ESG

Sustainability for us means securing GScan’s long-term (i.e. sustainable) success by balancing economic, social, and environmental aspects of our business. ESG is at the core of our company’s mission: “To keep the world intact and make societies safe”. GScan OÜ recognizes the need for a structured approach to address these areas and ensure long-term sustainability and stakeholder value.

Responsible products

Achieving our mission happens through creating responsible products. Our both product lines (NDT and Security)  and the groundbreaking technology behind them directly contribute to ESG goals.  The following UN sustainable development goals and targets are directly impacted by our products as follows:
