Sustainable business
– our responsibility

Our focus is on creating value for our stakeholders and taking responsibility throughout our value chain. This approach helps us to identify opportunities to drive positive change and minimize negative impact. Together with our suppliers and customers we want to create a more sustainable industry with growth and profitability for all. We believe that strong relationships and transparency are key to achieving this.

Our highest performing sustainability assessment themes were Sustainable Procurement and Ethics.

Our vision is to be “The number 1 PCB producer wherever we are“. In 2023, we continued our challenging and important sustainability journey together with our customers, factories and employees. Here are some examples of our actions and achievements during that year:

  • The result of the employee satisfaction survey showed a continued high degree of engagement among our employees and NCAB was named best employer in the Brilliant Awards.
  • NCAB received an EcoVadis Gold rating for our sustainability work.
  • The focus remains strongly on social and environmental sustainability at NCAB’s manufacturing partners, along with greater focus on climate impact in the value chain and in our own operations.
  • Continued our sustainability audit programme in factories, conducting regular sustainability audits on-site at factories, improving health and safety and working conditions, and environmental performance. 
  • High quality performance – 99.6% – continued developing our quality processes and performance to keep high quality and reliability level, and to minimize scrap and resources used.
  • Continued investing in employee skills development, specifically leadership, sales, technology and onboarding of new employees.

NCAB Group whistleblower function

If employees of NCAB Group or other stakeholders discover serious irregularities or misconceptions that violate our Code of Conduct, we want them to feel confident about reporting this. We have thus set up a whistle blower function, involving an external party to whom employees can turn. Their issue is then anonymous and passed on to the NCAB Group’s investigative function.
