Corporate Governance

Corporate Governance

For clients, it’s very important that Unica safeguard their business continuity. That’s why Unica spends a lot of time on its stakeholders, strategy and oversight of the correct implementation of business processes. 

Staff are of paramount importance at Unica. Unica wants to be an attractive employer in its sector and offer staff longer-term opportunities and so build loyalty to the company.

An informal way of working, a flat organisational structure and a genuine team spirit are important to Unica. Fun, good communication and respect for each other are key at Unica. By working with our colleagues, clients and suppliers in multidisciplinary teams, Unica’s staff are able to deliver the best and smartest solutions. By inspiring each other, learning from one another and helping each other out, our staff achieve the best results and contribute to our slogan ‘Together we create the future’. 

The prevention and identification of safety risks are key points in Unica’s policy. That’s why Unica is one of the initiating companies behind the Governance Code ‘Safety in Construction’. Staff should not be exposed to potential risks, such as risks relating to electrical or other energy sources, fire, vehicles and fall hazards. These risks are managed through sufficient oversight. Safety is guaranteed through good procedures and ongoing safety training. If these things cannot sufficiently mitigate risks, staff are given suitable, well-maintained, personal protective equipment and educational material on the risks related to these dangers. Staff are encouraged to share any concerns about safety issues.

Code of Conduct
Unica's good reputation is a key foundation for future contracts and business relations. In order to maintain Unica's good reputation, all its operating companies and business units operate in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations. To clarify what is expected of employees, Unica has adopted a Code of Conduct which includes rules on how Unica employees should conduct themselves in the performance of their duties. The Unica Code of Conduct has been drawn up in accordance with the model of Stichting Beoordeling Integriteit Bouwnijverheid (SBIB). This foundation was founded by the organisation Bouwend Nederland in order to promote the integrity of the Dutch building sector.

The Integrity Reporting Procedure (Dutch: Meldregeling Integriteit) is part of Unica's Code of Conduct. These regulations describe what employees must do in the event of (suspected) business integrity violations and abuses and how any report of these will proceed. A confidential (anonymous) report can be made via the external independent portal

Code of Sustainable Supply
Given its leading position as the Netherlands’ most sustainable technical service provider, Unica believes it is important that people and the environment are treated responsibly. That’s why Unica applies the Code of Sustainable Supply, as part of which its partners and suppliers also adhere to a sustainable and socially responsible way of doing business. The code contains agreements relating to work, health & safety, the environment, ethics and management. As such, the code includes articles on working hours, discrimination, safety on the work floor, sustainability and environmental matters, and integrity. All articles in the code are important for the responsible and sustainable way of doing business that Unica applies in all its work.

Unica’s partners must sign the Code of Sustainable Supply when concluding a framework agreement or contract. It goes without saying that Unica also applies the agreements in the code. 

Together with its clients and partners, Unica uses its position as the Netherlands’ most sustainable technical service provider to offer a wealth of solutions and initiatives that have a positive impact on reducing carbon emissions, the reuse of available material and the more targeted use of available resources. 

Energy neutrality, i.e. the energy transition, and the circular economy are topics that Unica promotes in different ways, e.g. by making the built environment sustainable and innovative and signing the Green Deal. Unica has set up a Sustainability Board within its organization in which the expertise is bundled around circularity, energy, supply chain, certification and business development and where the activities of Unica are provided with ambitions and goals based on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Unica has high standards for all aspects of our services, which is why we allow our business to be assessed and certified in a number of areas. For clients, this offers additional confirmation of Unica’s expertise and commitment.
