Contributions by Cybercom and its clients

All Cybercom's assignments are registered in the CRM
system with regard to how they contribute to the global UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Cybercom strives for assignments that bring one or more sustainability effects. This may include, for example, servitisation, dematerialisation, increased transparency, security and energy savings.

Business ethics are addressed at each executive leadership meeting, and potential new clients and assignments that use digitalisation to accelerate development in the opposite direction from Agenda 2030 are discussed. For example, we have opted out of assignments for certain gambling companies and political organisations. From 2018, we also categorise and follow up new client assignments based on the assignment’s potential contribution to the UN’s global Sustainable Development Goals. We clearly see that our assignments make a positive difference. In 2020, 73% of our business contributed
to one or more SDGs. In terms of revenue, Cybercom and its clients contributed mainly to Goal 9, followed by Goals 11, 16, 8 and 12.
