The continuous engagement with the various stakeholder groups is an important priority for S IMMO. The teams at the parent company in Austria and at the subsidiaries in Germany, Hungary, Romania and Croatia are familiar with the properties and the local conditions and foster long-term relationships with relevant stakeholders.
S IMMO is committed to complying with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Bill of Human Rights, the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and eight fundamental conventions, and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
Furthermore, S IMMO pledges to adhere to Council Directive 76/207/EEC of 09 February 1976 on the implementation of the principle of equal treatment for men and women as regards access to employment and the 1979 UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). S IMMO also undertakes to promote and protect the rights of minorities as laid down in the 1992 United Nations Minorities Declaration. S IMMO is additionally committed to complying with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and is therefore not at all involved in and does not condone the illegal employment or exploitation of children through work.
In addition, S IMMO recognises the right to clean water as a fundamental human right.
For S IMMO, it is important to take responsibility beyond its core business and support charitable projects in the countries in which it operates. The company therefore supports various Caritas projects in Austria, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria that are aimed at providing homes to people in need and providing a better outlook for the future of young people.
