Our sustainability work is structured carefully both internally and externally. In our activities, we follow guidelines and policies based on the latest international principles.

In order to efficiently manage our sustainability work, we have clearly defined roles and responsibilities in the sustainability team, sustainability and QEHS network and Sustainability Leadership Forum. The highest authority in sustainability matters lies with our Board of Directors and Group Management Team. 

Our sustainability work is guided by our Sustainability Policy, Human Rights Policy, QEHS Policy, governance practices, operating principles and ethical principles, which are based on the ten international principles of the UN Global Compact. Fazer signed the UN Global Compact initiative in 2012.
