How Roger is building a better working world
“Europe, and in particular Switzerland, are traditionally a globally important location for commodity companies. In the last decade, this importance has increased significantly. The ecosystem includes retail companies, as well as financial institutes, goods inspection companies, shipping companies, and insurance companies.
Our goal is to actively accompany and participate in the dialog with the parties involved in the ecosystem.
EY sees itself as a pioneer in the transformation from regulatory domination to digital reality. With our vision and our approaches, we help to further strengthen the attractiveness, innovative strength, integrity, and responsible practice of commodity companies – and to increase understanding in society.
EY is also called upon to specifically address and assist authorities and raw materials companies with regard to business risks, human rights, environmental and social standards, corruption and reputation from a consulting standpoint.
This also helps to make understanding in society for this branch of industry more open and transparent.”
