Our corporate sustainability governance framework

Our governance model is designed to ensure an integrated approach to how we build our strategy, make decisions and organize our work.

The board of directors is the governing body that approves the overall strategy of the Company and approves the investments needed to reach our targets and goals.

The responsibility for defining and implementing our ESG strategy and targets is governed by management.

The work with our ESG topics is placed within its corresponding departments, defined and prioritized within the boundaries of our four strategic priorities and is substantiated through our cross-departmental strategic projects.

Our strategic projects are owned and sponsored by a member of the management team, who is driving the project and is responsible for the final content presented to the management team and to the board. For further information on our governance framework, please refer to our Annual Reports.
