Standards, assurance and certifications

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards have been used in compiling our Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Report 2019.

We follow up and report on our progress in accordance with globally recognized standards. We utilize the UN Global Compact steps to support the global goals, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to assess the environmental impact from our activities, and the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights Reporting Framework to advance human rights in business.
