We keep our promises and take responsibility for our work.
ESG targets and metrics
We pay special attention to material efficiency at our sites. At Jatke, this means cutting down the amount of waste from building materials and improving the processes for sorting and recycling. In our construction, we strive for sustainable and energy efficient solutions and minimize the environmental impact of our operations throughout the building’s lifecycle.
With respect to the reduction of waste, site coverage of the figures is also reported. Waste volumes do not include waste from demolition work carried out by subcontractors. An investigation into the monitoring of these volumes will be started in 2023. The recycling rate excludes all recycling that takes place as a result of sorting carried out outside Jatke’s construction sites.
Regarding the reduction of emissions and electricity consumption on construction sites, the share of Jatke’s sites covered by the figures is also reported. Initially, only construction sites are included in the measurement of electricity consumption, as they account for the majority of the company’s electricity consumption compared to its offices. Jatke has offices in four locations. In terms of energy efficiency, the share of self-development projects that have reached or exceeded the energy efficiency index referred to in the EU taxonomy is reported.
Best employee experience in the industry
Ensuring a safe work environment for each employee at Jatke’s offices and sites is our top priority. We are committed to developing occupational safety and wellbeing at work. We genuinely care about our personnel and work to ensure that our employee satisfaction remains at an excellent level. We develop
our systems and practices by listening to our employees, and our goal is to provide the best employee experience in the industry. We offer traineeships and work opportunities in the construction industry for students in the field.
We measure employee experience with a net promoter score (NPS)* given by employees. The score for employee satisfaction is obtained through Jatke’s personnel survey (average on a scale of 1–5). The number of trainees is based on information obtained from the HR system.
Accident frequency is calculated by using a standardised calculation method. A general, statutory definition is used for determining which accidents are serious.
At Jatke, good governance means open and transparent operations. We are committed to sustainable procurements, and require our partners to also act sustainably. We observe Jatke’s Corporate Governance Code in all our decision-making.
The metric for combating the shadow economy, the suppliers admitted to the supplier register, is obtained from Jatke’s own supplier register, which is cross-checked with Vastuu Group’s database. The metric for transparent business is the number of suspected cases of abuse processed by the company, with the number obtained through the reporting channel to be introduced in early 2023, with a company-external party processing any identifiable suspected cases of abuse. The data for 2022 was obtained from the organisation in charge of the company’s legal affairs.
