Responsible business - a cornerstone of Ericsson strategy and corporate culture

Our ambition is to be a responsible and relevant driver of positive change. We work continuously to improve and strengthen our business practices, with a focus on building and maintaining trust, transparency and integrity.

Trees in a clean environment

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 corporate social responsibility 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.
