As a family-owned company, SHV relates strongly to the most widely used definition of sustainability (introduced by the UN in 1987). SHV believes sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. SHV is in business to create ongoing value, not only for its customers, partners and shareholders, but for everyone.
SHV and its Groups aim to fulfill the needs of tomorrow by doing good today. By doing business in a responsible way and by finding the right balance between result, tradition, innovation and sustainability.
Sustainability is of high importance for all SHV Groups and the way they conduct their business. Even more can be done by targeting the areas where SHV can have the most impact and truly integrating sustainability in the company strategies.
