Our journey towards corporate sustainability

Integrating environmental, social and governance matters at the heart of our business.

Embracing our societal responsibility with purpose

That includes by contributing time and capital to laudable organisations and important ideas, serving as an agent of positive social change.

Learning and career opportunities

We like to help our people prepare for their job now, and in the future. In 2022, we introduced Education Week. During five working days, we organised 28 workshops to promote a culture of education. The sessions had topics such as: presenting like a professional, creating collaboration, managing the manager, making stress an ally, easing your mental load, understanding how your brain works and managing like a coach. Although certain sessions were aimed at specific target groups, such as managers, the workshops were open to all employees.

Mental health training programme

The Mental health training programme was designed for employees who wished to deal more calmly with the challenges of everyday life. The training provided the opportunity to better know and understand different reactions to stress, thus identifying the possible appropriate and positive responses. Attendees acquired tools to manage reactions to stress with serenity and anchor practices in everyday life.

Quintet group graduate programme

The Quintet Group Graduate programme has been in place since 2020, with four to five graduates joining the programme each year. Through a two-year rotation based programme, graduates can experience four different areas of Quintet’s business, while being trained and developing professional competences. During the programme, graduates can be based in any Quintet location. International mobility is encouraged to share experience, explore the corporate culture and local specificities, building a strong network across the group. We seek diversity within our graduate community and have accordingly recruited from a variety of academic backgrounds.

OUR CORPORATE IMPACT ON THE PLANET

We have been calculating our carbon footprint across all locations and different categories such as energy, transport and business travel. By having knowledge of our impact, we understand where we can act. We are undertaking a number of initiatives across our sites to reduce our environmental impact, including for example energy saving campaigns, increasingly sourcing electricity from renewable energy sources, waste management initiatives and a reduction of packaged materials like bottled drinks. This is a journey to be continued.
