Decent Work and Economic Growth

More progress is needed to increase employment opportunities and reduce labour market inequality. Thus, the focal point of goal 8 is to promote sustained, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all. This includes achieving higher levels of productivity through technological upgrade and innovation.

Roth strives to increase transparency in our supply chain and to be part of collaborations promoting sustainable transitions. We want to deliver growth and stable financial results, enabling us to keep innovating and creating solutions that are up to date with fast-paced technological developments. By achieving this, we can invest further in the development of future products supporting a sustainable transition.

As a proud family-owned organization, it is important that we ensure both fair and sustainable standards in relation to suppliers, customers, and our employees.

In 2023, we incorporated our guidelines for values, rules, and principles for our behavior and actions into an official agreement between Roth North Europe A/S and our employees. These guidelines support a healthy work-life balance for all employees and enforce our zero-tolerance policy against any form of discrimination.

We have embedded this mindset into our due diligence assessment, conducting ongoing evaluations to identify both direct and indirect risks and potential to people, the society, and the environment.

Additionally, we have integrated processes and contractual agreements with our suppliers to ensure the identification of potential violations of universally recognized human rights conventions and accepted norms of decent working conditions.

One initiative is the establishment of our Whistleblower programme which allows both Roth Group employees and employees of Roth suppliers to report concerns and seek assistance if they identify harmful impacts on human rights or the environment.

In such cases, we take appropriate remedial measures or develop a plan to mitigate the issues. We also demand our suppliers take the similar actions to prevent risk and address negative consequences.

This work is grounded in the UN Declaration for Human Rights and our Code of Conduct.
