Diebold Nixdorf Releases Comprehensive ESG Performance and Priorities Report
Diebold Nixdorf, a global pioneer in automating, digitising, and revolutionising people's banking and shopping experiences, released its 2021 environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report.
The 2021 Diebold Nixdorf ESG Report, prepared under the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards Framework, shows the company's achievements in environmental stewardship, global citizenship, and corporate governance during the year.
Diebold Nixdorf's ESG programme, which consists of three major components, is a key foundational element of the company's global operational structure and helps define its culture.
Planet, focusing on key environmental areas, including climate change, sustainable products, sustainable field operations, materials used, waste produced, and resource management. In 2021, we promoted recycling, focused on using environmentally sustainable materials in our products and solutions, and worked to reduce our carbon footprint, use of energy, and other resources.
People, prioritising social imperatives, including diversity and inclusion, our continued COVID-19 response, global citizenship, financial inclusion, human rights, and health and safety. In 2021, we continued to build upon our employee-focused initiatives, commitment to corporate giving, and diversity and inclusion initiatives while providing needed support within the communities where we operate.
Performance, maintaining best practices in corporate governance at the board of directors and leadership levels, as well as across our code of business ethics, enterprise risk management, and cybersecurity and data privacy. In 2021, we introduced a Global Sustainability Council to oversee our sustainability and ESG strategies, policies, and programmes and report progress on KPIs and other developments.
Octavio Marquez, Diebold Nixdorf president and chief executive officer, said:
"A key component of our mission as a company is to work as a caring and kind corporate citizen that recognises how an organisation touches and impacts the world around it. In 2021, our company continued to build its ESG programme and made solid progress, especially against the backdrop of a challenging macro environment. We are very proud of our accomplishments into 2022, and we continue to do our work the right way, adhering to our highest values with great care for our people, partners, stakeholders, and the world around us."
