SOS International Sustainability Report 2021
Good health and well-being are one of the goals of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that SOS International identifies. We see our work with sustainability as a part of our social responsibility.
The effects of the pandemic on mental health became apparent in 2021. It is widely acknowledged that COVID-19 has led to increase in anxiety and depression. We recognise this development. In the first six months of 2021, we saw an increase in cases involving psychologist assistance in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. This increase might be COVID-19 related.
We have selected six SDGs, which are close to our core business and which we consider valuable guidelines in both the daily operation and the overall strategy. In 2021, we have continued focusing on how to implement sustainable business practices throughout our organisation.
As an example, our Mobility Division continues to reduce the emissions associated with our assistance services by reusing resources and offering green services.
As a part of the strategy for the coming years, there will be focus on embedding the selected Sustainable Development Goals. We believe that sustainability is more important than ever, and we strive to develop new sustainable solutions and ways of providing assistance in dialogue with our customers.
