People in a meeting at Tobii

The way we run our business

As part of Tobii's sustainability work we identify our most material aspects to understand Tobii´s significant impacts on the economy, environment and people, and their importance to our stakeholders.

Our material topics are in line with our business strategy and we’ve built our sustainability approach around three strategic areas related to how we run our business:

Sustainable employer

Behind Tobii’s success you find our brilliant employees, the Tobiians. They are the ones who shape our strong company culture, which enables us to achieve our goals. We want to be an awesome company where employees smile on their way to work as well as on their way home.

Remaining a top-ranked workplace
Tobii strives to be a top-ranked employer in Sweden and internationally. We are on the list of Sweden’s most attractive employers in the market research company Universum’s annual ranking. Our second largest office in Pittsburgh, US, was recognized as a Top Workplace 2020 for the fifth year in a row.

Diversity and inclusion
We are passionate about creating an inclusive and welcoming environment that values and embraces diversity. Diversity and inclusion is present in our strategic business decisions as well as in our everyday work and goes well beyond our legal obligations. Today we have employees from over 50 different countries present at our headquarters, and solid collaborations across all our offices around the world.

Wellness and fun at work
Supporting a healthy, fun, and engaging workplace is one of our focus areas. Our event committee “Fun trackers” drive activities to continuously work on our culture and togetherness. While “Team Tobii” our wellness initiative is also carrying out several different activities to encourage employee wellbeing. Tobii has a broad range of benefit schemes and programs across the company, most commonly in order to support work life balance and further employee health.

Environmental responsibility

At Tobii we recognize the challenges linked to climate change and the effects it can have on human health and the environment. We therefore strive to reduce our own climate footprint in several areas and run our business in an environmentally sustainable way.

Product design and lifecycle management
Tobii is committed to reducing the environmental impact of our products throughout their life-cycle, from manufacturing to use and disposal. Materials play a major role in how users perceive our products. When choosing materials, Tobii aims to improve the user experience, the lifetime and usability of the product, as well as minimize environmental impact and improve our material efficiency.

CO2 emission and energy consumption
As part of our Environmental Management System in Tobii AB, we analyze and follow-up our environmental impact annually. We continuously optimize our supply chain to reduce the CO2 emissions from our transportation of products. Part of our environmental impact comes from energy use in our offices. We have already introduced 100% renewable energy on the premises where we have our own contracts, and for the offices where we have direct contract with electricity suppliers, we systematically monitor energy consumption and work to improve our energy efficiency.

Ethical conduct

It is important for us to be a transparent and responsible company that builds and earns trust, collaboration, and high dedication. We have strong common values and high standards in terms of our business ethics and our actions, as a company and as individuals. This is important to be a positive force in society, and to retain a good reputation, repeat customers, and motivated employees. Our policies are part of onboarding new employees

Tobii's Code of Business Conduct
Tobii’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics defines the business ethics principles that the organization follows. 

Whistleblower policy
The Whistleblower policy includes information how to report complaints, what to report, treatment of reports, results of investigation, communication and protection of whistleblowers, including a non-retaliation clause. Any employee may report openly, confidentially or anonymously and the reports are handled confidentially. 

Anti-corruption policy
Risks of bribery and corruption are tackled as part of the risk analysis that Group Management conducts every year together with the Board of Directors. Tobii’s Supplier Policy also stipulates zero tolerance of all forms of bribery, corruption, extortion, and embezzlement. 

Data security and privacy
We have a set of routines and procedures in place to ensure compliance to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and we are committed to ensuring that data privacy is protected. Our Data Privacy Policy outlines how Tobii handles personal data. 

Supplier Sustainability Program

Tobii is a global company with suppliers spread all over the globe. Being the supplier of end-products and platforms, Tobii does not handle the raw material itself, but sets required standards that should be followed throughout the supply chain.  

As a vital part of Tobii’s sustainability work, we strive to ensure that our suppliers and subcontractors conduct business to the highest applicable standards regarding social, environmental and governance (ESG) and have processes in place to ensure they do. The program stretches from qualification of new suppliers over the full period of engagement. The standards and requirements are clearly stated in the Supplier Code of Conduct, aiming to ensure that all suppliers and their subcontractors assume environmental and ethical responsibility, that working conditions are safe and fair, and that workers are treated with respect and dignity. The Supplier Code of Conduct requires all suppliers to respect human rights in the spirit of internationally recognized standards including ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We monitor compliance tand drive continuous improvements through our audit program.
