Our value chain

Effectively managing our negative and positive impact requires an understanding of where in the value chain we can make the biggest difference. The value-chain perspective helps us to identify possibilities and risks, take responsibility and create value for our stakeholders. This can revolve around social, labour, human rights or environmental issues and macro-economic effects.
