Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Sustainability plays an important role in the core business of TNO. Sustainable operations in addition to the economic, societal and social impact on society to which TNO contributes through the five themes with the roadmap approach also focus on how we can best achieve this impact as an organisation.

Sustainability is also an important theme for TNO internally. The focus is on people and the environment. The staff are essential for TNO to perform its mission. The core values of TNO (integrity, independence, professionalism and social responsibility) are herein an important guideline for the way we work. More information about the core values can be found in the TNO company code.  In the field of environment, TNO’s CSR policy focuses on the priority areas: energy, reducing the impact of missions and sustainable procurement. You can read more on this in our sustainability report. This report is integrated with the annual report of TNO.
