Governance, policies and guidelines

Robust corporate governance and a values-driven culture help us to optimise the efficiency of our processes and integrate ethics, the environment and social issues in our strategic decisions and our way of working.

Clas Ohlson works actively on sustainability issues that are integrated into the operation and have high priority.

Our Code of Conduct is the foundation for our work with monitoring and devolving our supply chain. The Code of Conduct defines the requirements and instructions that both co-workers and partners are expected to follow

We support the UN Global Compact’s ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Our policies, guidelines and ways of building relationships with our stakeholders reflect our commitment.

Until December 2016, Clas Ohlson had a sustainability forum in which the company’s strategic orientation, set targets and monitored progress were defined. The sustainability function is now part of Group Management and the Board receives regular updates.

Our most important policies, guidelines, instructions and manuals are regularly updated and communicated. General guidelines and instructions are published on our intranet and policies that include partners are available on the website.
