Ericsson places great importance on how we do business. We must win business on merit, ability and fairness, follow a clear code of business ethics, and act vigorously to correct any irregularities we encounter.
We work continuously to improve and strengthen our business practices, with a focus on building and maintaining trust, transparency and integrity. Regardless of where in the world we operate, our respect for human rights, fair and safe working conditions, and ethically and environmentally sound business practices is fundamental to our culture and identity as a company. This commitment to responsible and ethical behavior starts at the top and is embedded at every level of our company and implemented throughout our organization by a comprehensive ethics and compliance framework.
Every action counts
With business in 180 countries, prevention, detection and accountability are paramount. We believe that every employee has a responsibility to act with integrity, to identify and assess relevant ethical and compliance risks, and to take appropriate actions. Employees and suppliers that observe or suspect violations of our Code of Business Ethics or Code of Conduct are encouraged to raise these concerns either with line management or through Ericsson’s independent whistleblower system, the Compliance Line.
