Sustainability: Höganäs joins UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. Participating companies pledge to follow ten UN principles within sustainability. Now, Höganäs seeks to be one of them.

The purpose of the Global Compact is to make participating companies take responsibility within the areas of human rights, labour, environment and corruption. Based on a set of ten principles, participants pledge to adjust their business so that they, in a sustainable way, contribute to the development of societies and economies.

- Sustainability is a strategic priority for Höganäs and by joining the Global Compact we demonstrate our clear commitment, says Nicklas Lång, Vice President and head of Höganäs’ Sustainability department.

- The UN Global compact does a good and important job and by us joining, we support their continuous work. At the same time, we get access to networks and tools that are of use on our own journey ahead.
