Conducting business responsibly
Being responsible, open and transparent is the foundation of our approach to corporate sustainability. We work continuously to improve and strengthen our business practices in all areas of corporate social responsibility; economic, environmental, social and ethical standards.
Every action counts
Our business ethics set the tone of how we operate globally, are acknowledged by all employees at the time of employment and, repeatedly throughout the entire term of employment. We have zero tolerance for corruption, high standards in all CSR areas—and in everything we do. Through our independent whistleblower system, both employees and external parties can report suspected violations of law or business ethics.
Responsible business framework
We have group policies, processes and directives within responsible sourcing, occupational health and safety (OHS), environmental management, anti-corruption and human rights, and other areas. Our group management system includes Code of Business Ethics, Code of Conduct, Sustainability Policy, and OHS requirements. We are committed to uphold UNs’ Global Compact Principles and to implement their Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights throughout our business operations.
The implementation of these policies and directives, risk management and achievement of objectives are all audited by an external assurance provider, under our Global Assessment Program.
