Responsible business

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

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.

Code of Business Ethics

Our Code of Business Ethics sets the tone for how we conduct business globally. It is acknowledged by all employees at the time of employment and repeatedly throughout the term of employment. We have zero tolerance for corruption and bribery, and have set high standards within the areas of responsible sourcing, the environment, occupational health and safety, human rights and labor across our operations.

Through Ericsson’s Compliance Line – an independent whistleblower system - employees and external parties can report suspected violations of law or the Code of Business Ethics via phone or a secure website.
