Trelleborg Group’s Corporate Responsibility Report for 2008 published
In the foreword entitled “Continuous improvement leads to positive development for people and the environment,” President and CEO Peter Nilsson writes:
“The Trelleborg Group takes responsibility for issues relating to the work environment, environmental impact, business ethics and social responsibility in a variety of ways. Through our polymer solutions that seal, damp and protect, our business has many positive effects and contributes to the development of society in the environment and work environment areas.”
“At the same time, we are systematically working to prevent and minimize the environmental impact of our operations. In recent years, we have taken clear steps to increase the efficiency of the Group’s energy use. These efforts continue and at the same time, we are reducing the climate impact of our operations.”
“We account for all of our corporate responsibility work in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines to provide our stakeholders with the most transparent information possible regarding Trelleborg’s operations. Our Code of Conduct, which is the most important comprehensive document for our employees in terms of corporate responsibility, is based on international conventions and agreements. We participate in the UN Global Compact initiative for responsible business practice, and we encourage our suppliers to work in accordance with these principles.”
“With the help of the principle of continuous improvement, we are constantly developing our corporate responsibility and the reporting on how we manage that responsibility.”
