Sustainability guides our business

Our sustainability aim is to create green growth through net positive products and services. Being net positive means that we contribute more to the world than we take from it. Today sustainability is essential part of any successful business. The key is to understand the continuously evolving stakeholder expectations on sustainability, anticipate the changes in your business environment from sustainability perspective and make sustainability a competitive advantage for your business.

For us, sustainability is not a competition, it is about team work. We are happy to share our expertise in the area of green growth and collaborate with various research institutes and leading companies around the world. Sustainability management is about taking concrete actions that have an impact. We are proud of the progress we are making and the sustainability journey we are on. Sustainability is and will be at the heart of Neova Group’s strategy and purpose – Creating Green Growth.
