We care about each other and the world around us

We are extremely committed to everyone in our Sigma team. And since we are a colourful mix of people from all walks of life, we are also committed to taking good care of the world around us.

As a large company, we have a huge responsibility to the ones who work at Sigma and the ones we do work for. But we also have a strong belief that we should take an active role in creating a better tomorrow for people all over the world. And with great people, with great ideas that drive development forward, this defines our operations and processes as well. 

Some of our commitments and social projects may seem small and insignificant, but more than often, small means a lot and sometimes it is the small frequent efforts that make the biggest difference.

Reducing our emissions by 50% by 2030

As part of our climate commitment, our target is to reduce our emissions by 50% by 2030 with the reference year 2019. We aim to achieve this by reducing our direct and indirect emissions according to the scope 1 and 2 of the GHG Protocol, striving for efficient and sustainable energy usage, optimizing resource consumption, encouraging sustainable commuting and reducing business travel.

Swedes for Ukraine

With almost 2 000 colleagues at Sigma Software in Ukraine, we have a special bond with the country. And when we now witness Russia’s brutal attack on their homeland it breaks our hearts. But not our spirit.

Swedes for Ukraine is a web-based platform, built by our colleagues at Sigma Software, colleagues who are still in Ukraine and want to make a difference for Ukrainian refugees who are safe in Sweden but in need of housing.

The platform makes it possible for Swedes, who have an extra room or two, or a vacant house, to get in direct contact with Ukrainians in Sweden, and offer them a place to stay.

The Expect a better tomorrow foundation

There are theme days for almost everything and nowadays even one for a better tomorrow. We decided in 2017 to make New Year's Eve “The International Expect a better tomorrow day”. This is the day when we present an initiative that will highlight an injustice, an imbalance or share knowledge about an important issue. And thus create a better tomorrow for someone or something.

During the first year, Segerpotten raised money for the winner of the Damallsvenskan (Swedish Women's Football league). The following year, the Funkisfonden reported on the positive effect that sport has on everyone with intellectual disabilities. Haveriet raised the levels of ocean literacy and recruited young sea ambassadors and last year, Femmegineering, our initiative to get more women into engineering and tech education, was launched. In 2022, we want to highlight the invaluable contributions of clubs and associations to Swedish life through the initiative Heja Klubben!.
