We believe that socially responsible business significantly contributes to the long-term sustainability of our organization and is the only way to create added value for all our stakeholders.
Corporate social responsibility policy is a document that encompasses and determines our relationship with relevant stakeholders that our business decisions and business activities have or may have an impact on, or cause changes in the environment that directly affect or may affect stakeholders.
Corporate social responsibility is an integral part of our corporate culture and business policies, and we especially develop and promote the following areas of activity:
The Zagreb Stock Exchange is aware that satisfied employees are the strength of the company and that they lead to more successful business, so we strive to develop corporate policy that encourages growth and development of employees, their creativity, abilities and talents. We continuously invest in improving the working conditions of all our employees, while human rights and health and safety of workers are promoted to levels higher than stipulated by law, while paying special attention to employee education by encouraging them to participate in all seminars we organize as part of our educational activities.
The Zagreb Stock Exchange is guided by socially responsible criteria in employment, especially taking into account gender equality, hard-to-employ individuals and other sustainability criteria, striving to create an inclusive work environment.
The Zagreb Stock Exchange pursues a policy of protecting whistleblowers and a policy of zero tolerance to bribery and corruption.
2. CHILDREN'S RIGHTS
It is extremely important to include children's rights, their needs and security in conducting business operations of the company. Guided by this fact, the Zagreb Stock Exchange has been promoting children's rights for many years, both through various initiatives, advocacy and education of employees, and additional rights of parents' employees that directly and/or indirectly affect the children's rights. The Zagreb Stock Exchange will continue to promote children's rights and work for the benefit of children, both through the already mentioned activities and the introduction of new ones.
"Supporting employees in their parenting or caring role, employing young people and ensuring that the next generation has the skills needed to grow business are just some of the concrete steps the business sector can take." (UNICEF Croatia: "Principles on Children's Rights and Business").
