TNO’s motto is ‘Innovation for life’: we connect people and knowledge to create innovations that sustainably boost companies’ competitiveness and increase wellbeing across society. As an independent public organisation, we want to do this in a responsible and sustainable way. TNO has adopted a clear policy on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to put its ambitions in this area into practice in its operations. The CSR policy is closely linked to TNO's strategic goals.
TNO's CSR policy focuses on the five key points listed below:
In the TNO Sustainability Report 2020, these key points have been translated into four priorities: Supply-Chain Responsibility, Energy & Sustainability, Working Conditions and Innovating Responsibly. We report extensively and in depth on these priorities.
TNO joined the UN Global Compact in 2020. By joining, TNO has committed itself to the ten UN principles on socially responsible business practices and the ten Sustainable Development Goals. We are focusing on seven SDGs where TNO can achieve the greatest social impact, thanks to its knowledge and the position it occupies. Our contribution to the seven SDGs is clearly illustrated in an impact model.
