Doing business responsibly is a fundamental part of meeting stakeholder expectations on business ethics, managing risks and ensuring that we contribute to societal development where we operate.
As a multi-national ICT company we face major challenges related to corruption and business ethics, how and from who we purchase, freedom of expression and surveillance privacy, how we keep our customers’ data safe, and more. We are committed to Responsible Business to manage these challenges and to meet stakeholders’ increasing expectations. By doing these things right we turn risks to opportunities and create positive changes in the societies where we operate.
Our Responsible Business work focuses on eight areas:
- Anti-bribery and corruption
- Children’s rights
- Diversity, equal opportunity and non-discrimination
- Freedom of expression and surveillance privacy
- Health and well-being
- Responsible sourcing
- Safeguarding customer information
Other areas of key importance for ensuring responsible business practices are e.g. human rights, responsible tax practices and sanctions.
