Our Commitment

SYSTRA has an unwavering commitment to safety, ethics and corporate social responsibility across our operations.

Safety and ethics are at the heart of how SYSTRA operates. As we expand internationally and adopt more complex organisational structures that transcend geographic borders, our commitment to safety and ethics is all the more important.

As a business and employer, we are also strongly committed to corporate social responsibility.

Health and safety

The health, safety and welfare of employees, clients, business partners, members of the public and others is of prime importance to the SYSTRA Ltd Board.

SYSTRA Ltd are committed to:

  • Pursuing the goal of eliminating the risks and hazards to people associated with the business;
  • Maximising safety performance;
  • Maximising safety culture;
  • Playing a proactive role in promoting best practice;
  • Ensuring a clear line management structure for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) responsibilities;
  • Managing OH&S matters as per other critical business activity; and
  • Promoting a culture in which all employees share this commitment, safety is everyones responsibility.

In this way SYSTRA Ltd aims to have an OH&S performance to be proud of and to earn the confidence of colleagues, Clients and Contractors.

We have Senior Leaders trained in safety leadership and actively seek the views of our employees, to help maximise our safety performance.

We constantly re-evaluate, reappraise and refine our policies and procedures as part of our unwavering commitment to safety.

Our Board owns and directs our safety action plan and behavioural based safety programme, with support and advice from our Health and Safety Professional.

Ethics

At SYSTRA, ethics are a non-negotiable business fundamental. As an international company with an operational presence in 80 countries, it is essential we have in place rules and robust processes that enable us to conduct business on a local and regional basis while adhering to the highest global standards. As part of our international expansion strategy, in 2016 we recruited a Group Compliance Officer.

Our approach is anchored by strong leadership from the top and supported by a number of tools designed to cascade our Code of Ethics throughout our organisation. These include our mandatory e-learning module about ethics and specialised ethics training for employees whose roles and responsibilities require deeper understanding of the issues.

Corporate social responsibility

SYSTRA made substantial progress in 2016 with our corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments. It is an area that is not only important to our Executive Committee but also to our staff. This year we engaged with all our employees to understand what CSR means to them and developed an online platform to capture knowledge, ideas and best practice from our offices around the world.

Crucially, we implemented minimal CSR requirements into our internal management system. This approach will help ensure that global policy is rolled out, enacted and delivered locally.
