Sika has installed a Sika Sustainability Advisory Board (SAB) which became operational in 2016. The SAB has been established to support a business model based on sustainability. An independent expert opinion aims to provide Sika management with further impulses regarding the direction and implementation of Sika’s sustainability strategy. The SAB reviews the Sika sustainability practices step by step and has issued a number of recommendations during 2017, which were reviewed. This leads to an adaptation of the measuring and reporting structure.

As a consequence, Sika will refine the training and education structure as well as the target setting principles for sustainability. In addition, a more detailed monitoring of the many social projects will be initiated, so that the company will have an insight into the benefits delivered.
