comes from either wind or hydro power. Furthermore, our own data centers are very energy efficient, ranking well under the European average Power Usage Effectiveness level (1.6), which results in lower energy consumption.

However, we believe we can contribute more in this area. Therefore, we are working on a solution in which the surplus energy generated from our data centers can be used for heating in the local community.
