Conducting business responsibly is the foundation of our approach to sustainability and corporate responsibility. We work continuously to improve and strengthen our responsible business practices in the areas of human rights, anti-corruption, responsible sourcing and health and safety.
Responsible business framework
Ericsson has group policies, processes and directives within responsible sourcing, occupational health and safety (OHS), environmental management, anti-corruption and human rights, and other areas. The Ericsson Group Management System includes the Code of Business Ethics, Code of Conduct, Sustainability Policy, and OHS requirements. We are committed to uphold the UN Global Compact Principles and to implement the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights throughout our business operations. Under our Global Assessment Program, an external assurance provider audits the implementation of these policies and directives, management of risks and achievement of objectives.
